Hey!

Merry Christmas. I have e-mailed them and they said that they won't be flying to the USA anytime soon. I hope they come to DTW, we need some Canadian airlines other than NWA!

I don't think that Westjet will be flying into the USA for another few years. It seems like they want to expand gradually, and just begin with one or two eastern cities in Canada (probably Toronto-Pearson or Hamilton, or Montreal). I think that they might go into Halifax or some other Maritime provinces before they fly to the US. If they would fly to the US, do you think they would fly from the west or the east? I would think that they might fly from Vancouver to Seattle or maybe Los Angeles, but I wouldn't see that happening for a few years. I'd like to see them flying from Toronto to New York if they do decide to fly to the US. Right now, I'm really happy with their decision to move into the east.

WJ doesn't have the aircraft to fly to the USA. It's expansions to eastern Canada and within the west will keep it very busy. DTW won't be a destination, either, although WJ did say they had some interest in flying into Windsor, which is just a quick drive across to border from you. And NW isn't a Canadian airline, although I know you mean an airline flying to Canada.

Yes, you're right about Westjet flying from YVR and YYC to LAS. I was trying to say that they wouldn't have any future plans about flying to the USA. I think that your YWG-ORG plan might work. Air Canada only has two flights to Chicago from Winnipeg using 319's, and if Westjet decides to have two flights daily using 737's, it might turn out to be a good route. Is it true that Westjet is planning on getting more aircraft? I have heard a few rumours, but I don't know if it is true.

Yes , West Jet is getting 5 more aircraft in the new year. 732's I'm assuming. Does anyone know where they are getting them from?

WestJet has announced that it will acquire 5 more aircraft next year. As far as WJ going to ORD, I don't think so. If they fly to Chicago, they would use a lower cost, alternate airport that isn't so busy. I believe Southwest uses Chicago Midway, maybe they'd fly there and to allow passengers to interline? However, I don't think WJ will be too interested in going into the US market too soon with an expansion to eastern Canada underway.

It seems that LAS is a good place for WJ to start. I am hearing that their flights are full. Is WJ getting CP 737-200? Let me know on this one. Also maybe to MDW or MSP might work as well. I am thinking of YVR-LAX. I can see that working

I don't know if WJ would get the CP 732's. AC was hoping to use them in the discount airline I think. Maybe they are coming from a carrier in the states. Who knows, they might be 733's.

Hi-

Yah, of course I know NWA is not a Canadian airline, I meant airline flying to Canada from DTW. It doesn't make since to fly to DTW, you're right.

I can see NWA flying into Canada from DTW. I think WJ will start into the USA after they go to eastren Canada. Is the flight to LAS a charter or a actual flight?

DTW doesn't make sense for WJ because if they wanted to attract passengers from the Canadian side of the border, those passengers would have to drive across the US border, clear customs, fly from DTW and clear Canada Customs at whichever airport they fly to. They are better off flying into Windsor, or at least starting with Windsor before DTW in order to serve domestic passengers. Windsor has some potential to attract Detroit passengers, DTW won't attract Windsor passengers.

I bet it will be at least 2 or 3 years before WJ goes into the USA, probably longer. They have already said the western Canada market has potential for them to have up to 30 aircraft, and the east represents even more potential than that. They have some major growth from 14 aircraft before they will reach the point they want to fly into the USA.

Yeah you are right. I could see that happening. WJ should keep flying to LAS. It looks like its a sucessful route. I am wondering if YYC-LAS works. It looks like it.

WestJet flying to the USA? Cool, I hope this will happen. This means more flights to the States for cities like Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg and maybe Thunder Bay. This is good news but I think the airline will expand to eastern cities like Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa before going south.

WestJet will most probably fly to cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, Las Vegas and maybe Seattle and Denver. This is not for sure but these are cities that I think it should fly to.

I think they will start the flights to the States in 2001 re 2002. They will start the eastern Canada flights in the year 2000. Well, if WestJet does what Southwest does, wich is go to the least known airport, then, WestJet will probably to Midway airport.

Well, I think your right. I doubt the airline is going to London or Windsor. Going to those small cities is wierd.

WJ thrives in alternate airports. They are lower cost, and quicker turnaround times. Look at Abbotsford for example-they are the only airline in there.

I don't think WJ will fly to either YYZ or YUL. It may look at alternate airports such as Hamilton (YHM) instead of YYZ, and Mirabel (YMX) instead of YUL. That is the whole point of discount carriers. I also think WJ would have a major competitive advantage if it flew 737's to London or Windsor and flew directly westbound. It may not be a big market, but it would be a market WJ could grow in, and be very competitive in.


25 Kohflot : Personally, I think it'd be most logical for WestJet and Southwest to form some sort of relationship rather than WestJet starting service to a ton of
26 Jets : I still think it's wierd that WestJet might fly to smaller cities than bigger ones, they just won't make as much money if they went to Montreal or Tor
27 Ywg777 : Thats not a bad idea. Where are Southwests hub located in the UAS? All is what WJ needs to do is fly into 1 of them and bring pax up to Canada through
28 Jets : Well, if i am not mistaken, I think Southwest and WestJet are some sort of partners.
29 Ywg777 : Can you check this out to be sure. Some how I don't think so. You might be right though
