That is because they dont want to waste $ to put on in a hotel or buy us a new ticket. In this case I doubt if LC has any responsibility if you miss the flight.
It's the passenger's responsibility to make sure he/she arrives at the gate on time, or at the other airport if it means switching between Heathrow and Luton / Stansted. Usually I'd land in London one day and fly out the next, especially since the savings could be quite significant. At the end of the day, price can really swing people's preferences.

Or even the traditional carriers, I don't think they need to be so nice. For example, if I take AC to Heathrow and transfer to BA out of Gatwick, since they're not in the same alliance, I have my doubts over whether BA will be so nice to me for missing my flight.

Lucky. I'm looking forward to see them. I can't wait for Etihad to fly their A380 to Toronto.

I know, im starting to doubt the info posted on the previous pages.

This would be a huge move, and neither EgyptAir or any other website or airline news portal has reported this :S

That is moreover a seasonal route. AC's B767-3XM is more than a decent plane for that route. Also many nerds on airliners think thAT AC has the best 767. Flat bed seat in the front and what not. PTV in coach and so on.

Yeah, I also took a look at fares for your homeland for the early summer 2010, AF offers deals as low as $1300 inc tax. Just to get some idea.

EgyptAir To Add Toronto Nonstop To North American Network


Aviation Daily Dec 14 , 2009 , p. 11
Darren Shannon

EgyptAir is planning to launch a year-round nonstop service from its Cairo hub to Toronto in October 2010, a move that will put the airline in competition with Dubai’s Emirates. The carrier, which will also retain its current seasonal schedule to Montreal, is also hoping that bilateral air transport negotiations between Canada and Egypt will produce an Open-Skies accord before the launch. Informal talks have already started, and should progress to formal negotiations by March, according to EgyptAir.

Such a bilateral agreement would give the airline leverage against Emirates, which is limited under a current bilateral to three weekly flights into Toronto.

EgyptAir will serve the Toronto route with two-class configured Airbus A330-300s, a fleet type that will be introduced in August.
Well, guys, if you carefully read the news release that I posted, you will see that until bilateral discussions are finalized, in March, nothing can be announced...until the current bilateral is updated, which has restricted them to Montreal for the last 25 years, nothing will happen....for MS to make a press release the way they did, the initial talks must have been been positive, but in international aviation, everything is tightly regulated, and nothing happens until the paperwork is taken care of.....so we will have to wait for March, at the earliest...it could be June before we know for sure...

Well EgyptAir starts in October, if it does start, so thats not an option if you're travelling this summer.

Im travelling the same route this summer, im probably gonna go for Air Canada to LHR, and then EgyptAir or BMI to Cairo. Or Im just gonna take Lufthansa to Frankfurt, and same to Cairo. Or maybe even Austrian, or Swiss.

I need to fly Star Alliance for my miles, so it all depends who will give me the cheaper fare.

Sounds good. I wish AC placed their B767XM onto some routes to my homeland. It would be nice experience for sure. I am sure it would never happen. The loads in the front cabin would be super low. Even the coach class would be a gamble I think. Many from the Balkans are very stingy. They would switch over even for a 50 bucks cheaper airfare. Even if that includes waiting 2-3 hours for a connection, risking to get your luggage lost. It would be suspended in matter of months heh. I can picture it. This is what happen with Delta upon setting up Bucharest expansion. IMHO crazy just to picture that Athens has no nonstop service all year around. So the whole Balkans.

EVA Air press release....

Flights begin March 29, 2010
EVA to start passenger service, Taipei - Toronto

Monday, January 04, 2010

EVA Air will start direct passenger flights between Taipei, Taiwan and Toronto, Canada on Monday, March 29, 2010. For countless residents of Toronto and Eastern Canada who fly back and forth to Asia for family, business and leisure, the new service will shave hours off of travel time and make trip planning significantly more convenient. EVA is introducing the service with three flights a week.

EVA flight BR36 will depart Taoyuan International Airport at 18:45 (6:45 pm) on Monday, Thursday and Saturday and arrive at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport at 20:55 (8:55 pm) the same day. Return flight BR35 will leave Toronto later that night at 23:40 (11:40 pm) and land in Taoyuan at 05:45 (5:45 am) on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Asia-bound flights will make a brief fuel stop in Anchorage, AK. Approximate flight time from Taoyuan to Toronto is 14 hours and 10 minutes, Toronto to Anchorage, six hours and 30 minutes, and Anchorage to Taipei, 10 hours and 10 minutes. The airline is serving the route with one of its new, technically advanced Boeing 777-300ERs.

Canada has proven to be an inviting market for EVA. The airline launched flights to Vancouver in June 1999 and serves that route with its own flights and a code-sharing alliance with Air Canada. Addition of the Toronto gateway will give EVA passengers the convenience of six flights a week from two of Canada’s major metropolitan regions and the option of departing from one city and returning to the other. Toronto’s status as a global city and financial powerhouse make it a strong addition to EVA’s well-developed network, connecting through Taipei to leading business and leisure destinations throughout Asia and worldwide.

On EVA's far-reaching system, passengers from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) will be able to fly to Taipei and make easy, same-day onward connections to Manila, Phnom Penh, Saigon, Bangkok and 16 destinations in China. Travelers headed to North America will find Taipei to be a welcoming hub for flights to Toronto where they can continue on to Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec and Halifax in minimal transit time.

In addition to competitive fares and service options that appeal to a broad range of business travelers, EVA is also working with travel agents to create tour packages that complement current products offered in Canada and America. The new packages will be designed so that passengers can enjoy Ontario’s beauty and majesty as well as the global sophistication of its international cities.
