As far as new focus cities, I heard of two lately STL and PDX.
|Quoting LambertMan (reply 2):|
Omaha and Grand Rapids were mentioned in some previous posts as well...

I believe LAX-LAS was started because of cruise ship traffic. I doubt you'd see it without those contracts.

believe LAX-LAS was started because of cruise ship traffic. I doubt you'd see it without those contracts. Still, LAX is a pretty diverse operation at this point.

...Alaska have a strong schedule @ PDX

How about an MKE-AMS?
I can dream, can't I?
|Quoting Tango-Bravo (reply 15):|
Since Northwest has a well-established codeshare relationship with Alaska Airlines and Horizon
|Quoting PSU.DTW.SCE (reply 19):|
NW has steadily taken delivery of CRJ's
|Quoting NWA Man (reply 3):|
Rumor has it that MSN, DSM, and CMH are in the mix as well
|Quoting Meteorologist (reply 26):|
In fact, if you look at it, NW has slowly turned DCA into somewhat of a focus city operation.
|Quoting NWAskyteam (reply 33):|
CMH seems like a logical choice for next focus city now with seasonal non-stops on Saturdays to MCO
|Quoting MAH4546 (reply 35):|
Delta has a focus city operation in Columbus, and American Airlines/American Eagle has a sizeable operation. There isn't room, nor need, for another carrier to have a focus city.
|Quoting Chugach (reply 22):|
Although maybe not a traditional focus city, NW has a very diverse operation at HNL: Nonstop to ANC, SEA, PDX, SFO, LAX, and MSP. Also, do they fly HNL-NRT?
|Quoting Lrgt (reply 37):|
...and how is that not a focus city??? !!!
|Quoting Jetjack74 (reply 38):|
And a seasonal DTW
|Quoting NWA Man (reply 36):|
So, to sum it up, Columbus has:
-a location in NW's "Heartland"
-a reasonably sized NW operation
-a sizeable base of WorldPerks members
-a fairly large population
-no true hub airline
-a good amount of institutional traffic (state capital/home to OSU)
-receives/received service from decidedly non-Heartland aircraft in the past (
