Wow, YZF is really getting a tonne of flights. Maybe this was caused by the rumour of WJ entering the market in the next 12 months.

Hopefully the market isn't going to be to saturated.

My guess is that YZF-YVR will go year-round. This is a perfect route for the CRJ if yields are good,mind you it's a bit of a long flight in that aircraft (2:35 gate to gate). What's next on AC radar for YZF,perhaps seasonal service to YYZ?

So the question is........is some other route/frequency being cut to free up this CRJ, or is it just available because of additonal E190's coming online and taking over some routes??
