I think United would be the airline most likely to bring back CLD-LAX service, but I don't expect it to happen. San Diego County spent a lot money building a new terminal building and long-term parking lot (probably mostly FAA grant funded) shortly before United pulled out. It is a shame.

In one sense, United did not quit; whatever commuter airline flew the route for United could not keep it going because the turbo props were retired and also not enough pilots to staff other needed routes. United made money on Carlsbad. Fares started at $200 rt and the planes were full.
