What do you guys think? They said they'd like to add routes outside of LAS and PHX for 2004 which presents an interesting question; what cities will the concentrate on? The obvious answer would have to be BOS, JFK, SFO, and LAX. Has anyone heard anything pertaining to this issue? In september or so I had heard rumblings about a possible HP expansion in STL into non hub markets, but that since has died down and I haven't heard another thing about it. I guess Leonard thinks he'll get farther talking to WestJet, Aeromexico, and Hawiian . Anyways, back to the original question, I was told in November they were looking into DFW, as that seems to be a very popular destination for them. I presented the idea here but it was shot down, has anyone else heard the same about DFW?

DFW-LAX is a very good possiblility. It is a route that would command higher-than-average yields for HP by flying non-stop. By overflying PHX, it would allow HP to concentrate on higher-yield O&D traffic from PHX to other markets.
