hi Guys,

I'd like to go to YHZ in June this year and I was thinking about the best connections/ flights. AC is flying from LHR nonstop, but the fare is not too cheap. Does anybody know the loads for this flights? Is it usually full or willI be able to non- rev on that flight?
All flights from FRA are via YUL or YYZ or even EWR (CO).

Anybody has any ideas who is as well flying to YHZ?

Any feedback/ help is appreciated.

Thanks.

As per the airport's website (and wikipedia) AA operates from/to JFK.
More options are listed by Wikipedia, but should be verified (as always). If really operating, DL from BOS (or JFK) could be an alternative ...

EDIT: What about TS (Air Transat) from LGW, maybe preceeded by a EI flight from MUC (or similar) ?

Hiya, I could have sworn that TS (Air Transat) operates a FRA-YHZ flight in the summer...maybe that was a year or two ago... I remember seeing a flight that operated FRA-YHZ-YUL or YYZ. Don't remember too much now.

Check out Condor they now operate FRA-YHZ, it looks non stop as well! So this should be a lot easier for you!

According to Air Canada's website, the YHZ-LHR flight for April 25 is about 80% full so far, but you weren't kidding about expensive fares! It was way cheaper to connect through YYZ. Condor operates direct flights from FRA-YHZ from May 17 until October 26, which should be fine for a summer trip. Your only other options are Flyglobespan (Glasgow), Corsairfly (Paris-Orly) and Thomas-Cook (LGW) for European connections, or Delta, Continental, American, United, or Air Canada for North American connections. Either way, enjoy your trip! Halifax is a beautiful city and their airport is award-winning.

Not too bad, but I would need to fly to FRA then to JFK then to YHZ, 2 connections and I try to avoid a lot connections as I am trying to non- rev. But I will consider that, thanks.

Will check that. Both would be a good option as I only need to go to FRA.

80% makes it difficult to non- rev then.

I thought of non- reving to YYZ and then buy a ticket to YHZ which is pretty cheap as there are many flights.

Not too easy to get to these airports as there are not direct connections from HAM where I live.

I guess I'll do something like that: CO HAM-EWR and then to YHZ. Only one connection. but 8 hours in the CO 757?  crazy   Wink

Thanks for the input guys, I will check them all.

AirTransat isn't flying to YHZ anymore, according to their website. But their fares to Canada aren't bad, even from HAM.

Condor would be an option, but the wrong flight dates as it is not flown daily and I am not too flexible.

Tuesdays from LGW to YHZ on the A310; their website even has TCX flights on Thursdays on that route using B757. ..
This is for random dates end of June 2009.

But getting to LGW from HAM is a problem ...
Either another transfer (CPH, DUS, AMS - or MUC on EI ), or fly into LHR and use the (dreaded) Coach service between the two airports.

Yeah, I checked that, but doesn't fit as I am flying Saturday to Saturday.

Indeed, it is annoying.

@WILCO

Would you consider a transfer @ LHR ???

Air Canada has a daily non-stop LHR-YHZ with B 767-300 !

That way you can easily travel from HAM to LHR and connect to YHZ !
And as you´re travelling non-rev Air Canada is Star Alliance so i suspect that´s an advantage over flights with "enemy-alliances" (unless it´s always full...)

I know. I posted that flight in my first post that this is an option, but the fare is pretty high and I am not sure how high the loads usually are if I want to non- rev. But this is for sure a good option.

I can non- rev on a lot of airlines. Of course it is easier on Star Alliance partners.

Here is my advice to you Wilco. I would try and use the LHR-YHZ flight on AC. A few days before just ask on here for some load info as I am sure someone will be able to help you with the AC loads. If the flight is open, try that. If not you will have many options on AC & LH. FRA-YUL/YYZ and then a YUL/YYZ-YHZ flight would probably work out the best for you. You could also try FRA-YYC-YHZ but I don't know about the connection times, and the flight does go out of your way a little bit.

I would stick to LH or AC as your priority would be better then going on some other airlines.

If you have any further questions PM!



Keep the shinny side up!

Then I'd prefer CO from HAM-EWR-YHZ. The less connections the better.

Quoting ZBBYLW (Reply 11):

This is my first choice as well. But this flight could be really full, so I need several tickets to connect.
And the flight leaves at 10:05am from LHR, so I need to take the first flight from HAM. Then I land at 8am in LHR. Is 2 hours enough to connect?

I thought LH flights were never late?  Wink so you should be fine

The LH flight leaves 15 minutes later than the BA flight to LHR, so I'd take the BA flight  Smile

I think LHR-YHZ on AC is by far the best option. AC has so many other flights from LHR that if you don't get on the nonstop, there are still 4 other connections that will get you to YHZ the same day. And fortunately the LHR-YHZ nonstop leaves first at 10.05.

If it's full, it's unlikely all the following flights are going to be completely full, and they all make fairly good connections to nonstop flights to YHZ. You may need backup tickets for the other routings which I assume you could refund if unused.

12.35 to YYZ (A330-300), 2 hr. connection to E-190 to YHZ
13.00 to YOW (767-300ER), 2 hr. 40 min. connection to E-190 to YHZ.
15.00 to YYZ (777-300ER), 90 min. connection to 767-300 to YHZ.
15.30 to YUL (A330-300), 2 hr. connection to CRJ to YHZ.

And even if the YYZ/YUL/YOW-YHZ connecting flights above were full, there are still 2 later YYZ-YHZ flights the same day and 1 later flight from both YUL and YOW.

Odds are probably good that you'd get on the nonstop LHR-YHZ as June is a little before the busiest part of the peak season.
