Re: DL YVR - SEA runs

I'll look into this when I'm back at a proper computer, but are any of the mainline AS/DL runs on SEA-YVR that are continuations of XXX-SEA flights? LAX, SFO and PHX come to mind as possibilities, but it wouldn't surprise me if the late flights are mainline just for the sake having one less airplan...

It is also only about 100 miles from Bakersfield to BUR, 115 miles Bakersfield to LAX. BFL has a lot of competition within a 90 minute to 2 hour drive.
