Quoting Wedgetail737 (Reply 1): It's also noted on the Alaska Airlines website. Is this a seasonal discontinuation or a permanent discontinuation???
I think it's permanent. Although they claim later they might revisit the idea if the industry turns around. I just don't know if daily service with 70 seaters was ever going to be economical enough. What if they did a 4 times weekly service or something? Would that have worked?
I saw it onyourhorizon first but found the Prince George paper link instead.

Quoting Bartonsayswhat (Reply 6): has anyone else been on the Q-400 jet? i wanna ride on that. shame they only sent it to prince george
yeah, I noticed that too............gotta love reporters. But remember that the Q400 has "jet-like speed".
Never thought that YXS-SEA had a hope in hell, especially through the winter! Makes me hark back to the Jetsgo days, when one of their route picks was YYZ-GooseBay (or it might have been YUL-GooseBay). What were they thinking??
