06AUG21 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: Long Live The Hub & Spoke @ Delta Hub Airports


Despite the shift away from the famous hub and spoke system in aviation, some airlines still operate the system to great effect. From Emirates to SAS and beyond, the full-service carriers still utilise the system frequently. Delta, one of the major US carriers, also operates a model with several large hubs around the USA.

This week’s FNF will be a festival of all things hub and spoke in the USA, with Delta hub airports open alongside several other large airports. All of these airports have A333 service with Delta, either as a hub location or as a destination from a hub.

IFATC will open these airports from 0600Z on Friday to 0600Z on Saturday, and you can use any of our established routes during the event!

What was the first slogan for Delta in 1929?

  • The Airline Run by Professionals
  • Ready When You Are
  • Hospitality and Service from the Heart
  • Speed, Comfort and Safety
