That's certainly not true. The Atlanta hub had been developed by Delta (and Eastern) prior to '78. There were hubs all over the country - ORD, MSP, DTW, CLE, DCA, JFK, DEN.etc .. plus BN hubbed at DAL and later DFW (I forget when DFW opened). Local service carriers like Frontier had Denver, Ozark had St Louis, North Central had MSP, DTW. Allegheny had PIT, PHL.
Deregulation increased volume at hubs - but there were certainly hubs prior to '78.
At LAX Western and Continental were based there - and both had significant operations. American and United have always had signification operations there as well.
