I was wondering if AC would consider code sharing with JU if they pull it off? Considering that LH and AC are in the same alliance, I am not too sure if they would code share.. I think LH group is very greedy in order to allow such a venture. They may pretend to be fair, but I am sure they will dump the airfares just like when Skyservice ventured in the Balkans...

I heard they are to be used for Alberta - Hawaii routes originally, but I have a feeling that they will be mostly based out of Calgary and maybe Vancouver so I don't see any new routes from the East Coast soon. I could however see perhaps a Calgary-Beijing or a couple of routes to Europe from YYC but I'm not sure which ones.

Nice seeing WS getting 767s, hope it takes a chip out of the AC market from Rouge

Very interesting development indeed. WestJet has an all narrow body fleet, and with the B767, it will embark on expanding its reach. It seems to me that the airline would like to compete against Air Canada (mainline and Rouge) and Air Transat so that it can have a share on the long-haul sector. By the way, how's the YYZ-DUB via YHX coming along on board the B737? Maybe WestJet can use the B767 to operate its service to Dublin to replace the current 1-stop service... perhaps it can also be used for its services to Hawaii, if not heavy cross-border services (e.g. YYZ-LAX, YVR-SFO, etc)

Indeed. I wonder what the seating confoguration for WS' B767s will be like, especially that it will be competing against Rouge...

Those are impressive numbers! If such numbers can be sustained then Toronto will definitely be one of the first A380 destinations for Etihad.

I think we will find more information on airliners.net as we speak. From what I can see, they look like they grew as a bigger airline. I do not think they are so eager to compete with Air Transat and AC rouge. That market is way saturated, unless they wonder out, and look into some new markets that can be explored.
Going back to your question on YYZ-DUB, I think they are just testing the waters. That route reminds me of JAT operating BEG-DXB with a classic 737. They sold the very last DC10 in 2005, so the classic 737 was a workhorse one of a kind haha.

On a side note, JU may make a comeback earlier than expected. Etihad CEO James Hogan wants JU to fast track on longhaul plans, and launch winter charters. Lets see what comes out of it, but the first A330 may pop up in BEG as early as the Fall of this year.

Perhaps Westjet could explore more transborder flights (between the US and Canada), especially mounting more flights to San Francisco since the market is there... that airline, though, is succeeding in Las Vegas, with up to like 10 destinations served by WS alone. Maybe opening a unique route to Mexico City from Calgary or Vancouver could help as well... if not San Francisco to Toronto.

And speaking of more flights, what happened to Porter Airlines' plan to expand Toronto Billy Bishop Airport so that it can mount flights there?

A unique aircraft... and this also operates to San Francisco as well (via Oakland):

SATA Internacional A310-300 (reg. CS-TGV) -- it serves the Azores Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean.

To tell you quite frankly, I did not venture much around the other airports near by, so I need to catch up with the news as well. I am looking to come on the island before the summer ends and take some pictures. It's been a month that I have not gone down to Toronto downtown core.

Btw I may be heading to LA in a month or two to see one of my friends from my childhood days. So if I push him to drive to San Francisco, I will buzz you so we can grab a beer if you like.

I often see that bird going right over my house. From what I have heard, the airline is financed from the local Azores government. Thumbs up to them!

And while you're in Downtown (I think it's good to use the TTC Subway to get there via York Mills Station), perhaps you can also check out how the ferries are doing, transiting employees, passengers, and visitors to Billy Bishop as well so that we can see if the ferry system still works... perhaps a few pics of the terminals as well (both on the island and the mainland) would work too.

LA in a month or two, then push your childhood friend to drive to San Francisco? That would be really splendid... Ask him sooner so that your likelihood of getting a yes could be larger. Of course, just let me know when so that I can arrange a visit with you, yet my schedule remains quite fluid to say the least. Perhaps you can also check out, when you visit the Bay Area, SFO, OAK, and SJC, if not the smaller airports here like Redwood City, Santa Rosa, Concord, etc. so that you can see the differences.

Aha... very interesting. That reminds me also of TACV (Cape Verde Airlines), which operates an all-Y B757 3x weekly to Boston.

Hahaha you have it all figured out for me. I can see you are a planner for sure.. Yeah York Mills station is the real deal for me because I love taking the TTC. A part from that, that station also has GO link where the intercity busses are based. I can get to Toronto Pearson by taking their coaches.

The trip to YTZ has been on my mind for a while. I found one girl that is willing to join me. We may bring a tent and get sexy inside cheers:

Indeed. I can figure those out pretty quickly by looking at the nearest subway or bus stop, then we're all good from there. No more fighting for congestion on any of the busy arterial roads or highways, no need to struggle for parking. As for that one girl, well, enjoy yourself!

Some news as to the expanded bilateral agreement between Canada and the Philippines, Cebu Pacific is now a designated carrier to fly to Canada, while PAL was allocated all the additional 7 weekly frequencies.

http://www.malaya.com.ph/business-ne...flights-canada

What can this mean for Canada? Can we expect daily YYZ service, or do you think these extra 7 frequencies will go to a potential MNL-YVR-JFK route that was mentioned? Either way good news for Canada and hopefully Toronto!

That is fairly huge news for the Filipino community when you factor in that they tend to fly CX or KE to MNL.

Not really new news, but looking more and more likely as a future route:

http://www.veooz.com/news/gHTdPa4.html

Also, found this study/report on YYZ's website. It's a long read but search through and you'll find some interesting stuff on the expected growth of the airport.
