It seems that SSV/Sunquest has made some changes to their southern destinatios flights from YYZ and YQG. Starting with late December, SSV has been flying 3 weekly flights from Windsor (YQG), to Varadero (Thu), Cancun (Fri), and Puerto Plata (Tue). All flights originated in YYZ around 6:00 am, arrived in one of these destinations, then in YQG by the mid afternoon, and back south and up north to YYZ.
It seems that the Thursday flight to Varadero is now operated as YYZ-YQG-VRA-YQG-YYZ. SSV 510 leaves YYZ at 6:10, proceeds to YQG which it is scheduled to depart at 8:30, arrives VRA at 11:40. SSV511 departs at 12:40, arrives at YQG at 15:45, leaves at 16:35 and is supposed to arrive at YYZ at 18:05.
Now, I've got a couple of questions: Why are the YYZ-YQG (and YQG-YYZ) legs scheduled to be 1.5 hrs long??? The same flight takes only 1:05 on a Dash 8! Also, why exactly did Sunquest/SSV change their schedule? Did they not have enough pax to fill both the YQG-VRA and YYZ-VRA flights so they merged them together? Does SSV sell seats on the YYZ-YQG/YQG-YYZ flights?
And in addition, I was looking through the scheduled departures/arrivals on the SSV website, and it appears that SSV900 will be leaving YYZ tomorrow at 13:15 and arriving at YQG at 14:30. Does anyone know what the purpose of this flight is? There are two SSV A320 arrivals scheduled at YQG tomorrow at 14:30 (SSV900) and 14:45 (the regular flight from CUN), but only one departure appears to be scheduled (15:45 to CUN). So, where is SSV900 going to go? Is it going to be a regular?
BTW, if you were wondering, SSV900 really doesn't seem to be one of those double flights that appear regularly on SSV's website.
Any help is very appreciated!
