I know United had San Francisco-Oakland service, sometimes continuing to Denver.

Orange County-Los Angeles service also existed.

How about JFK-Laguardia? Or Dulles-Washington National?
I don't think anyone else has chimed in on the east coast routes yet unless I missed it.

Not sure about JFK-LGA. I can't think of any carriers on that route except maybe scheduled helicopter service back in the days.

As far as IAD-DCA....

Multiple airlines have done this one over the years....

Western did it in the early 80s as part of a DCA-IAD-SLC route.

(Western's 1984 route map showing the route:

American did DCA-IAD-DFW several times daily in the early and mid-80s before the DCA perimiter rule was expanded several hundred miles to allow nonstops to DFW.

Also, Braniff (II) did the DCA-IAD-DFW thing when they began flying again in the mid-80s.
