Yes, once Yellowstone and/or Long Valley erupts and buries Denver in 30 feet of volcanic ash.

SkyWest already has one. Unless you mean a MAJOR that is hiring?

Hopefully joking...
When Boston is a delta "hub" but not even a crew base, you think there is much hope for Boise?
Unless it's a ULCC doing their typical out and back day trip, I doubt it.
But SLC is just a jump-seat away....

Why is that?


Hubs/crew bases are predicated in frequency. Frequency is dictated by originating, terminating, and connecting traffic. When the frequency increases to the point where maintaining the fixed cost of a base administrative staff is less than the cost of laying crews over, then maybe. The real question is whatís the economic engine in Boise that will drive additional frequencies?

only way I see this is if non FFD carriers adopt the out station basing model like some regionals. OO and RAH have out station basing but I'm not sure that model would be viable at a legacy/LCC
