Why would UAL or any airline, turn DEN
into a major international hub - or even a minor one? Especially NWA who have huge hubs in the middle of the country already.
I mean, just how many international hubs does NWA - or any airline - need?
Most pax coming to the US from Asia and Australia want to go to West Coast. Most pax from Europe want to go to either the East Coast or the West Coast - non-stop. And vice versa.
For those that want to go to/from the middle, apart from NWA's hubs, they have ORD
Mexico? Happening - both Frontier and UAL.
South America? There isn't that much traffic from DEN
to South America, and again, those that do go have DFW
get some more international service? For sure. Will it get a lot more? Not for a while.
