Colorado Springs is seasonal service as I recall. The Tulsa flights had not made it into the schedule download as of 9/19. Most likely easier to schedule flights with pax to ferry planes to LAX, than to try to funner any more thru DFW. Plus the expanding service at LAX will require more aircraft. Bet on modest growth at SJC.

I don't see any mention of Tulsa in the press release. I would be very surprised to see non-stop Tulsa-LAX service. In addition, I think AA had cut back the non-stop COS service from 4 flights/day to 2 flights/day. The COS-LAX service was inherited from Reno.
