I don't think they have ever used it as a hub. Some airlines may have had a lot of flights from their but never used it as a hub. It isn't located in an ideal location. It is in southern California and the only conceivable reason to make it a hub would be for connections to the Pacific rim and SNA will most likely never have that opportunity. It is too small and the noise restrictions wouldn't allow it.

AirCal used SNA as their hub (hence the IATA code OC, for Orange County, used by AirCal). For a history of AirCal, see http://members.aol.com/aircal737/ochist.htm

John-Wayne / Orange County Airport is too small to be used for a hub. But it is probally the best alternative airport in the country. But if the new bigger Orange County Airport is built I am sure Alaska Airlines, United Airlines or Delta Airlines will make a hub there. But I would like to see Continental Airlines make a hub in the West Coast espically in Southern California or Orange County.

If the John Wayne Airport does become a hub for any airline I think it would be Alaska Airlines making a hub there. Los Angeles International Airport is already a mini-hub for United Airlines. But I think soon some airlines will start international service with Boeing 767-200 from Orange County. But I can't until the new airport is built.
