WHAT? BA will no longer serve SAN after this year? That's too bad! I used to live in San Diego and looked forward to that 777 coming in a few times a week. Are the load factors really that low on the SAN-LGW runs?

I'm not sure the reason for stopping service, but in a forum here on A.net it was confirmed that BA won't serve SAN after something like October or around there Hopefully they won't be pulling out permanently....but maybe we'll see a new carrier here! (Doubtful, but I can hope cant I?)

Back to the original post, the map is wrong, Alaska does not serve SAN-YVR non-stop anymore. It used to serve it non-stop back in 1996, infact SAN was the first city Alaska flew from YVR (served twice daily). This was before the open skies agreement between Canada/U.S. and it was the only city it could be authorized to fly to from YVR. It was later amended so that it could make an inroute stop at LAX (YVR-LAX-SAN), which was Alaska's intent all along. By 1997 SAN was dropped altogether when open skies went into effect.

Apart from SAN-YVR, the map looks up-to-date (showing East Coast nonstops etc). I'm not sure it means anything, but maybe this means Alaska will relaunch SAN-YVR soon? I have a hard time believing Alaska has overlooked the removal of SAN-YVR on this map for 6 years now.
