If you are based in the bay area, it makes sense for you to stick with UA/WN even if you dislike them as a company, AS will take you to Seattle and LAX, great but beyond that it won't work. At some point AS has to decide if they are just content going N-S, or if they have to make some play to win people over by competing to a hub.
AS canít be everything to everyone, particularly in the Bay Area. There are a lot of people who donít have regular travel to Denver. For those that do, AS/VX would always struggle to compete against UA with a superior schedule.
