United is severely gate constrained at LAX (thanks SMI/J) so until they have access to more gates, they are focusing on higher yielding routes.
Assuming they don’t completely lose their competitive position at LAX before they get more gates. They are becoming less and less relevant at LAX with these cuts in some of these markets. You can add LAX-PHL and I believe LAX-BWI to that list of markets they’ve exited as well.
