I guess upgauging would lower yields/cheap tickets, though I’m not so sure if that’s always in their best interest.

I keep coming to this thread looking for factual discussion related to the title, and I don't see it.

Anything else would require them to start up point to point flying (BOS, SJC, etc)

I do not see this affecting 2019 expansion which I think will be substantial.
