even if you are elite. WN still is the undisputed champion of nonstop frequency between CA cities, and still wins on number of nonstop destinations out of many of the CA airports.

I usually choose AS on routes where they directly compete with WN, but if WN is going to give me a nonstop with heaps of frequencies, it's hard to ignore them.
