PDX-SFO seems to make a lot more sense than PDX-RNO. No ULCC on PDX-SFO at the moment either. Might be some room for SY there.
Looks like $96.50 r/t is the best fare on SY, I'm paying $110 r/t on AS in the past month, both fares are all in. I get free carry on's with AS & that's all I need for three days, on SY I would pay more for that. I get a free seat on AS, one pays for that on SY. SY offers 2 x weekly flights in each direction, while AS has 7 x daily service. I get miles on AS & segments towards gold.
In my opinion SY should have connected TUS to PDX as a 2 x weekly flight, or maybe SAN, but they are going to get trounced PDX-SFO. I bet the abysmal pre-bookings for their RNO service, people don't go to Reno any longer from here. it used to be a well traveled route by a myriad of carriers, but QX has it covered. SFO was a very last minute thought & the destination choice shows.
