Why dont you go and tell that to the egghead planners at the airlines then? I would say Salt Lake City or YVR.

I don't know, but why don't they build a new terminal at OAK. The place is FedEx (which is big at night mostly) and Southwest. I think it could be good for Delta. There seems to be enough land around OAK (check out http://terraserver.microsoft.com/image.asp?S=12&T=1&X=710&Y=5219&Z=10&W=2) and you could do flights to Australia and Asia from there.

Something isn't quite adding up here. The load factors between PDX & Japan as well as the connecting flights to the continental US were running 90%-100% full on most flights. There has to be more to this story, either with the INS or Portland itself, possibly the same thing that is happening to DL in SLC.
