EAA has indicated that scheduled YEG-FRA flights will be announced.The route will be announced in the upcoming months for a spring/summer start.Apparently this is a much wanted route by the Capital region of Alberta and comes on the heels of AC adding new YEG-LHR flights.This was indicated in a EAA meeting, but when asked if this was rumored or if someone had committed to this route the latter was the response.The countdown has begun...And i am sure this thread will get very interesting.Also noticed AC's route map is showing YEG-FRA,could it be AC?


Guess what???I dont like you either...

It seems logic, AC an *A member that will fly to FRA the hub of LH another *A member.

I also hear that PK is going to be announcing 3x weekly service KHI-YEG non-stop with the 772LR...

Let's wait for the official announcement... speculation is just that.

This was discussed in previous threads. Since YYC closed down their main runway (18-36) for renovations, a lot of long-haul YYC-Europe runs where shipped through YEG, since YYC's second largest runway is only 8000ft long, and not enough for a B763 or A333 to depart at that altitude (YYC stands at 3,600ft ASL)



us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!

Great news, looking forward to taking this routing. LHR is great, but FRA is more important to business travellers to the continent from my standpoint. If Edmonton can grasp an Asian flight that would be amazing, truly amazing. I am going to keep that on the rumour bin for now.

The other rumour I keep hearing from within the *A is Mexican to YYC and YEG as reg Sked's starting in 07.

I have a hard times believing that. The only market that really does well with PK is NYC. YEG's a bit of a strech. However, I think YEG-FRA will do great!!!

I've always maintained that YOW was underserved and that they deserve a non-stop to FRA, but something tells me YEG will get there first!

This being said, i doubt it will happen in time for the summer season of 2007.

It's not. Nowhere did I slander YEG... I was poking fun at my pal 'wolsie' and his unofficial announcement...

Wolsingerjet,

You are the source of many interesting discusisons. I would be careful on this one, considering the already sizeable increase in Alberta-Europe supply next summer with new BA + new daily YEGLHR service.

Let's review this thread in a few months time.

I really don't see BA being an issue with YEG, there is no easy connection on to the BA flight. People either have to make connection via a non-oneworld partner (meaning having to check in again in YYC) or having to drive to YYC which isn't worth it. Right now try booking outside the UK and you are still routed via YYC/YUL/YYZ not LHR. I am one that is 99.9% sure this flight is on its way. YEG can handle it, plus YEG doesn't have the charter schdules like YYC so tourism and Business alike will maintain a new route.

This will never happen trust me...as it is PAK-CAN bilateral only permit 1000 seats a week to be sold which are all used up by PIA for their 3 weekly YYZ flights.

YEG has NEVER BEEN on PIA's radar planner so who ever told u that is talking nonsense.

The only correct piece of info concerning PKs North American expansion is that LAX is NEXT!

WOW!!!How is this turning into a PK thread?Read more carefully before posting!

BA no threat to YEG.BA is however a threat to AC and that is why we see AC jumping into the YEG market to stop potential connections to BA and capitalize on itself.We have also seen that BA has scaled back the YYC flights slightly from 5 a week to 4,a sign of demand not being as high as planned I would assume?Also lets not forget YEG can support and has supported multiple flights to Europe before,just because AC hasnt done this in recent times because of its YYC hub does not mean it will not happen again.You seem to forget that YEG doesnt see many flights to europe not because of demand but because we are close to the AC YYC hub and AC would be the primary carrier for such flights.Initial bookings for the new YEG-LHR flights are very strong and AC has said it plans more expansion into the Edmonton market,not my words but AC's.There infact was a press release on this and if I can find it,I will post it.

Behramjee, you're taking the PK thing too seriously here! Like Wolsingerjet said, read the whole thread before making comments like that. Jeez.

As for YEG-FRA, that's definitely becoming more and more believable as time goes on, what with Edmonton's strong economy and all. I suppose we'll see AC using the 767-300ER or A330 on YEG-FRA?

Not entirely true, AC can interline on BA. Happens more than you think. But of course, WS can't interline with anybody much to the shegrin of the kool-aid drinkers who act like WS is already in Oneworld and how they're going to hurt AC so much with their new buddy BA  Yeah sure

But with so many Aeroplan members in Canada as well as BA being only 4x weekly, they aren't that big of a threat.

well....haven't all we been waiting for the YEG-IAH annoucement???

when it's official, I will believe it!!!!

I had hoped for FRA rather than LHR myself. But the AC guys pulled LHR in response to BA's entry. And sure enough, BA downscaled right away! I like this tit for tat strategy. I think Alberta residents are going to benefit big time!

But Wolsie...I hope you are right on this one

It is true. AC and BA have reciprocating eticketing agreements, and can in fact thru check bags as long as the connecting flights are all on the same ticket. They are not able to issue Boarding Passes on one another, as they would rather you book through to your fdest with one or the other (providing they serve that market themselves or via codesharing).
