Re: OAG Changes 6/2/2019:3M Drops DAB-FLL;AA Adds DCA-AGS/ECP;DL Adds LGB-LAS;ET Suspends Routes?;WN Update

Interesting that one PAE-LAX shifts to PHX. Are there any numbers to suggest the PAE-PHX is over performing or that PAE-LAX is under performing? Or as previously suggested this is only a temporary realignment to capture sun seekers in the fall.
