MEM and PIT are the best bets IMO. But I think AS will focus more on expanding their west coast point-to-point map before exploring new ground out east.

ALW is way too small of a market. QX has 3x daily and that I'm sure is enough. Plus, it's only a 45 minute drive from PSC, which has plenty of service.
RDM as well. Plenty of flights to SEA and PDX, as well as DEN and SLC.
