What airlines have hubs in another country like what PA had going on at FRA ( but doesnt have to be on that scale). And there is some modern ones like IB at MIA even though they are oulling out in favor of n/s flights and using SAL. What are some other ones and they can be mini-hubs to, but I cant think of any other one's right now except for TG's India hub (??) and AF MIA operation which has some flights to the French Carribean.

Both UA and NW operate self-proclaimed hubs in Japan at NRT.

DL had a hub in FRA (old PA??) in the late 90s and UA arguably had a hub at LHR, offering connecting service to continental Europe from the mainland US.

According to NW - AMS is one of their hubs as well, but i think we all know whose hub it really is.

The only acceptible answers in this context are NW and UA at NRT. Evreything else seems a little bit far fetched.

NZ flies 5th freedom from LAX to LHR and feed this flight not only from AKL but also from CHC and various Pacific island destinations. But a hub?

LH flies from FRA and MUC to BKK and onward to SGN/KUL and CGK. But that is not a hub in my mind.

JoFMO. A hub is where an interchange of passengers occurs and the airlines schedule flight times to facilitate a smooth as transfer as possible. Hubbing often entails changing aircraft types as well. The LH services you listed are merely stopping services and don't hub.

Hubbing definitely happens at LAX with NZ. You will often see 3-4 aircraft, a mix of 744's and 767's, parked at the terminal. They are channeling pax to/from the London flight. NZ has a small international operation and a substantial proportion of its international fleet can be parked at LAX at one time. I've seen photos of up to 4 NZ 747's parked at LAX, about half the total fleet. Just because it's small, doesn't exclude it from being a hub.

The QF hub at AKL links their international services with the domestic flights operated by their subsidiary, Jetconnect. They also use it as a hub from South America and selected USA flights where inbound and outbound pax from places like BNE or MEL connect instead of going via SYD.

QF's SIN hub operations are huge, they are the second largest airline flying out of SIN after SQ. They (including Australian Airlines) take up a whole pier with flights to/from 7 Australian destinations to London, Frankfurt and Bali.

Not really, just a stop off.

Not really. I mean, they have at the most 4-5 flights a day.

Ryanair at Stansted.

Otherwise it'll mostly be alliance hubs rather than airlines themselves.

PA @ GUA in the 70's
CO had a 2 plane "hub" in PTY before they became CM-part owners.
In the 90's UA also had a "hub" in MEX when they got PA Latinamerican routes.
Rightnow CM does offer CM-CM connections @ MGA, but I'd hardly call it a CM hub.

They can't issue connecting tickets through CUN, can they?


25 Post contains images FlyMIA : Yea this hub has been gone for a little while now Cant think of any others?
26 Stirling : Then you could say Braniff had a hub at Panama City (PTY) as well. Both LIM and PTY had roughly the same amount of weekly flights. LIMA-34 Weekly-10

28 Vincewy : Sort of, a scissor hub, if AI really wants too, they should 1. Discontinue LHR-JFK sector, too many flights on his sector and yeilds are poor, check
29 Manni : Cathay Pacific at TPE with non stop service to HKG ICN NRT KIX NGO and FUK, and to a lesser extend Thai Airways at ICN with non stop service to BKK HK
30 Stirling : Just as HEL is a great hub for Europe to Asia (just ask Finnair), HEL could be a great transit hub for the Sub-Asian Continent (India, Pakistan, Bang
31 Pe@rson : Ryanair has bases in: Ireland (DUB, SNN and ORK) UK (STN, LTN, EMA, LPL and PIK) Spain (GRO) Italy (BGY, CIA and PSA) Germany (HHN) Belgium (CRL) Swed
32 Cornish : Ah but these are bases not hubs.
33 2travel2know : If AI would venture to have a hub in HEL (ARN, Stockholm Svaksta, Tallin ?) they should at least try to get traffic from Estonia, Latvia, LED, Moscow
34 Post contains images UAcosCS : UAL no longer does the NRT-PEK UAL chose to fly non-stop to the mainland. This flight is now SFO-PEK, But another one you missed was SEA,SFO,LAX,ORD.
35 Musapapaya : AB at PMI Regards
36 Burnsie28 : Well both UA, and AA call ORD a hub, NK and NW at DTW, so whats your point? NW offers connecting opportunities at AMS and has non-hub routes. AMS and
