I have not been able to find any reference, but the TA people at SFO said that some deal was made to move all ops back to SFO, the original plan was to move everything to OAK, but SFO supposedly struck some deal with them that was better by staying at SFO and closing OAK-SAL.

Can anyone verify if this is true or not?

I would have thought UA connections would mean SFO service would be retained, either complementing OAK or consolidated purely at SFO

TACA is so far covering SAL-OAK and back since November 17th 2007, when they started to split the services pointing to the Bay area by means of regular flights to both SFO and OAK. Checking some reliable sources, both TA SAL-SFO and TA SAL-OAK appear solidly loaded for the meanwhile.
TA is utilizing the red-eye pattern in these segments which means that they are presumably catering the O&D traffic in the Bay area, despite SFO is a base for UA. Moreover, TA and UA are sustaining commercial agreements in some selected routes.

Regards.

Will there ever be a market for TA on SAL/GUA-SJC?

Too bad about OAK but considering their close relationship with UA now, it makes since to have everything @ SFO. Will they add an additional flight as well?

So does SFO gain a flight or is it a loss for the whole bay area?

That's too bad. The service didn't last very long.

Well I guess its now for OAK

They lost the following in 2008

AA
CO
AQ
SX
TA
TZ

And the following reduced to only 1 city service in 2008

US
DL
UA

Is AS flipping some coin to drop either SJC or OAK?

My guess is that AS will drop SJC-PDX and OAK-PDX once the CRJ-700's are dropped.

Loads for services targeting to the Bay area during December 2007. Their results weren't precisely stellar as shown:

..........Segment.............Operations....Available sets...Passengers...Load factor
TA SAL-OAK, one-way........14.................2100................818..............39%
TA SAL-SFO, one-way.........46................8929................4834.............54%

Source: US DoT.

I noticed some weeks backward that Oakland didn't require a large amount of miles within the "online redemption" link and available onto TACA's website. It suggests that TA was getting troubles in order to load their planes into SAL-OAK and back.

Regards.
