DL dropped SFO/SJC-LAX?

I could have sworn that DL used to fly SFO-LAX. When did this route get dropped?

It was a code share with Express Jet; thaht hasn't been around for a long time now. They do fly SFO-SLC-LAX and return for comparable prices.

Edit: Also Alaska now, apparently.

Yea I have been going Alaska SFO-LAX weekly and it is working out well. I hear (from FT) that they are going to be killing that route in the winter so it looks like I will route over SLC whenever I have time to burn other wise AA has great service to the Bay Area.. Last week DL were offering LAX-SFO over SLC for $117.00

I just booked SFO-SLC-LAX-SLC-SFO for tomorrow (need to be in Santa Monica for a meeting tomorrow afternoon). It's sort of crazy to fly to LA via Salt Lake... way out of the way, and makes a 1 hour flight a 4-5 hour affair Seems like if AS drops it, I'm going to be royally screwed. As it is, AS was way more expensive for tomorrow.

Sadly, first class appears to be full for 3 out of the 4 segments. I'm betting it's filled with FOs that got upgraded last night Wish they would hold a few seats out for battlefield upgrades...

Correct- sounds like sometime in Jan 2010 IIRC...

However, when things turn around, AS will probably look @ this route again.... just too much competition with too low of yields with all the airlines on it...
