On the other hand you do have a lot of people and money at both ends and people who live in both areas do take getaway trips. Many probably do not like the I-15 crawl.
I don't know the PSP area that well so I don't know if the preferred route to Vegas by car is west into the SB/Riverside area then north on 15 OR using some of the desert back highways to 15. But it still must be roughly a 4 or 5 hour drive vs. a short flight.

My question is, will this put pressure on OO's flights, given that they operate them "at-risk" even though they are branded as United Express flights?

Iowaman, Biz market. These are 2 different markets so please don't compare. GEG-SEA, people connecting for business. It also runs as you said a few times a day so you can get home that night, as well as Q400's mixed in. Allegiant, twice weekly with a $29 fare between to leisure destinations, though PSP can get some high fares. But please come back to be with a better comparison then that Iowa.
