We need to know if Southwest Airlines use the word "Hub" instead of "Focus Cities". Need to settle a dispute at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport....IP continues to add Southwest as a hub to the airport's infobox. A discussion was started there....please add your thoughts to that page and here. Comments appreciated. Thanks!
As listed at the top box of the article, there are focus cities only. A clear example that there is no hub operation, is that even for two cities with nonstop service, sometimes a flight (of the same number) will stop at one or two cities in between. For example, at focus city-Oakland yesterday, there was one that went from there to Seattle (regular nonstop) then to resumes Spokane, before getting to Salt Lake City--the latter being another nonstop city for OAK. Neither SEA or SLC are focus cities, as of now, further illustrating the airline's commitment of point-to-point service. Even to get to Las Vegas--the busiest SWA city in the country sometimes involves a one-stop in Reno, when leaving OAK.
