Is Oxnard considered a hub or a focus city for United Express. After all, UAX has more flights into Oxnard than any other carrier, so it must be considered something.

Why would that matter? theres only flights from Oxnard to LAX. Oxnard is a mere spoke. UAX is the only airline that serves there. Just because MOD has like 4x daily service to SFO on UAX doesn't make it a hub/focus city.

Ok, I'll admit it. I posted this as a little light humor so we can laugh at ourselves! In the past few weeks, there has been such a flood of posts trying to determine if a city is a hub or a focus city. There have been debates, arguments, etc.

I remember when I was 14, I loved it when a pamphlet mentioned my home airport (BOS) as a min-hub. Made me feel kinda special. (At the time, DL was the only airline that considered BOS a mini-hub).

But then, if an airport is not a hub or a focus city, it does not mean it's chopped liver!

OK OXR is important to me as my very first non-rev flt (not comp. bis) was LAX-OXR and on to Vandenburg, SMX and PRB. Hows that for puddle jumping?

Living near Oxnard I will definitely say that it is neither.  Big grin Actually heck I've never even flown out of it and I've lived here all my life, most people (and I mean like 99.5%) drive to BUR and LAX. Of the remaining .5%, .3% drive to Santa Barbara. So this is clearly not a major airport...

This is hilarious, as I grew up about 10-15 minutes from OXR and my dad's business is about 5 minutes from there. They actually used to has decent service from Eagle and UAX, flying to SFO, LAX and other CA cities. AWex briefly had dash-8s to PHX. We are back to UAX to LAX only now. Very few people use the airport, but I am using it to fly home for thanksgiving (cool stuff). CMA (KCMA, Camarillo CA) in my home town, down the road is actually a much, much busier airport and would be better suited to commercial ops. It wont happen because of NIMBYs, but it could support a municipal airport like SNA if they allowed it

That is too funny N1120A, I added you to my RU list because of the 74E post a few days ago, and I didn't even know we were from the same home town. Right now I go to UCI, but I was in Camarillo over the weekend. Not much else to add about OXR or CMA, both are rather small in operational scale, but it would be nice to get some express service other than LAX only.
