1. Pan Am did not have hubs per se, unless you count the post National merger, in which case hubs existed in Houston and Miami. But they did have their "International" divisions: IDL/JFK for Europe, MIA for Latin America, and I believe SFO for the Pacific.
I'm not going to list every city served.
2. Eastern had hubs in MIA, ATL, PHL, and MCI. again, I'm not going to list every city served.
3. PSA's hubs were LAX and SFO, but they were based at SAN. Most cities in CA, OR, WA plus LAS, RNO, ABQ, BOI were served. Plus Mexico-Baja California.
5. I dunno. I was never in to Aeroflot.
6. same as #5
7. DAL, then later DFW. A lot of places. Again, I'm not naming all places.
8. JFK. LAX, SFO, Tel Aviv, Brussels, plus a vast charter market.

4. One An-225 exists
5. CCCP- is for planes during Soviet Union, RA- is for after, lots of previous CCCP- registrations received new ones with the same number, even with different countries for example if a x-plane CCCP-11111 went to...germany or something it would be just renamed D-11111. By looking at current registrations of aircraft from the former Soviet Union like UR- or EW- you can figure out the aircraft's previous CCCP- registration. That way you can find that certain aircraft in Soviet times.
6. Tupolev doesn't have any certain "plant". Tu-160s are built at Kazan. Tu-204s are built at Ulyanovsk. Tu-334s are built at Samara or Taganrog.

9. Tower Air had First Class and Business Class. I flew it once from BOS-CDG. Not the best F/C ever, but was still better than coach. The best part was that it cost only $50 more. It was a charter flight and all the seats were sold for like $399. We got to BOS and they told us it was $50 more for F/C, so we said what the hell. The service was less than desired...same coach meal, no PTV...but we got pre-departure drinks and the headsets for free. It was my only time on a 747, and I got to say i sat in row 2, thats pretty cool.
7. Tower hubbed at JFK...had some schedualed routes like JFK-Tel Aviv and JFK-MIA, other than that i dunno...plus charters
6. I think that it is the Ukraine...is that wrong?
