Behramjee, think and verify your facts because you rush to spit them all out. And why do you fancy using "-" to separate between subjects, didn't they teach you in English class that comma should be the right one used instead? It just gets annoying after reading your posts.
do not serve YVR
, they only code-share into YVR
is the only one with year-round double daily (excluding the YYZ
stopover). Few Asian carriers into YVR
have daily flights e.g. JL
(only in the summer months do they have 10x weekly, ie. double daily on some days) but 2 of which continue onto MEX
has daily but only during the summer, same with CI
. Many fail to secure rights for additional flights and only in the summer do they get to add an extra flight, e.g. KE
These flights are too very crowded during peak season needless to say and from time to time remain packed during off-peak times. I'm sure same goes to those flights heading for Europe. I can't agree that supply surpasses demand for the Asian flights because they are pretty hard to get booked on to, and you have to book way in advance for travel during holidays. Just thought I'd say that my flights YVR
vv on BA
at the end of last month were barely full, both ways. So any additional capacity could well be only seasonal.
As to why the fares are more expensive on the shorter sectors, I would only say it is because of less competition and somehow supply and demand is a factor but I would not regard as the major one.
