As it relates to flying on a U.S. flagged air carrier (revenue flight) into Canada or Mexico I was recently told a flight originating in any U.S. city cannot land in a second U.S. city before entering Canada or Mexico and then reenter a final U.S. city as a final destination.
If I understood correctly any flight can originate in the U.S. fly to either Canada or Mexico and then renter the U.S.
A stop in a second U.S. makes it a no-no.
An example of an approved flight might be ANC-YVR-SEA a non- approved flight would be ANC-JNU-YVR-SEA, JNU is Juneau, Alaska which does not populate on airliners.net Juneau is located between ANC and YVR. roughly 1.5 hours from each airport as a commercial jet flies.
If this is correct I suspect this would be a treaty issue. possibly under NAFTA . I found this interesting because the North American open skies agreements currently in place are as I understand being relaxed to allow additional flying between U.S. Mexico and Canada.
I researched this for about an hour and could not find anything substantial. I'd be much obliged if anybody in the know could expand on this.
Thanks In Advance
Man can be taken from Alaska. Alaska can never be taken from the man.

I've never heard anything about this, but I'm not sure why someone would need to fly ANC-JNU-YVR-SEA when they could just fly ANC-JNU-SEA, or ANC-JNU-YVR, and then continue the same plane to SEA under a different flight number.

Quoting GentFromAlaska (Thread starter): An example of an approved flight might be ANC-YVR-SEA a non- approved flight would be ANC-JNU-YVR-SEA, JNU is Juneau,
Makes no sense. The plane got to ANC somehow, most likely from another US city....call it XXX. So the plane in your example is not flying ANC-YVR-SEA, it is flying XXX-ANC-YVR-SEA, which by your logic would not be approved.

I think what the rule means is once a flight sets out on an international flight it needs to continue or go through the international processing again. For example if the routing was LAX-Toronto and the plane stopped in ORD for some reason the flight could not continue to Toronto until the international processing was re-done. Atleast that is the only way it would make sense to me I could be wrong. Correct me if I am wrong but aren't aircraft that are on international flights inspected before departure, and if the plane landed again it would need to be inspected again. I can't recall where I heard that but I think thats how it went, once again correct me if I am wrong.
