Does anyone know if AS will be re-instating its 6:40pm flight LAX-YVR? I travel on that flight almost every Sunday night, and it seems to have been removed from the schedule as of Sun June 3 thru at least the end of July. Summer in BC is big vacation time, and TV production will be resuming on lots of series. Wondering why AS would have reduced their schedule. Planes are always full.

Thy are making room for Virgin America to come swoop
In and take over.

Actually, the planes aren't always full and I assume the yields are in the toilet, given that West Jet, Air Canada, United and Alaska are all slugging it out on this route.

I wish Virgin America would swoop back onto the LAX-YYZ route and create downward pressure on fares again.
|Quoting sptv (Reply 5):|
They are not replacing the 6:40 with a 9:05 flight. There's always been a late flight. They are suspending the 6:40 flight til late August, when they return to 4 flights per day in each direction. I fly this route regularly. Don't know about yields, but the planes are always full. Including F, where I often cannot get a seat on the flights I want because they are sold out.

Is AS going to be short an a/c during the summer season, so when they bring back LAX-ANC-LAX, they need the a/c for one of the two flights up to Alaska? Actually, it would seem they would want to add an additional frequency during the Summer season to YVR.
