Airport with most Horizon flights and no AS service

What airport that is not served by Alaska mainline has the most QX daily departures?

I was thinking about the QX cuts and it occurred to me that it may be little old MFR (Medford, Oregon).

Until the recent cuts it was 11 daily QX departures, 0 AS.

Are there any other QX-only stations that have (had) that many flights?

Santa Rosa (STS) currently has 8, but it may have been more in the past.

EUG also has 8 departures now, but almost certainly had more before the current round of QX misery. Anyone know an easy way to look up historic timetables?

MFR might have more than EUG currently, since it has more connections to California on QX than EUG does. That also explains why UA has taken over the #1 spot there, but that's a rant best saved for another thread.

I found a page on flight and passenger numbers through the STS website (can't post URLs yet!!)

It looks like June and July are busiest for QX most years. QX flights peaked in July 2017 with 274 (avg of 9 per day).

Until fairly recently it would have been BOI. Boise gets, I believe, one mainline flight now.
Chugach is online now

But aren't a fair number of BOI flights by OO? Even before the QX meltdown?

BOI comes in at 18 QX departures today according to FlightAware.

But ASA902 738 BOI-SEA disqualifies according to terms by OP (as Chugach suggests).

EUG had one additional PDX departure that was cut about a year ago, but one morning departure to either SEA or PDX is getting cancelled fairly regularly. MFR went to LAX & EUG to SJC so same number of California destinations, unless I'm missing something?

Great point - thanks for that. As luck would have it, we're both right! I was limiting my search to QX flights, not AS flights.

11 QX operated AS flights; AS8451, AS4737 & AS4504 (Compass E175); and AS4047 (SkyWest CRJ700)
