Re: Effect of hub airports being for-profit

There may be some effect. I'm not qualified to say what that is, and it's doubtful anyone else here would be either.... ..but that said, it's not a primary one. First and foremost, the market will dictate an airline's desire to be at a given gateway. The best-run hub in the world with no demand, is...

Re: Unconfirmed: DL closing NRT. Suspends NRT-SIN, Announces ICN-MNL

Most of this is not surprising. NRT going away as a transfer hub was inevitable. I think NW even knew that before the merger and that's why they ordered the 787. I'll bet if NW were still around, you would still see NRT go away. Also, dropping SIN seems in line with DL's philosophy of relying on its...
