Like KL at AMS and SQ at SIN.

Thanks

JCS,

FR is a tricky one - they are based at DUB (not DBN) but the overwhelming majority of their flights are from STN. DUB is a mini hub really., like CRL, HHN etc.

Other examples are

Aer Lingus DUB
TAP Air Portugal - LIS
Aeroflot - SVO
Malaysian - KUL
BMI - LHR and MAN

Most airlines have their hubs at a major city (mostly a capital city of the country concerned) with bigger countries having exceptions, such as the U.S., China, Japan, Brasil etc.

Europe:
TP - LIS
SK - ARN, CPH (?)
OY - HEL
OS - VIE
BD - MAN (?)

Asia:
CZ - CAN
CA - PEK (?)
MU - PVG (?)
CI - TPE
JL - NRT/HND/KIX (?)
NH- NRT/HND/KIX (?)

U.S.
AA - MIA/ORD/DFW
DL - ATL/STL
UA - ORD/DEN/SFO

These are only few examples, any corrections on these are welcome.

SK has CPH as it's major hub, but since SAS is owned by 3 countries (Denmark, Norway and Sweden) all capitals are hubs in the SAS system (Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm)

UA has a little focus in Seattle. Mainline service only to their hubs, but also an flight to ANC and an international one to NRT. There are also some express flights to YVR, Spokane, Pasco and Portland.

Does NW get to count AMS as a hub or as a focus city?
There are always a good number of redtails there so it
feels almost like MSP.

Checking with nwa.com and the World Traveler inflight mag, they both say that NW considers AMS a hub.

AA has a hub @ STL, not Delta. They picked it up when they took over TWA.

UA also has a hub @ IAD.
