Airlines long have associated specific flight numbers with special routes. Yes, flight 1 was usually the airline's "most important" flight, but this certainly is not universal.

I can't speak for AS, but on "another airline" (which happens to be mentioned in your signature) it would depend on who's doing the flying and what for. Sometimes the corporate executives are in...

Probably not US government approval so much as local. Governments still own all the airports, they'll have all kinds of environmental boards to please in California, etc.

Most of the airports on the list are capable of handling 737s (most have been served by 737s or DC-9s in the past), so technically there wouldn't be any issues. Economically, FAT and SBA would be...
