Someone was talking about Continental's LAX hub. I am looking at several Continental schedules from the mid-80's and they also flew LAX to Tampa, San Diego and Tahiti. Looks like the main hub was Denver followed by hubs at Houston (both Hobby and Intercontinental) as well as Newark, Washington Dulles, New Orleans, Honolulu, Guam, LAX and a small connecting port at San Jose CA. They had many flights to Laguardia from Florida and flew to just about every city in the US from the size of Casper and up. Interestingly they also flew nonstop Miami to London and JFK to Honolulu. I don't think the mainline serves JFK anymore. I wonder why?
