American has had a long presence in the region, and early in the 21st century was the only legacy carrier with non-stop service from all three Bay Area airports (SFO, OAK, SJC) to New York and Boston. Like its peers, the fuel and economic problems of 2007-08 saw AA drawing down its presence at both OAK and SJC and consolidating at SFO.

It includes a table of AA's consistent SF cutbacks through the years. The reason why I bring this up is that we haven't seen any other airline partake in nearly as many route cancellations and capacity cuts in the San Francisco Bay Area as American. We are losing our decades-old route to Honolulu in the fall. This after last year, an AA spokesman told the San Francisco Chronicle that SFO-HNL was a "huge market."
