Huh? Where would you even come up with such a low number.

Driving distance is considerably further, flying...not so much.
Why would you quote me out of context and leave off the part where I said exactly that?
“Even if you’re looking at only the flying distance in miles it still wouldn’t *require* mainline. UA flys MSN-SFO on the E75, which is longer than BOS-SAT. DL most definitely wouldn’t have to use mainline, though as I mentioned earlier they might prefer to.”
I wouldn't say out of context, as you did tell the other user they were using a wrong distance. Really, no one is wrong here, it's just that airlines don't care about the driving distance
I won't go into the regional vs mainline argument because I know very little about how those decisions are made.
