That's the normal seasonal adjustment. Right now YYC-LHR is still the 333 but going to 77W on 1 June.

Too early to see what's up for next summer at this stage.

The AC 787 situation has reached a new level of embarrassment. Just to spice things up, they should cancel their max order and switch to neo. Can you imagine...

DL launching YYC-SEA

DL launching 2 daily E75 effective 3 November.

Fantastic new route.

I bet we see a WS codeshare slapped on that ASAP.

Glad to see improving links to SEA. Will help improve routing choices out of YYC up and down the west coast as well as on to Hawaii. Last winter I would have flown Alaska to Maui (much cheaper) if the connections had been more reasonable thru SEA.

Im guessing that is why AS increased YYC. This winter there will be 6 daily YYC-SEA, nice! That is very close to almost doubling in capacity for the winter.

Flying Hawaii anything but direct is insane. *kisses Westjet*

Love the expansion to Seattle though. Always looking for an excuse to hit the coast.

SEA is getting ugly!

A guy on Facebook has your first look at the insane ALSF-II approaching lights for 17L during a test a few nights ago. Same set at the other end. Looks like they might be on full strength here...

This is huge! Hope it doesn't affect loads on AS though, as I enjoy their Q-400 service with free booze and gate-check for carry-on bags.

That is unless your plane makes a stop in PDX or LAX...

^Nice, see what I mean?
More service to the Pacific Northwest that is so underrated.
I wish Portland could get some increases as well, if only more people get the importance or how influential PDX has been throughout Calgary's growth past present and possibly the future. It is a millennial generation paradise. Yuppie Central hahaha.

SEA is busier than YYZ and with those massive glitchy sales they had in recent weeks, I would go thru Seatac to connect onto onward asian flights.
YVR will still have a place in my heart but unless AC gets a bit more competitive, I won't mind hopping on some wifi Dash 8's..

Yeah I'm convinced that Delta is surely trying to have a go at AC in YVR; i.e., people flying YYC-YVR-xxx.

This might not be a full attack at AS.

I'd agree with both in this instance. DL is surely trying to build up its SEA hub in particular its Asian network from the city. AS is one target as DL has launched flights into several of it's ''bread and butter'' routes including SEA-GEG being announced today. With YVR seeing the recent influx of Asian flights that does play a part in DL's SEA traffic, what do you do?

What you see is what you get, including some incredible fares from SEA to Hong Kong, Seoul etc through Seattle.

Hopefully - with all the new infrastructure and new runway @ YYC - there should be a lot more over Pacific routes direct from here - yeah/no???
Maybe we will also see a lot more heavy jet traffic through here - Awesome!!!

I would imagine the new 120+ million pax domestic only airport planned for Beijing bodes well for AC acquiring a PEK slot for YYC. Or maybe there's a huge backlog for slots such that it wouldn't even help. I dunno... it wouldn't hurt. Maybe.
The truth is that there is no landing slot in PEK for AC to start YYC-PEK route. Beijing is going to construct a second yet larger airport in the southern part of the city, but the scheduled completion date is 2018.

The common sense is that until then, AC will not start YYC-PEK route, if ever conceived commercially viable.

The pictures are nice, but the "top 10 worldwide"? you are probably stuck in Calgary for decades and never flew out to see the world.

Top 100 is probably stretchable.

Well aren't you a bundle of joy. We'll patiently await the list of 99 terminals better than IFP.

So... what I just said?

I do believe you mean non-stop and not direct (which can include stops along the way), especially when traveling with kids.

Gotta give love to AC too, as they also operate the non-stop YYC-Hawaii flights in the winter months.

My wish is that when either airline starts getting their 737 MAX birds we get year round service to the islands (I'll take OGG over HNL though). Wouldn't have to be a daily flight over the summer but I think the demand would be there for at least 3-4x weekly.

Cargolux Increase?

Always hard to tell with cargo but it appears that Cargolux has added a 3rd YYC-LUX flight for the summer. This once operating Wednesday evening/Thursday morning.

You think to mention that because he just landed a few minutes ago?
