I have stated this before, I would think it would be JFK, YVR, or YYZ. All three airports have a large catchment areas that can supply demand and are business centers. Tough to take on the legacy carriers seeking business travel contracts with Fortune 500 companies when you have such limited service into the largest US market (NYC) using a few gates at LGA. WN serves the LA market with BUR, ONT, LGB, SNA, and LAX while NYC only has 1 airport served by WN.

For my vacation travel, I would hope IDA would be added. This would serve paxs who wish to go to Yellowstone in the summer and serve eastern idaho. SLC is a 200 mile car ride away.

Unfortunately not, JFK is not an options. Due to slot restrictions. DL, AA, B6 had a JFK hub. It won't be JFK. They won't return to EWR in the near future. They tried and it did not work. They pulling out of EWR completely.

Unfortunately not, they tried MEX and it did not work. They already pulling out all MEX completely! Due to slot controlled. The flight was departing at 5am and they landed in MEX late at night.

The MEX slot was terrible for connections. If they could get a better slot (or 2 or 5), MEX needs a shake up.
That said, MEX is likely a loser destination for a while, travel to large urban areas, even for tourism, isn't coming back for a while.

They have a big blind spot in Montana/Wyoming. BZN would seem like a good fit.

I flew BZN-SFO for 15k United points on short notice a few months ago. It's a great airport. Lodging on the north side of Yellowstone is cheaper than in Jackson. The best deal uses Choice points: https://www.flyertalk.com/hotel-revi...l-of-2020-3765

It doesn't quite seem to fit the WN mold, but I would love BZN personally. We've been talking about a Yellowstone / Glacier trip and the main thing that's held us back is that the travel to/from is arduous. Either roadtrip the whole thing, or buy expensive flights to somewhere not-that-close and still do a lot of driving.

While BZN would be a fantastic way to use United miles, the couple times I've looked in the past I haven't been able to find 4 together or even 2 and 2 on flights that aren't a whole day apart. (I lack high UA status.)
