[PUBLIC] Sinatra in Advertising

So I've been flying a lot of Delta this week. Delta has been making a big push recently to hub out of New York City, and have been running a considerable advertising campaign for the fact that they fly to just about all of their international destinations from JFK, LGA, or EWR. Whether or not this policy move is ill-advised it up for debate, but their advertising slogan for their new hub made me smile:

New York: If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

Clever, but great- like /more/ airlines need to hub out of NYC. I mean, admittedly, non-stop flights from JFK to LAX would be great since there aren't any hubs in the middle, but....bleh. JFK's enough of a pit as it is. Never been to LGA, so I can't say, but my impressions (fleeting as they are) of JFK and EWR are distinctly meh.

since there aren't any hubs in the middle,

I suppose you can argue that 3 airlines is too many to hub out of a single airport, but I can't let this one get past me. There are, in fact, hubs in the middle of the country, and big ones too. The ones that immediately leap to mind at Chicago (United), Cincinnati (Delta), Denver (United), Dallas (American), and Phoenix (US Airways).

Well, yes- but I thought your post was about Delta trying to hub out of NYC instead of Cincinnati? Therefore, for Delta, no hubs in the middle.

Admittedly, my information is way, way out of date. I think the last time I flew, Northwest was still around and hubbing out of Detroit.

I also just don't like flying out of NYC in general. NYC is a destination for me, not a leaving point.
