That service was so short lived. What other airline operated short-lived service into YYZ?

Any 10 small private sector Canadian upstarts that will spawn to replace AC when AC is liquidated later this year or in 2004.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Many!

Virgin
Braniff
VARIG
VASP
Aerolineas Argentinas
TAP
Iberia
Sabena
SAS
Royal Jordanian
Singapore
Thai
Air China
Air Ukraine
VIASA
Air-India

All these carriers had sked service into YYZ for a short period, from a few months to a few years.

I think these three airlines would fill the void that YYZ has right now.

SQ's lasted a under a year, I think. It was terminated because of a dispute over the air services agreement.

Don't forget Swissair used to come to YYZ. Did Qantas ever fly its own planes to Pearson?

My top 10 list is very similar to Mel's above:

In no particular order
1. JetBlue
2. Emirates
3. Virgin Atlantic
4. South African Airways
5. Japan Airlines
6. Swiss
7. Lan Chile
8. Qantas
9. Aer Lingus
10. Aerolineas Argentinas

I have excluded a few Star Alliance airlines (Varig, SAS, BMI , Singapore etc) because AC already flies between YYZ and their main hub, which means, in competition terms, their presence in Toronto would not generate as much difference as non-Star members.

I'd be happy just to see Air Canada stick around for a few more years.

Just imagine, it's the middle of January, you step onboard our plane in YYZ, and you're suddenly transported to the land of sun, sand, and the mai-tai. Besides, I used to fly into YYZ a lot in my commuter days, and I'd like to go back now and then. Sweet dreams!

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Wunderk,

Qantas used to fly SYD-HNL-YYZ 3x weekly with their own 767's, pre-9/11.

They also flew SYD-HNL-YVR with 767's but that also stopped after 9/11. Now QF codeshares with Alaska from YVR to LAX and operate their own services from LAX to Australia.
