If anyone is looking for a "cheap" (relative) way to fly YYJ-YVR over the summer, I took the short hop over on Air North on Monday for only $117. Granted, the schedule doesn't work for everyone (Mondays only?), but compared to WS/AC who wanted $250+ it was an easy decision. Also, Air North doesn't seem to raise their fare prices as you get closer to departure (unlike WS/AC), so it was perfect for a last minute booking. Here's what they were asking ~2 hrs prior to the flight.

Huh? There's pretty much unlimited connection options if you take the redeye.


If you don't mind travelling overnight for what used to be a same day trip.

I guess that's a matter of preferance. Getting up at 3am for the 6am flight was also pretty undesirable.

No AC Rouge Boeing 767 this summer, taken off the timetable and replaced with a much smaller Rouge A320 mid day flight but keeping the A321 for the red eye. ...

I think the 767-300 is operating for a few weeks in June, I’m booked on it in the middle of the month. But certainly a shorter period than previous years. I figure this has more to do with the MAX grounding and fleet constraints, with Rouge subbing on some mainline routes like YYC-YYZ with the 767.

Right, thank makes sense. The Max issue has thrown a kink into everyone’s fleets.

Delta seems to be struggling with their YYJ operation today.


The scheduled 2:01pm departure to Seattle has been delayed until 8:30am tomorrow.

Separately, the flight scheduled to arrive tonight at 11:48pm is now expected to arrive at 7:56am tomorrow.

Montreal-based Bombardier Inc. has signed a deal to sell its CRJ regional jet program to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd.

Under the deal, Mitsubishi will pay $550 million US in cash and assume about $200 million worth of debt and other liabilities related to the CRJ — an acronym for the Canadair Regional Jet.
