Quoting AirCanada014 (Thread starter): Air Canada flight AC 1894 departs Edmonton at 08:20 arriving in Cancun at 14:45. Air Canada flight AC 1895 departs Cancun at 16:00, arriving back into Edmonton at 21:05. All flights are operated onboard the 207-seat Boeing 767
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.

Quoting SurferX (Reply 5): ^ 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.

PSP is a big destination for Albertans in general,AC and WJ offer it from YYC and WJ offers it from YEG both cities seem to fill the the flight regularly.AC is not the only carrier flying YEG-CUN,TS and 5G fly A330's and 757's on that route 4 times per week.
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!
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!"
