|Quoting Walter747 (Thread starter):|
how come KL does not fly to BOS even though it says they do on the massport website. I know NW does the AMS route, but why wouldn't KL do it
|Quoting IAD380 (Reply 4):|
I am surprised that NW operates this route instead of KL. BOS isn't a hub for NW.

In the deregulated system that the US is, you technically don't need a hub to operate a flight. Of course, business is done out of hubs with a catchment area normally, but in this case it's a flight from the outstation BOS to the hub AMS. Remember, NW also does it with SEA and EWR, and used to do it with IAD in the past. Like Larspl said, KL and NW split the expenses and profits on their joint routes.
