John-Wayne / Orange County Airport is too small to be used for a hub. But it is probally the best alternative airport in the country. But if the new bigger Orange County Airport is built I am sure Alaska Airlines, United Airlines or Delta Airlines will make a hub there. But I would like to see Continental Airlines make a hub in the West Coast espically in Southern California or Orange County.
If the John Wayne Airport does become a hub for any airline I think it would be Alaska Airlines making a hub there. Los Angeles International Airport is already a mini-hub for United Airlines. But I think soon some airlines will start international service with Boeing 767-200 from Orange County. But I can't until the new airport is built.
