Very late to this party, but how can you not service DEN, a major growing tech city that is one of the closest cities to the West Coast and major ski destination, from more than one of your "focus" cities. AS doesn't even serve it from PDX, or SAN. I get most of their focus cities are somewhat hub-hub. But at what point did you expect to buy an airline with a presence at a major competitors hub and then not even make it reasonable for those customers to stay with AS if they would just gut their entire East-West destinations from that city, it doesn't make sense to feed everything through Seattle, if you now have some sort of focus in California, they should be trying to keep the VX faithful or even gain customers. But if you have to go to Seattle every time, or buy a AA codeshare out of LAX, just to get to Colorado, you won't have any frequent customers from those city bases. You'll be the premier North South West Coast transport.
