Wonder if there will be any passengers since the flight (NZ084) can't be booked on their website and doesn't even show in the timetable.  boxedin

Its on their timetable, but cant be booked - I guess that means its sold out??

Very similar schedule to QF. I think they come in at 14:30 and leave at 18:30 although its to SFO?

Such a pity, every airline flies into YVR is making their planes so dirty. I hope AF joins the party soon btw.

It's over for Quantas, it seems they've already dropped the towel @ YVR. Direct non-stops from Air Canada and Air New Zealand are on the radar as we speak. Quantas had a good window of opportunity to serve YVR but they've chosen to do it via SFO eventually creaming off some unhappy AC' customers .... Nova days, I doubt they could even afford to promote launch and sustain a direct SYD to YVR.

What do you mean?
The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others.

Hello folks. Quick question that maybe someone here might be able to help out with.
I know GSM were a bit of a dirty word at YVR last Summer, but I need to ask a couple of questions relating to them.
#1, what is the situation on their ETOPS now?
and
#2, they have advertised YVR-YYC-DUB for next Summer, but their website is now showing a direct YVR-DUB service.
Sure, it could be a web error. Just wanted to make sure.
I spend a lot of the year in Ireland and (even though it's GSM), a non-stop route from YVR would be a dream for me.
Thanks.
Haven't we been here before ?
