Well that didn't last long as many A.net members here correctly predicted.

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.

That's too bad. QX was on the road to flying to many unique destinations and YXS was one of them. Other "unique" QX destinations (IMHO) are STS, PRC, FLG, Kelowna and MMH.

If and when the industry does turn around, I hope QX will find some more unique growth.

 checkmark  QX does indeed operate to some great and unique destinations. It's refreshing to see something different every once in awhile.

Sad to see, but hopefully they'll turn this loss into something positive for the company.

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??

I would be interested in finding out how their SEA-YKA flights are doing. I know the YLW ones are doing quite well, but I never saw quite the potential in YKA.



Keep the shinny side up!

QX also discontinued seasonal service to YKA in earlier service cut announcements.
