Quoting AirCanada014 (Thread starter):

Where does this 767 come from? Last I checked, the only 767 flight in Edmonton was the LHR flight, and there aren't enough hours in the day for it to operate down to CUN once a week.

There are large numbers of retirees from Alberta and British Columbia in PSP. I'm sure AC will do very well on this route!

^ Oh, I have no doubt! It's just weird to see a direct flight like that!

I guess that's why I don't work in route planning.

If you pair up city A: cold, grey windy Canadian town with city B: balmy, warm safe southern US or Mexican town, then you have a winning route. A gross oversimplification, but it's pretty much the recipe the pros use.



The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others.

 checkmark  Not weird at all. In the past many Canadian charters also such as Canada 3000 have similary operated the route.

Demand certainly exist.

Oh it's simple. See, just see where WS flies, wait a year or two for the market to build, and then add your own flight. Big grin

You can also add SAN and PHX to that list during the winter months, especially if they have extended family in those areas.

Oh yes! Flightaware in and around KSLC fills up with these charters going between places like YYC/YEG and PVR, MZT or SJD with many off on a holiday to the sun!  cool 
Many a DL Captain or 1st Officer has told be that when you see one of those charters at one of those three Mexican resort airports that "there will be some seriously partyin' Canucks on winter holiday!"  smirk
