Downsizing and revivials. I am sorry to talk too much about YVR but I just think its a wonderful airport (I can spot it now but I will sure miss it when I go back to Japan) But there are a few comments I would like to pose and I would like to get your feedback.
First of all, the SQ down-sizing. When did this route start as a 777-200ER? It was on many videos operated using a 747, but was there not enough demand? The same goes with Korean Air 071. When was this plane also changed to an 777 from a 744?
Revival of Malaysian airlines, will this be a likely case or no? With traffic increasing, YVR seems to be booming so I thought this could be a case? And also the Philippine 106, when was the shift of this aircraft to an A340 from a 744? Well I know that the company is in bad situation right now and can't blame them.
Dash-8, I have read in past posts of Air Canada getting the CRJ instead. Is this for spacing or approach speed regulations? I know the dash-8's are really slow compared to the CRJ's.
