Will SEA become the 2nd airport after ORD to be a hub for 2 of the US3?

Thu Feb 13, 2020 4:59 pm

With the news of AA/AS expanding at SEA to counter DL, is SEA poised to be the 2nd US airport to be a hub for 2 of the US3 after ORD?

I’d say AA at BOS may be in the lead. Though, SEA-BLR/LHR is much more impactful than BOS-LHR and its domestic destinations.

LAX is a hub for three of the US3 and JFK and LGA are hubs for 2 of the US3 . . .

At risk of sounding like Bill Clinton, it depends what you mean by hub. If we are talking about 500 flight, majority connecting operations, no, we are not going to see another US airport with two of those (DEN is probably closest). As others have pointed out, there are already a number of airports with multiple smaller, more O&D-focused hubs.

I'm not sure what standards you have for a hub. JFK already has AA and DL. LAX already has all three.
