was a bad idea anyway, there isn't a market for that.
would be pushing it I think, but would likely be profitable with the right aircraft.
, as you know, is a good market for AS
has a slightly smaller market but given a 717 I bet that would work as well. BOI
is of course another good market because most people in eastern idaho would rather drive to SLC
for a flight than drive to BOI
. I bet it's much the same in Boise, so you provide an option to fly people to a large hub like SLC
, and that works. WN
is making it work for them.
), USA - Nevada">LAS
, maybe PHX
...and maybe...though not likely....ORD
. Those are the possible markets I see for BOI
, and a few of them are already being flown by AS
mainline or WN
. Some of these would support a 100 pax airliner twice a day, some would support 80 pax once a day. BOI
are your best bets for a full airliner.
But, that does not make a hub. Again, the best Boise can ever be for a while is a focus city. It doesnt have the facilities, the market, the O&D, or the right location.
