|Quoting Chrisjake (Reply 5):|
if you go to the southwest route-map on their webite and look at all the non-stops they have out of LAS, its hard not to call that their hub! IIRC, i counted only 13 of their total destinations are NOT served nonstop from LAS.
|Quoting TxAgKuwait (Reply 7):|
Southwest doesn't schedule based on connecting traffic, those opportunities just happen.
|Quoting Bobnwa (Reply 9):|
A designation of a hub has nothing to do with the number of flights a carrier has. A hub is passengers transfering between banks of flight at an airport to reach their final destination. Southwest does not schedule its flights to connect in banks.
|Quoting Tango-Bravo (Reply 9):|
As always, leave it to the legacies to take a good idea and ruin it with excesses, such as making aircraft utilization and operational efficiencies captive to the need to schedule flights to arrive and depart in droves from an airport at the same times.
|Quoting FCYTravis (Reply 16):|
Southwest has more flights, by far. Most of those LAS destinations on HP are only once-daily, in a pair of red-eye banks.
Walk through Concourses A and B about 10 p.m. on any given evening. Madhouse doesn't begin to describe it.
