Quoting RJNUT (Reply 7): Kansas CIty surprises MANY folks ,as relates to business links, as well as sophistication!
Yes, understand that Kansas City has attributes. However, San Diego has huge biotech, telecom, and defense industries along with the military presence. Yet, Air Canada seems to carry more cruise ship passengers and other low yielders than they do high yield business traffic. Too bad they can't seem to make this flight profitable.
Alaska Airlines seems to have minimal traffic at its 3 gates in San Diego. Seems Air Canada, United (AC's ground and customer service handler in SAN) and Alaska could work out a deal for better departure times out of SAN. UA's gates are busy when AC needs them, so why not ask Alaska?

Excellent news for my current home airport! I have not been able to take advantage of the MCI-YYZ flight yet, but have always hoped to...it was always much more expensive than I was willing to spend ($500 r/t as opposed to $200 connecting somewhere), but maybe I can use it to get over to Europe. Exciting!
And yes, Kansas City is a great place. I have been here for 5 1/2 years now, and while I still plan to head back to Namibia, I really do enjoy it here.

MCI-YYZ is a good route for Aeroplan availability too, in my experience. I fly once or twice a year from Toronto and never have a problem getting the 15K classic seats, even as late as 1 week out. Glad to see the loads are good enough to add a 2nd flight!
