This is an interesting article showing that AS cut back 20% of schedule close-in. https://crankyflier.com/2020/06/30/alaska-pulls-back-in-july/ I assume that part of this is due to certain market not being open while other markets are showing declining demand due to recent COVID surges.

BTW, I just checked AS's online schedules and Sept 1 shows 2 daily flights from PAE to SAN, LAX and SJC! (Those are the only markets I checked.) I realize these schedules could change but a lot of work has already been done on the Sept 1 release by AS and the PAE flights are there!
