The parent company is HQ'd outside of PHL is all, parent company is Apple Vacations. Also Punta Cana is one of the destinations they serve almost from each city they fly out of.

Not really, their a vacation airline that happens to sell tickets directly... mostly they do alot with apple vacations and other travel agencies... why would they make phl their main destination when travel agents book to the caribbean and mexico?

PHL isn't their hub, just their headquarters!

PIT even gets Punta Cana service from them, hahaha!

As stated PHL isn't a hub, yet it still is one of the larger stateside USA3000 cities. USA3000 doesn't have hubs, they are strickly focused on O&D from the East/Midwest to Caribbean/Mexico

I didn't think that PHL was their hub either. They do mostly p-2-p service as stated above. If PHL was their hub, then why isn't there at least one U5 jet for every US plane there???
