What are the benifits of starting a hub?  It seems like your cost just double. I've heard that you get connecting pax but I've gotten those via an alliance. So what are the advantages of opening a hub?

It’s best if you open a hub and build a terminal as terminals helps to offset costs inflicted by hubs. Having a really big huh may be really useful, especially on big routes that have a lot of competition, where using connecting passengers is more profitable than trying to compete and reducing prices. Like routes that have prices reduced from $400 to just $80.
Having a hub also makes it easier for you to track your destinations and routes served by the hub, and also let’s people know which airports you are based in, where majority or most of your routes start.

Can possibly put off some potential new starters from trying to set up in the same airport as you...
