I make regular use of the Browse Airports page when putting new aircraft in the air, and I would love to be able to see within the list of airports which ones are hubs in the alliance I'm in. Of course it's easy to just pull up the alliance map in a third tab, but I thought it'd be a very convenient feature. Just a highlighted row or bolded text would suffice I think.

Definitely an idea. It would be useful for there to be something like the number of airlines at an airport before you research it. I have too many times confused a 3 gate airport with no airlines for London Gatwick with 3 gates remaining. It should show the number of airlines as well. Yuxi, pls add dis,

Or, when you're searching for airports within n miles of say, KCLE, the daily demand is shown in the search results for each airport in relation to Hopkins (or your choice). Saves time and hassle of having to research each one....

This definitely seems as a good idea, as you could immediately see which airports are alliance hubs through the Browse Airports tab. This does seem like a simply feature, and it would certainly help alliance's grow large and become more powerful. Airlines could also earn extra profits through scheduling flights that go through one of their alliance's hubs. The only problem is, there are many airlines who pretty much mark every single airport in their home country as a hub, and a large number of those type of airlines would mean that a lot of airports could just pop up as hubs. Therefore, there may need to be some kind of function where the browsing airline knows which hub is domestic and which is an international hub with high passenger traffic and many airlines from the alliance use.
