Perhaps Air Transat will announce new flights to CDG, MAN and GLA?

Always a pleasure to add some humour!

C'mon guys I'm being serious, it's been 24 hours since the terminal opened. Where are the new flights? ;)

Here have a nice video from one of our local spotters, if you like planes his youtube channel is worth a subscription. He does good work:

National has suspended its direct flights to the Caribbean from St. John's. It was working in partnership with our provincial airline, hilariously called Provincial Airlines, and offered connections between PAL flights around Labrador and the island and the Caribbean.

They owed YYT around $190K so YYT seized one of their planes.

Trying to force payment before the service is cancelled?

SignalHillHiker Nov 1, 2016 4:38 PM

God only knows. These days, we're so developing world I wouldn't have been at all surprised to see it seized and turned into a welfare Air Force One for the government.

Pogey One!

No love from our hometown airline ;)

Not that unusual. The same thing happened with Zoom when it was about to go under. Normal thing when an airline does not pay its bill. The fuel company demands cash payment and the airport seizes the aircraft.

Similar thing happening off the west coast of BC just now with two cargo ships that have an owner that is bankrupt.

i flew on the bombardier CRJ705 from calgary to vancover the other day, what a horrible airplane, my window seat had no window, i don't think any of the windows lined up with any of the seats lol. the ceiling height is so low, you bump your head when you try to stand up and the overhead bins are pretty useless. Its not the worst but was a pretty poorly designed airplane

jmt18325 Nov 2, 2016 7:13 PM

That's funny, because other than the luggage bins being so small, I really like that plane personally.

The 2x2 seating is nice but I agree on the windows sitting so low and not lining up well with the seats. It's terrible for looking outside but inside is relatively comfortable.

DrNest Nov 2, 2016 8:50 PM

My thoughts too, I hate the discomfortable angle of the Windows to look out, particularly when on the ground, but otherwise it's ok for an hour or so flight. I once spent 3hrs in one, and was feeling cramped by the end, but never had a problem on the shorter hops.

Some further breakdown of the YVR September 2016 & Year to Date 2016 numbers. Considering how much of a monster 2015 was, posting double-digit year-over-year growth in pretty much every international category is impressive.

Total Passengers (Domestic, Transborder, and International) | September 2016 – 1,957,451 [up 12.2% from September 2015]
Total Passengers (Domestic, Transborder, and International) | Year to Date 2016 – 17,040,647 [up 9.2% from Year to Date 2015]

Domestic | September 2016 – 968,997 [up 8.9% from September 2015]
Domestic | Year to Date 2016 – 8,448,308 [up 7.5% from Year to Date 2015]

Total International (incl. Transborder) | September 2016 – 925,912 [up 16% from September 2015]
Total International (incl. Transborder) | Year to Date 2016 – 8,592,339 [up 10.8% from Year to Date 2015]

Transborder | September 2016 – 459,163 [up 13.2% from September 2015]
Transborder | Year to Date 2016 – 4,212,953 [up 6% from Year to Date 2015]

International – Asia Pacific | September 2016 – 311,307 [up 17.4% from September 2015]
International – Asia Pacific | Year to Date 2016 – 2,666,699 [up 14.5% from Year to Date 2015]

International – Europe | September 2016 – 147,931 [up 23.9% from September 2015]
International – Europe | Year to Date 2016 – 1,058,083 [up 18.2% from Year to Date 2015]

[edit: I skipped Miscellaneous International, so the numbers of Transborder, Asia, and Europe do not add up to the Total International.]
