What US City Cud Merit Bein A Hub To 2+ Carriers?

Fri Jan 09, 2004 7:23 am

Sorry for the aberviations it wouldn't all fit. What other US city could merit being another hub to an airline? I think New York could be a major hub to another airline even though CO is there. Boston as well, along with Dallas, Houston, and Detroit. Portland needs a hub as well as Seattle needs a major  Sad.

DFW and ORD are already hubs for 2 airlines each.

I don't think Dallas could have another major - with AA, WN, small DL and a new FL focus.

Chicago is actually a hub city for ATA, UAL, and AA. In addition, it is a focus city for WN.
See you up front!

Detroit is a superhub for Northwest and also a hub for Spirit whose operations are going to grow there dramatically in the next couple of years.

I would expect we need to define "hub" for purposes of this discussion.

Detroit will see some growth, but, AFAIK, it is Ft. Lauderdale that will see the dramatic growth.

MDW is "hub" for Southwest and ATA and ORD is actually a hub for United and AA.

Sorry for the confusion. Dallas' WN prescence is almost nill. Only Intra-
texas I believe (correct me if I am wrong) and FL isn't too big there yet. AA is the only REAL hub. Does MEM really have enough traffic to feed another major airline? Could a second hub Detroit or Minneapolis work? How about San Francisco?

Stop by Love Field sometime, then tell me if you still think WN's presence at DAL is "almost nil." Yes, they are limited by the Wright Amendment to intra-Texas, neighboring states, and a few other states, but it's still a very significant operation--not to mention their birthplace and still the location of their headquarters.

Ditto with DL at DFW. Sure, it's dwarfed by AA's operation there, but there's no question that it's a hub nonetheless. And your previous comment that SEA "needs a major" is not quite right either--AS may not be the largest airline, but its hub at SEA is more than many U.S. cities can ever hope for, both in terms of size and quality of service.
