Last time I flew was on AC
Jazz and AC
Zip from Grande Prairie (YQU), AB
to Vancouver (YVR
via Edmonton (YEG
) on Dec 19, 2002 and returning the exact same way on the 22nd.
Jazz Dash 8-100 YQU-YEG
- 5-6 seats left.
Zip 737-200 YEG
- That flight was very full. Probably no more than 2-3 seats left open.
Zip 737-200 YVR
- Also quite full, too. I think there were no more than 4 seats left.
Jazz Dash 8-300 - 100% full. This flight was also going to Fort St. John, BC
, but most passengers were headed to Grande Prairie.
The thing about Zip's loads is that on my flights, the loads were probably more the exception rather than the rule, as Zip's loads are said to be quite bad compared to WestJet's! Also, this was just a few days before Christmas, obviously during a high passenger traffic period.
