Back to the original post, the map is wrong, Alaska does not serve SAN
non-stop anymore. It used to serve it non-stop back in 1996, infact SAN
was the first city Alaska flew from YVR
(served twice daily). This was before the open skies agreement between Canada/U.S. and it was the only city it could be authorized to fly to from YVR
. It was later amended so that it could make an inroute stop at LAX
), which was Alaska's intent all along. By 1997 SAN
was dropped altogether when open skies went into effect.
