This week the upload of route map drawing are the US Big 6 (AA, CO, NW, DL, TW, UA. US Air excluded because I didn't draw it)'s North American Route Map in the mid-90s. United Airlines' was drawn previously but worth a mention (under United set).




Start off with American in August 1991...

Worth mention is the hub/focus city in San Jose (CA), Nashville, Raleigh. Chicago didn't have great coverage like today.

The rest of the individuals will be mentioned progressively.

The map shows good flights cobered for MIA, JFK, DFW, ORD, but what about SFO or HOU, not well covered, only the megacities are with many flights from west-east or east-west coasts covered.

Most of flights....are especially by UA, AA or CO, they had the best routes and many frequencies.  Smile

Regards.

Great map. Did UA serve MDW and HOU at that time? I presume you used a system timetable to do these maps. Keep up the great work.

The UA Express agreement with Great Lakes expired in June of 2001. I remember when UA tried to build up IAD with service from small cities in NC, SC, and VA from 1989-1991. Needless to say, amid AA's RDU hub and US' CLT hub, they got clobbered. I also remember when UA Express/Presidential served IPT for 18 months in 1989-90, with service to IAD and ELM. Surprised no one else but US Airways feels IPT is worthy of scheduled service.

Need to check, since I rarely differentiate multiple airports within 1 city, otherwise the lines and dots will be crammed to each other.

With Continental in 1996....obviously there's no flights to Canada, all codeshare with Air Canada, a shareholder at the time.

It also had codeshare flights with America west.

Of course the picture has changed with more flights to the West Coast in 2006...

No problem. The only thing is the coverage for Domestic North America will be minimal because the OAGs I got are worldwide edition only

Northwest Airlines in early 90s....



Most notably on domestic side is the hub in Boston, with international flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Glasgow

Flights to the west and mountain area still not as fully developed compared to today.

It also codeshares with US Airways in the west coast (former PSA routes) as connection only. Horizon Air codeshare also in effect at the time

Delta Airlines in 1994 ...



The only notable difference is DFW was a significant hub in 1994. Plus there's few triangle routes which is a rare case today.

The last one, forgot to mention, is TWA.



The route network of TWA in Domestic USA seems pretty much a signal to its demise 6 years after. The only hubs were St. Louis and New York.

The domestic 747 route was St. Louis to Hawaii.
