We have a lot of initial planning for all sorts of expansions at YVR: terminal, air-side, runways, taxiways, fuel pipelines, parking structures, etc. My little traffic jam simply brought to mind the fact that I have never seen any planned expansions or configurations of the pick-up and drop-off components, or changes to the roadway approaches to the terminals. Surely this is an issue YVR is aware of.

I am certain as part of the design process they model traffic in and out of the terminal. The reason it does not get a lot of public attention probably has more to do with the fact it has not been to bad until now.

There are three levels "Departure", "Arrival" and the "Lower Level (when the bus and rental cars etc. go)". Sounds like it is the Arrival is where you were running to problems. Hopefully they can do something to that level. Given it is not at ground level it might make it hard.

It was jammed through both arrivals and departures, and to a lesser extent, entering the parkade. Of course they model traffic. But there are giant differences to the way cars can interface with the different options for terminal expansion. Some expansions come with increased roadway frontage, others don't while adding a lot more traffic to the frontage that exists. I can think of plenty of design options to increase usable road frontage. Just curious to see how much their thoughts on this have been pushed and anticipated with actual design solutions. YVR's road structure is currently pretty basic. It simply will not remain so forever.

Love all the Mexico City growth but I really wish someone like Volaris would start up Guadalajara or Monterrey.

During the winter seasion, YYZ-BOM is being switched from a 789 to a 77L. Would cargo be the reason, or could it be something else? I thought the route was only viable with the 787.

Halifax with a population of around 400,000…..certainly does have an good variety of summer transatlantic services:

Air Canada 767 daily to LHR (year ‘round but reduced frequency in winter)
WestJet 737 daily to GLA
Icelandair 757 now 4x weekly to KEF
Condor 767 4x weekly to FRA
Condor 767 1x weekly to MUC
ASL 737 1x weekly to DUB/CDG

per routesonline.com, Philippine Airlines will operate their YYZ flights nonstop, effective Dec 16...

Actual schedule based on the airline’s PDF schedule listing (16DEC17 – 10MAR18) as follow.

PR118 MNL1615 – 1755YYZ 773 357
PR118 MNL1620 – 1800YYZ 773 6

PR119 YYZ0015 – 0545+1MNL 773 x235

If those times hold for next summer, will be nice to see a daylight arrival.. :)

YYZ-HKG is being increased to 77W service and the 2 77L have to go somewhere long haul.

YYZ-JNB seems the most likely. YYZ is due for a major route announcement. YUL's happened two weeks ago, YVR's was last week. YYZ is next. This could be it.
Combined with a Rouge 3x weekly YUL-Europe route announcement. That 767 would come from the terminated YVR-LGW route. Just my opinion.

Started hearing rumors of a Canada-Ireland route being announced tomorrow.

Looks like YHM will be the eastern hub for Jetlines.

Canada Jetlines to Offer Low-Fare Air Service From Two Toronto Metropolitan Area Airports Commencing Summer 2018

Canada Jetlines Ltd. (TSX-V: JET) (the “Company” or “Jetlines”) is pleased to announce that it intends to offer ultra-low fare service from both John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport and Region of Waterloo International Airport, when it begins flight operations in Summer 2018.

Stan Gadek, CEO of Jetlines stated “the high demand for lower airfares in the Toronto Metropolitan Area has led to the decision to base our flying in this region. As a result, we are pleased to announce that we have entered into an agreement with the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport and are in active discussions with Region of Waterloo International Airport. The combined service area for these airports includes nearly four million people. This factored significantly in our decision to serve both airports.”

President & CEO for John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, Vijay Bathija, said “as Hamilton International continues to grow as a low-cost airport in the Toronto Metropolitan Area, the Airport is pleased that Jetlines has chosen Hamilton as its Eastern focus city providing further low-cost travel options for Hamilton and the region.”

General Manager for Region of Waterloo International Airport, Chris Wood, said “We look forward to continuing discussions with Jetlines as they plan the launch of a new ULCC to serve the very dynamic economy in the Waterloo Region.”

Jetlines plans to offer ultra-low fare service to the major markets in Canada and select destinations in the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean. Mr. Gadek added “Canadians are overpaying for air travel and we intend to change that. By offering customers the freedom to select the travel experience they want in addition to getting every day ultra-low fares, Jetlines will change the way that Canadians fly.”

And there just happens to be a Rouge 767 available 3 times per week.....

There's also the final Rouge 767 coming online in the spring - I don't think that's yet been allocated.

They plan to start operations June 1, 2018 with two 737-800NGs - in an all-coach 189 seat configuration - after 90 days they plan to add two more aircraft and expand to 14 more markets - including St. John’s, N.L.; Las Vegas, Nev.; and Orlando, Fla.

So they already gave up their original plan to start a hub at YVR :shrug:

===============

Other ULCC news today, Flair Airlines (formerly NewLeaf) announces today that they plan to start:

7x weekly YEG-YYZ
4x weekly YEG-YVR
3x weekly YEG-YLW

Effective Dec 15

http://globalnews.ca/news/3734355/fl...-transfer-hub/


Haven't checked it for a while, but seems like they removed the "NewLeaf" brand from the website completely?

Didn't know these guys were still around. I thought they were to be based in Winnipeg?

Good luck getting people from TO driving to Hamilton to save a hundred bucks.
