I've heard rumours-and they are just that-rumours-that JB has aspirations to set up a hub in SLC to serve the West Coast. Can anyone confirm or disspel that rumour?
I would also like to add that I happened to notice that JB's customer comment cards have a mail to address that is in Salt Lake City. Unless they are going to some consulting company, JB must have an office of some kind there. Why do that unless you have some idea of building a presence that would justify having a corporate center of some kind? Mr Neelman was a founder of the late Morris Air, which happened to also have its hub at SLC. And we all know that airline CEO's tend to come back to cities they did well in before. As discussed before, apparently Delta wants to reduce or eliminate its SLC hub. This would provide a nice opportunity for Delta to unload some of those routes via some kind of marketing agreement just like American did with Reno Air in SJC and Midway in RDU. Granted, JB still needs to mature a bit and firmly entrench themselves in JFK before branching out....any thoughts/comments?
Like I said...it's just a rumour I heard.
