Are there any rumours or yet about WS leasing something to allow the direct YYC and YEG flights to Hawaii again for the winter 2012 / 2013 season?
Last year they were booking flights before they announced the 757 charter - when I booked my flight it was actually saying B737.
If they are not looking to charter something, will they try the 738 with empty seats method they used at first on those routes.
Or, are they going to concede the direct flight market to AC? That would not seem logical in these two cities (more $ than time) and I can only guess I'm not the only one wants a direct flight, Perhaps they haven't been making $ using the chartered 757, so it's not worth doing?
Nothing on their website or in the schedules yet that I could find, and I haven't got an answer yet from them directly (which will likely be a generic comment about assessing options, etc., etc. I'll post it if I am wrong and they have a specific answer!).
Rumours, truths, comments, or speculations anyone?
