I just booked SJC-PHX for $118 on WN where UA was $325 SFO-PHX (I wouldn't even pay this difference for UA F over WN Y on a trip this short). UA was also double the cheapest (NW, CO, AA) when I recently looked for a SFO-SDF trip.

I assume UA is getting people to pay these higher fares, but the scary thing is how bad they seem to be doing from a financial perspective. If they can't make money at these fares, are they long for this world?
