Re: OAG Changes 5/21/2017:AA Drops LGA-MCI, B6 Drops LAS-SFO, DL Drops SLC-MIA

Re B6 dropping LAS-SFO - This route never made sense given neither is a B6 focus city, and B6 is very limited in gate space at SFO. With just 2 gates, B6 turns 6x to JFK, 3x to BOS (soon to be 4x), 2x to FLL, and 5x to LGB. Dropping the 2x to LAS gives B6 some breathing room, which could be especial...
