Look at this little treasure...

http://ostpxweb.dot.gov/aviation/aptcomp/apt12001.xls

Interesting to note:

-ON A "SALES BASIS"-

  • United is larger than Delta out of JFK
  • AA makes just a little over 100 million more out of MIA than it does out of SFO (MIA is not that much of a revenue generator)

    Any other "shockers"?

    Wow according to that graph the top three airline hubs in terms of revenues are :

    1.) DL's ATL hub

    2.) AA's DFW hub

    3.) CO's EWR hub

    CO's EWR hub has to be the best pure revenue generating hub considering how much smaller it is compared to the number of flights and passengers at ATL and DFW which are more than double EWR's size.

    At HNL you must factor in the massive number of cheap interisland flights and large crowd of airpass holders who commute daily and get the most for their money. While flights to the mainland and elsewhere may be inexpensive at times, the real anchor bringing that average down are the interisland runs, where nobody should be paying more than $150 per flight.

    I have not have time to check out the figures, but thanks for the link. However, remember guys, revenue means nothing, profit means everything. Of course DL/ATL is going to have the highest revenue, it is the largest hub operation in the US! And if I am not mistaken, #2 in revenue, AA/DFW, is the 2nd largest hub operation in the US! And, someone correct me if I am wrong, but is UA's ORD hub (#4 in revenue) not the third largest hub operation in the US? Of course, CO's EWR hub as #3 makes perfect sense, yields at Newark are sensational. None the less, revenue figures do not determine just how profitable these operations are. That is not to say that Delta's Atlanta hub is not profitable, but using revenue figures is not an accurate way of comparing just how much money these hubs makes in the end of it all.

    UA making more revenue than Delta out of JFK does not surprise me. UA has the Heathrow and Tokyo routes and more trans-cons. Those are huge moneymakers for them.

    Never said revenue was the most important thing.

    Yeah, United "makes more sales" than Delta out of JFK... but it would also be shocking to see that United's operations are probably also more expensive even though United runs out of a much smaller set of gates, facilities, etc.

    You are correct that UA@ORD is the 3rd largest US hub (RPMs as the standard measure of size)... but the 4th largest "sale maker".

    Yep, just like with load factors, "huge sales" do not a money maker make.

    Sean, you're welcome bro.

    UA744Flagship,

    Where can you find figures for the number of RPMs generated from hubs?Departures are actually the determining factor of the largest hubs.

    It seems that CO may carry almost as many passengers from EWR as AA does from DFW. Why are AA's numbers for passengers carried so low? UA's ORD hub also accommodated more passengers than AA @ DFW so far for the year.
