CO Nonhub Routes

Tue Sep 26, 2000 7:15 am

I think that it is sake to say that CO is the US Airline that is probably the most commited to its hubs, this by having very few nonhub flights. I was wondering if there were anymore than the ones I have:

SEA-ANC
LAX-HNL
LAX-SAT
and the upcoming
RIC-TPA and
RIC-MCO

Besides from all those Continental Micronesia ones, are there any others?

Continental was operating Mexico City flights to San Diego and McAllen but they may or may not have been recently discontinued.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

I believe that SAT-LAX is also operated....but i think that Northwest operates as few non hub routes (not originating at DTW, MSP, MEM, KIX, or NRT) as Continental:

LAX-LAS
LAX-SAN
LAX-HNL
SFO-HNL
SEA-HNL
TPA-MBJ
TPA-CUN ?? Do they still operate this one
Kalispell, MT-Great Falls

I think that is it....

I think CO also operates SAT-MEX. They go from UIO-GYE as part of their service from Houston to Ecuador.

Their Continental Connection service is also NOT hub-focused - Gulfstream operates from MIA, FLL, and SJU, while their upcoming service with Commutair is mostly not out of EWR. Their past service with Colgan had a pretty significant presence at Boston, also not a hub.

Pardon my ignorance, which are Continental's hubs? Huston certainly, but where else?Continental fly's SEA-EWR direct, this seems to be a non-hub route.

This is after shuttering hubs at Greensboro and Denver.

Continental's hubs in size order from largest to smallest are:

Houston Intercontinental (IAH) with 520 or so daily departures.

Newark International (EWR) with 375-390 daily
departures (This is CO's fastest growing hub)

Cleveland Hopkins (CLE) with 220-270 daily
flights, over 50% of which are operated by
Continental Express.

Guam (fewer than 20)

SAN-MEX is no longer operated. Two upcoming non-hu jet routes will be LGA-MCO and LGA-FLL, starting in December with 737 equipment.
