What airline other than Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are the largest in Seattle?

It is close between United Airlines, Northwest Airlines and Southwest Airlines.

Also with Alaska Airlines expanding out of Seattle especially to the East and Horizon Air flying new routes to Southern California do you think any airlines will expand more service to Seattle to compete with AS and Horizon.

Man, this is a close one. I would say, conservatively,
1. UA
2. NW
3. WN

The closeness between UA and NW varies on the time of day. For example, when I was there in August, there were 2 DC-10s and one 742 plus a few 752 and one 753, while the UA terminal had some 772 and some 752s and 737's. It's really almost a tie, since they bot have their own terminal. Any other thoughts?

WOW! It looks like United Airlines wins over Northwest Airlines. I think United Airlines serves more destinations than Northwest Airlines.

Northwest Airlines does serve Europe and Asia from Seattle. At one time Northwest Airlines did call Seattle a "mini-hub" to the Pacific.

I heard sometime ago United Airlines could start service to London from Seattle. Then again United Airlines also has United Express serving cities from Seattle.

Both airlines have a opportunity to expand from Seattle as both of them have there own terminals.

United Airlines - Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, New York, Washington, Chicago and Tokyo (Narita), Bangkok via Tokyo.

Northwest Airlines - Minneapolis, Detroit, Honolulu, Tokyo, Amsterdam.
