Why isn't California High Speed Rail attractive?

It seems to be difficult for California High Speed Rail to let American people understand how important high speed rail is for intercity transportation.
Even if people understand how short travel time becomes, they would think that it's not worthwhile investing.
Rather than that, people would worry about the decrease of passengers flying between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

So, high speed rail promoters should have insisted on how big economic impact would be after opening, and it's bigger than negative impact like less flights between the two cities.
