Pretty darn good........
Can you dig up a National, Capital and Northeast?
Shortly after, DL started Houston-Idlewild with DC-7's to compete with
On the CO, the service to the Northwestern US was a thru-plane with I think UA.
ALSO on CO, the KC-St. Louis was thru with BN and EA.
I have to point out that there were not hubs but routes were issued by the C A B(civil aeronatics board) and they were more point-to-point. The closest things to hubs in 1956 was DL at ATL, TW at MDW, UA at MDW, BN at DAL and CO at Denver.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

I remember flying Southern Airways from Memphis to Ft. Lauderdale when I was in middle school back in the 70's. I think the DC-9 made at least 7 stops along the way. The only stop I remember was Eglin Air Force Base. Hubs are fine but point-to-point was an adventure...especially for a 7th grader!

A good website for route maps is www.airchive.com. He has numerous route maps from airlines worldwide. These were scanned from my timetable collection. I still need Northeast, Nationala and Capital for 1956.
