United Airlines is considering a significant expansion of its Washington Dulles hub, says president Scott Kirby. The carrier is evaluating adding two additional flight banks – a period of time when a number of arriving and departing flights are bunched together – for a total of six at Dulles, he says at the Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit in Denver."Today we have a four-bank structure at Dulles," says Kirby. "The team is actually evaluating a six-bank structure that would create an opportunity to add more frequencies in markets."
