I meant SLC-ANC...
I kind'a thought that.
But then I again ask, what would AS find in SLC-ANC service? Lots of local traffic? I doubt that. Lots of AS connectors such as I mentioned in an earlier post that would simply fly, say, SAN-SLC-ANC instead of SAN-SEA-ANC, accomplishing exactly what for the airline?
Or would you propose that lots of folks would fly AS ANC-SLC then switch to DL to fly elsewhere in the US? In the current climate between AS and DL, would either AS or DL want or even do that? Would it be worth it for pax to have to make an inter-line connection at SLC rather than flying DL the whole way? And besides, all that would do is take those pax off ANC-SEA-XXX or ANC-PDX-XXX for which they could possibly use AS on the entire trip - depending on their final destination.
Just like those (you?) proposing that AS turn SLC into a full-blown west-east hub. I just don't understand the thinking of why this would be good or even more important, possible, for AS to do. Please explain to me.
