That's a lot of incremental seats to fill with no onward connectivity at the DAL end...
They started with Airbii because that is what VX used on LAX and SFO routes and added E175 to SEA, SAN and PDX, and later figured out where the demand is.

Upgrades on the DAL-SEA afternoon flight have been getting harder to come by recently. More elites are catching on to this option for Dallas.

WN is stand alone There was some discussion about WestJet and some LCC from Mexico IIRC, but to the best of my knowledge WN does not even interline and you cannot buy their tickets (or normally even find prices) on OTAs.
