Haha; waited until midnight Calgary time to post the thread to make sure it was 'today', eh? But it's still 'tomorrow' in SAN for a little while.
In any case, hope this works out for WS. The success (and hopefully increase) of their Transborder flights will be the biggest key to their overall profitability this year, as well as their subsequent expansion.

WEstJet seems so far are interested in hitting up the routes that promote big with tourism and family leisure such as Theme parks, Ocean Liner Ports, beaches etc. That is how places like the US coastal destinations are on their radar.
It is possitlbe that many people may fly to SAN and then transfer to the cruiselines or just have fun for a weekend hitting up Seaworld.

WestJet's direct service is a boon. Don't think there isn't any traffic between the two cities and it's not all leisure either. The majority of people have only one convenient choice today - and it's on Alaska Airlines usually via SEA. With the direct service, I see fares dropping. And maybe a possibility of even AS offering a similar service seasonally.
