The difference between those spots are just a few percentage points, though; last I saw, AA was #1 with 22% of the market, and the #2 spot was at around 19%. Those numbers may have changed however.
Through October, LAWA says:
I need to clarify, when I state UA was dominant I am speaking of history. Back in the 80s and 90s when UA was the dominant carrier at LAX and SEA too. Too me its odd seeing a carrier that dominated for so long now relegated to #3 at LAX.

It's not 2010 - DL arrived and is now a major competitor with both domestic and international options. I'm just not sure how much longer AS can hold onto their customer base in Seattle by simply adding more flights to LAX and Hawaii. AS flyers don't want to feel second tier by scrambling on a partner airline. And that's just Seattle. There's also Portland (where only DL flies to Asia and Europe), and the Bay Area etc. Etc etc.
