It made sense for AS to drop the LGA/DCA flights from DAL and it'll be interesting to see if they try to hang on to what gates they have there. They don't have a goal of being a national carrier that goes everywhere. Their focus is to be the go-to airline to take travelers on the west coast to poin...
