Visualizingthe data reveals that there are multiple phases of air traffic activity at RDU, corresponding to the transition from beingan American Airlines hub airport to being a non-hub airport serving a greater variety of airlines. The changing patternsinvolve the daily number of flights as well as the locations of the reciprocal flights flying in and out of RDU.
