Didn't know about SFO going double daily for a period. That's great news -- that both routes are maturing. Given how limited UA's resources are at SFO, and how long the TPA flight is, I've always been somewhat worried that it wouldn't be strong enough to stick around.

The point about PDX's proximity to SEA is reminiscent of what folks said about TPA's relationship to MCO, which are much closer. Today TPA and MCO share T/A service on BA, LH, FI, WK, and DI.

If there is enough of a market in PDX, BA will chase it, regardless of SEA.
