YVR was the first airport in Canada to be A380-ready.

If CX buys the A380, I imagine they'd use it on YVR-HKG.

What does SQ fly into YVR now? If it's a 744, the A380 could be an eventual possibility/probability.

Is LH still flying to YVR? I lived there until last year and I remember LH used A346s and 744s so maybe in the future they could bring the A380 Big grin

SQ now fly a B777-200ER into YVR 3x weekly. I've been on that flight and loads were good, but I don't see it as a candidate for upgauging to a B777-300ER let alone a WhaleJet. If SQ operate the WhaleJet to north america, NRT-LAX seems more likely.

YVR is right now on a big international terminal expantion. It will feature a large aquarium and nine more gates. Two gates D64 and D65 will be 380 capable. Four of the new gates will have double airbridge.

Here's a good question - what Asian airline flies the most 744s to YVR? If they are ordering the A380, it's a safe bet you'll see it at YVR.....

Remember, SQ would love to fly more to YVR and YYZ as well....But there's no bilateral agreement between Canada and Singapore currently....Until that is all cleared up, you won't see SQ fly more than the 3x weekly into YVR

That would be JL and they are unlikely to order to the WhaleJet.

No, I am pretty sure that is YUL. YVR doesn't see any AF or any French service (except for occasional Zoom charters).

Sorry, I don't want to sound like an a$$hole but KE doesn't fly their B744 into YVR anymore. LH might be a possible candidate because they say that their cargo loads into YVR are good, if the A380 can carry a lot more cargo than the A346

Yes, they still have their daily LH492/493 between FRA-YVR.

That's a shame becasue it can't. It has less volume than the A346. I'm sure an A380 will end up there at some point so keep your eye out on a.net for an unscheduled nip down to the airport. But I doubt there will be a regular schedule for at least the first 5 years.

That seems unlikely for two reasons:
1) SQ are not expected to order additional A340-500s as SIN-LAX and SIN-EWR nonstops are reportedly not profitable at current fuel prices, and
2) Much of SQ's YVR traffic is between ICN and YVR rather than between SIN and YVR.

Yes AF's A380 was assigned to YUL the last time I checked with my friends from AF at CDG....

That may be, but according to an article in The Province a couple of weeks ago, SQ stated that they are pushing for a change in Canada's bi-latteral agreement with Singapore as SQ would like to start non-stop service between SIN and YVR with the A345 as early as next year.

Interesting. I know SQ would like for Singapore and Canada to conclude a bilateral. To start A340-500 service to YVR would require either acquiring more ULH aircraft or giving up nonstop service to LAX or EWR.

Thats what was printed. And with SQ bypassing ICN, perhaps KE will up capacity to YVR as well. Wait and see what happens.

25 BA84 : Zoom has one flight a week to CDG, scheduled service, not charter. There are Corsair charters, but all tickets are sold in France.
26 DYK : In economy this is the case but SQ does very good on YVR-SIN for business class.
27 RJ111 : Could it be done with a 777 at a stretch?
28 Post contains links Robsawatsky : You can see a rendition of the two "big" gates at YVR here: http://www.yvr.ca/pdf/authority/Building_Gateway_Jan06.pdf
29 Zvezda : SIN-YVR is no problem for a B777-200ER, however, YVR-SIN would need to either go out very light or make a stop. Of course, the route is easy for a B7
30 MotorHussy : Well what's happening to AC's A345's? And being Star Alliance partners, wouldn't AC and SQ operate this as a codeshare (hypothetically speaking of co

32 RayChuang : I think the ONLY airline likely to fly the A388 to YVR is Cathay Pacific if CX does order the plane; it will be used on the non-stop route between HKG
33 Zvezda : Do LH even operate Jumbos to YVR? I wouldn't call YVR a likey WhaleJet destination even if CX were to order some, but if CX were to order more than a
34 MCIGuy : I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see them there for the Olympic Winter Games in 2010.
35 Zvezda : That's the most plausible idea I've seen yet in this thread. It's easy to imagine AF and LH running WhaleJets to YVR temporarily for the Olympics. EK
36 YVRlonghauler : They started sending daily A346s this summer. They were flying 744s before that.
37 Zvezda : Like most places, the trend is toward smaller airliners.
38 Don : Maybe it is for the "WHALE" jet.
39 Zvezda : I really hope no one tries to fly a WhaleJet into the aquarium at YVR.
