Re: Detroit ranked best connection hub in America by J. D. Power

I think naming Detroit the best connecting hub from this study is a bit of a stretch. I'm not saying that Detroit is not a good connecting hub, but this study was not ranking best airports to connect in. The study was ranking airports by passenger satisfaction. The six criteria included "termi...

Re: Why did UA dehub MIA?

The mid 2000s drawdown had nothing to do with the merger! It was before the merger. The merger made them bigger in MIA again.
