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.
*Fairbanks was served
*mini-hub/focus city in Seattle and Portland
*Denver - former UA Express operation became codeshare in 2006 (previously operated by Great Lakes Aviation for UA Express?)
*Few Miami routes no longer in service today

Quoting Jimyvr (Reply 2): *Denver - former UA Express operation became codeshare in 2006 (previously operated by Great Lakes Aviation for UA Express?)
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.
