You're half right, but half wrong, also. Northwest is HUGE in SEA
, always has been, and don't think that will change. The North Satellite also has one flight to YYZ
on Air Canada, as well as Air Canada Jazz to YVR
. My understanding is that US Air will also move their handfull of flights over to the North satellite shortly, to take advantage of their partnership with UA
If anything, UA
has downsized SEA
, especially since the dot-com bubble burst (we had a lot of those companies based in Bellevue/Redmond/Kirkland) that went away 3-4 years ago, and 9/11 didn't help, either. There used to be a nonstop to EWR
using an A320, but is now gone, as well as a DC-10/DC-8 to HNL
years ago. I can recall in 1983 a 747SP that went to HKG
also took over the SEA
flight from Pan Am in 1991, and used a 763, but that route was also discontinued, in 1993. I don't know if UA
still owns the SEA
slot, or if it was sold. I would sure love to see it come back though! Shuttle operated flights to SFO
, and I would reasonably expect Starfish to serve SEA
also, due to the high demand for low fare, north/south travel.
still has a crew domicile here, as well as a small maintenance facility, and a branch of their credit union in the main terminal. SEA
will always be an important city on the United map, but never has been/will be a United hub.
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!
