Maybe they won't fly the obvious YVR/SYD/YVR route, although Air Canada's new fares from OZ to Canada have gone up significantly eg. nearly AUD$300 return increase year to year in economy (cheapest peak season).
|Quoting Gemuser (Reply 3):|
Well because of the current bi-lateral they can only go thru SFO & HNL & NAN between Canada & Oz, so I don't know that they can be that inovative.

rom a tour operator who's apparently been talking to them.
Apparently only question is when & how many flights per week.
|Quoting SunriseValley (Reply 7):
The service would have to be one stop from either YYZ or YVR. Such a service would be an ideal way of better utilising their fleet in the northern winter.
How about YYZ-HNL-SYD ? IN the days of CP there was quite reasonable YYZ-HNL traffic , I would expect that the potential traffic has improved since then.
|Quoting Easyas321 (Reply 10):|
Apparently they were talking YVR/BNE nonstop. What maximum passengers could they carry assuming no freight?
|Quoting Sebring (Reply 11):|
Not enough to make money. Considering that there are payload-restricted 763 routes a thousand miles shorter than YVR-BNE, I wouldn't bet on a compensatory load factor except at very un-Zoom-like prices.
|Quoting QF175 (Reply 13):|
I'd love to see AC offer a BNE-HNL-YVR service, even if it were only seasonal, to transport Skiiers from Queensland to Canada (probably make no money though - better to get all pax to go to SYD and connect to AC there).
Although, it would be great to have a year-round BNE-HNL and BNE-YVR service to transport people from QLD to Canada/Hawaii and to bring people from Canada to beautiful Queensland

Makes sense. If Zoom is to add new routes I believe It'll be in Europe first.
I've heard some good things about Zoom and their service in flight and on the ground from freinds that have flown them. I can't wait to fly them one day.
|Quoting Sebring (Reply 15):|
The 340-300 has a good deal more range than the 767-300, so the answer is still no.

but might be via tech stop at non-US port, so no silly U.S. customs & immigration nonscience to contend with.
