I was looking at the A340-500 site on emirates.com site and I noticed that Vancouver is on there possible destination for the A340-500. I know before that happens they will start flights to JFK and SFO. It is possbile though they will start flights to YVR? Is there a market for them there?
I think if they do start YVR service they would do it for the Indian market also. There are many Indians in the Vancouver area that connect in Asia or Europe for flights to India. They would for sure get many passengers going to India also.

It is a planned route of the future and I would advise EK not to fly NONSTOP from DXB to YVR but rather fly DXB-DEL-YVR on an A 345 over the Pacific 3 times a week. There is enormous demand from YVR to India especially northern India via DEL airport connections!!!

I dont think they will get the rights to fly DEL to vancouver from India.unless and untill they hand over dawood
( Now Dawood is India's enemy No. 1 and most wanted) he shuttles betwen Pakistan & UAE a lot) he used to be based in Dubai earlier
EKs increase to india was a way of the India govt. to thank them after they handed over some of Dawoods men recently. Thats when EK was allowed to fly to Cochin & given additional frequencies to Hyderabad
