American Airlines Hub Maps, 2002

Continuing with yesterday's dull, monochrome presentations from a US carrier, here we have a surprisingly unique and interesting graphical explanation of American Airlines's massive system. Shown here are non-stops from its hubs (or connecting complexes, as it calls them here) and its focus cities, such as Boston, which features year-round service to Gatwick and CDG. Note the service to Stockholm, which didn't last. American has yet to direct away from its cubicle-farm aesthetic, yet it must be given small credit for spatial arrangement with which it articulates the network.

Following posts will focus on each sub-networks web of destinations.
