Hello all. After reading some passionate discussions in other threads here, with several candidates to be "the biggest hubbing airport", or "the best O&D destination", it looks very clear ( to my limited knowledge ) that almost every major airport have a majority of traffic for one side or the other, but it is not so clear ( again, to me ) who has the best balance between this two "types" of traffic, which I guess will be the best possible scenario for an airport ( because this will provide some protection if a big downturn affects one of the "types" of traffic ).
In some threads I read, I get the impression, for example, that LHR has its best numbers due to O&D traffic, and hubbing goes behind. Other airports with an *apparent imbalance* are MAD, FRA, CDG, DXB and IST.
One could think that JFK could have a good balance since a lot of people has New York as final destination, but also a big number of people can use JFK to make connections to other U.S. cities....
So, according to your very informed and generous insight : Who has the best balance between O&D // Hubbing ??
And, is really and advantage to have that balance ?? Or is not that relevant ??
Thanks in advance !!
