At a guess, how about somewhere like Orlando ?

Orlando looks the highest ranked non-hub airport to me (in fact the only one in the top thirty)

LAX is a UA hub

FLL is a mini hub for US

My guess is SAN or SAT

JFK is a B6 hub
LAX is alot of peoples big base but UA's hub
FLL is kind of one for B6 but not official and it is a sort-of US hub

My guess is MCO or SAN.

LAS is a WN, HP, and Allegiant Air Hub.

I guess you could also call it a focus city of Ted, but I might be wrong.

Maybe MCO?? I know WS kind-of uses Orlando as an almost "mini hub". I'll check it out and be right back with the routes they fly out of there.

Actually, most of the major airlines have a lot of routes coming out of LAS.

The most frequent are (except HP, WN, and Allegiant):
Delta/Song
Ted
AA

I also see quite a bit NW and CO when I look out my window.

probably not, because Delta/Song took over the Pan Am Terminals, Jet Blue came, and American Airlines took over 2 terminals. The only thing they lost was Terminal 5.

Dang, I thought this was going to be a thread about large airports with NO airline service...I was going to supply the unused St. Louis airport in Illinois (what is that one called again?).

There was a thread a while back about largest airports without a hub, based on population of the city. San Diego ranked highest on that last. In terms of passenger numbers, I believe MCO Orlando would be the highest.

Ok.. Southwest (WN) flies the following routes out of MCO:

  • MCO > FLL

  • MCO > RDU

  • MCO > OFK

  • MCO > BWI

  • MCO > PHL

  • MCO > ISP

  • MCO > SPI

  • MCO > PVD

  • MCO > MHT

  • MCO > ALB

  • MCO > BUF

  • MCO > MDW

  • MCO > GMH

  • MCO > IND

  • MCO > SDF

  • MCO > MCI

  • MCO > STL

  • MCO > BNA

  • MCO > BHM

  • MCO > JAN

  • MCO > MSY

  • MCO > HOU

  • MCO > ABQ

  • MCO > SAT

  • MCO > AUS

  • MCO > PHX


  • As you can see there a quite a few routes WN uses out of there, so not sure if MCO would be a canidate. Does anyone know if southwest calls this an offical "hub"?

    PanAm747,

    The airport's name in Belleville, IL is called Midamerica Airport. However it does now have airline service. There are flights to, I believe MCO with talk of adding LAS, on Trans meridian Airlines.

    Thanks, Josh!!

    Was going to call it "Great America" airport - I knew it had America in the title.

    Is Trans Meridian Airlines the only airline?

    Yes Trans Meridian is the only airline. However there have been a few that have come and gone over the past few years.

    Boston is B6's focus city. LGA is a focus city of USAirways, AA (domestically), and DL.


    25 Post contains links Lvkewlkid : http://www.skyguide.net/reference/hub.html has a map of all the hubs in the USA, except I think it needs to be a little bit updated, since DL de-hubbe
    26 Lvkewlkid : AA, US, B6, and DL all have focus operations in Boston. San Diego is a WN hub. MCO is a DL hub/focus city.
    27 Jetpixx : I would have to think MCO is not one to be included in this list - I am not sure if Southwest is an 'official' hub for them, but Comair and Chautauqua
    28 GentFromAlaska : Well it has to be BWI, cause Southwest doesn't do hubs. I think they call it point to point. A second guess would be Nashville (BNA)
    29 Boac707 : actually the biggest is Mirabel...big international terminal with no passengers flying there now.
    30 NYCFlyer : JFK is a hub for Jet Blue and a mini hub for BA (United States wise) AA, and DL. how is JFK a focus city for BA? you can only fly to LHR and MAN (less
    31 Lvkewlkid : WN does do hubs, but they are more of focus cities. The only true hubs would probably be LAS, BWI, and MDW.
    32 NYCFlyer : RDU is up there too - I don't buy the argument that they're an AA focus city anymore
    33 FlyMIA : WN does not have any hubs. I would say MCO.
    34 Lvkewlkid : PDX is a hub for AS, I think it is a hub for Horizon too.
    35 DeltaMIA : You need spokes to have a hub. How exactly does NK funnel passengers through FLL to an onward NK destination? Headquarters and hubs are two separate
    36 KLM11 : If you think SAN is not a "hub", think again. WN owns over half of terminal 1, and though it might not be WN's hub, they have over 70 daily flights, s
    37 ERJ170 : AUS is an AA focus city..
    38 NceBoy : YMX Montreal-Mirabel... Quite a big airport, but not a passenger in sight in the terminals ! I believe it is only used for cargo now, and the Bombardi
    39 Tiger119 : - Isn't the airport in Belleville, IL actually Scott AFB? I didn't think they had any civil, commercial traffic in and out of there.
    40 Doona : Actually, it's both. Scott AFB and Midamerica Airport share the airfield. The terminal actually has three or four JETWAYS! Been past there a few times
    41 HlywdCatft : Ok the situation of MCO and do people really know what a hub is? MCO has its most flights from Delta Airlines- That is counting Delta, Chataqua (Delta
    42 Cospn : LAX sounds Like More of a Gateway, Where Does UA Fly fron LAX that is non hub...Like HNL MSY SEA ....Mabe wrong but how many cities make up a "HUB" IN
    43 Doninfc : Based on airports with primarily O&D traffic, I'd say: 1. MCO 2. SAN 3. TPA 4. FLL 5. PDX Honorable mentions, in no particular order: MCI/MSY/SAT/AUS/
    44 Doona : LAX is a UAL hub, isn't it? ORD, IAD, DEN, SFO, and LAX, right? mats
    45 Trvlr : I wouldn't say that SAN is a hub for WN. I bet the traffic there is almost wholly O&D, and considering its geographic position there's very little opp
