TWA1985, Buon Giorno!
Welcome to A.net man
The definitions above for "gateway" cities do make sense. If I may look at US for the time being... Look at their hubs: PHL
, and PHX
is the international hub for US, as they operate 30 daily flights that mostly go across the Atlantic but they also go to the Caribbean/Mexico. These flights are also supported by some 400 domestic flights, some providing connections for these international flights.
is another smaller gateway to Europe, primarily the UK, and FRA
, I believe. It also serves a bulk of the Caribbean cities.
is the gateway to Mexico, with roughly a dozen Mexican cities served from PHX
via US. US also serves 4 Hawaiian cities from PHX
also has a few Mexican destinations served in addition to HNL
. If/when US takes delivery of the A350 or 787, then PHX
, as well as PHL
, could serve as Asia gateways. PHX
could serve as another gateway to Europe with such a plane, as has been discussed on here many times already.
