MDW is the only hub at the moment. IND is the HQ, however is not a hub. All flights and transfers go through MDW (hence why Chicago Express is now d/b/a ATA Connection there). Regarding a west coast hub, who knows. Nobody is talking. However, there will be six 757-300s that are being used to fly strictly Cali-Hawaii runs for Pleasant Hawaiian Holidays vacations. Also, some L1011's are being used for the Funjet vacations out of MSP and MKE, and in the future those are expected to be done by 757's and/or 737's. With four added destinations in February, and hopefully a better gate situation in MDW with the new terminal, the number of aircraft we're going to have isn't going to create a need for a west coast hub.
To be honest, we do need a hub there so people can take advantage of ATA without having to always connect through Chicago. Right now, if someone in MYC wants to go to Orlando, ATA isn't the best option. The same is true for someone going from LA to Seattle. If there are hubs out west and east, this will help ATA tremendously in the long run. So would starting a frequent flyer program, but we won't begin on all the things that ATA needs to get it's act together on. For the times as they are now, I say everything is going REAL good here.
