Metis TransPacific To YVR

Sat May 12, 2007 2:49 pm

Is this actually happening or what?

The website has not changed in the last 2 months.

http://www.metismacau.com/corporate/index.php

Still shows the "next scheduled flights" on the 12 June.

Still shows three flights per week Macau - Vancouver for June only.

Anybody have any information on this?

Have not seen any press releases from YVR. I am doubtful we will see them in Vancouver beginning June 2007.

That's what I sort of figured. Almost seems to be a phantom.

But OASIS is launching from YVR at the end of June nonstop to HKG...fares are awesome. CX is my airline on this route but lately their prices have skyrocketed...this should give them some competition. UA also starts LAX to HKG in October, a route that CX has monopolized as well. We welcome the competition here in YVR and CX could use some on routes like this and from LAX etc. keep them on their toes.

I noticed on the Metis website under fleet it shows a photo of their 747-300 landing at YVR.
Will the Oasis HKG-YVR-HKG be daily?
Speaking of YVR, did anyone see the French air force A340-200 there on Friday? And does anyone know why it paid a visit?

It's a fake, Photoshopped from a photo of an all-white Air Atlanta Icelandic charter landing at YVR a year ago. Compare the fake and original photos below:

I believe 6 times a week was the word. WOW I know there are alot of people in Vancouver from Hong Kong but can it support CX, AC, Oasis plus Metis???
Keep the shinny side up!
