I would assume thier hub to be at JFK. However, i do believe that they operated in a southwest, poin-to-point style. Someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Like it has been said, JFK and MIA were the big hubs, but after the National merger they gained hubs in Houston and New Orleans. Both were short-lived. They also had a small hub at Dulles and rather large hubs in London and Frankfurt. During the early 80's, they sort of used LAX, SFO, and HON but theis was all discontinued after the United Pacific route sale.

Where is HON? Are you referring to Honolulu (HNL), or somewhere else?

PanAm had major hubs in FRA, MIA, and JFK, which is how Delta acqiured these hubs after PanAm went down.

MIA=Miami right?? I'm not IN with airport codes. I just know a few. That's interesting because that's where II and III were/are based. Purpose or coincidence?

Thanks for all of your help!
