Re: Shortest lived hubs

In terms of shortest, I think Air LA and its mini-hub at Bakersfield (BFL) - yes, BFL - lasted less time than one could purchase tickets. But on one of their scheduled timetables, most of their flights connected at BFL.

Not bad for an airport that EVERYONE has abandoned at one time.
