Does having a large Delta hub make SLC need less cargo ops?
|Quoting HPRamper (Reply 6):|
I just noticed that last part of the OP. COS still gets a Fedex 757. It actually continues on to GJT. Yep little GJT gets a 757 every day.
|Quoting PanHAM (Reply 4):|
Hubs need an industrial base to make sense, in additon hubs need to be located in the demographic center of a region. I don't think that SLC can meet both requirements. The US demographic centres are all located in the Mid West, MEM is kind of an exception for known reasons. Regional hubs in the West - OAK and ONT all are close or right in the middle of an industrial base. The sa,me goes for DFW and RFD.

Don't forget, SLC may have large DL Cargo ops, but that is because of the fact it's a hub. Cargo is moreso transferring between flights there than it is originating. On airlines, cargo moves through the system just like passengers do, usually transiting a hub on the way.
