Anybody know anything about the announced route (late 2007) from CAN-YVR?

Supposed to start in July 2009 but nothing officially announced?

In addition, it appears that most of these route announcements either have not started or will not start at all.

I remember this was quite a huge press release back in Sept 2007, but looks like it all pretty much fizzled away - not surprising though I might add!

Out of 2008 new routes, only 2 came to real - HU's PEK-SEA/TXL. Well, China Eastern already had operated daily PVG-LAX, so I don't know what that 2 weekly flight means. And China Southern couldn't make any of their 2008 plan of the article. So I doubt any of 2009 plan will be realized.

Yeah that's what I figured too.

Just a huge round of announcements with very little coming to fruition.

Not unexpected, who would have thought in September 2007 we would be dealing with what we are in January 2009!

The Bloomberg article states that Shanghai Airlines has plans to fly Shanghai-SEA...with what equipment?

I have been told that the supposed new CAN-YVR service has been put on hold and is unlikely to be re-considered until at least mid-2010 (or more likely 2011).

Regards.

Their 763ER would do the job OK. That's not to say I think it's going to happen anytime soon...

Yeah, I think that flash news article has pretty much fizzled and died. It looks like most of the those new routes announced are not happening. And those (very few, if not 2 only) that have started (Hainan to SEA and TXL for example) are not performing well. That article, now, appears just to be a lot of words....
