Virgin Atlantic = YVR Bound Possibly?

Mon Jun 14, 1999 7:22 am


I was wondering, I heard before that Virgin Atlantic
might fly into Vancouver, BC, Canada. They have
had one of their B747s in here before, but I do not
think it was carrying people. I could see Virgin
flying into YVR, especially in the summer, because
flights are always full to Europe from YVR at that
time. So, what do you think about this and have you
heard the same thing?

P.S. Virgin only flies to LAX & SFO on the Westcoast,

I don't know if I could see Virgin flying into YVR because there wouldn't be enough demand. There's already AC, CP, and BA with their daily non-stops not to mention canada 3000, Air Transat, and Royal with their cheap seats. I know that the airlinees have had it tough lately going to Europe because they can't get people to fill the seats. Although you can fly to London for $399, people have to remember that we're not New York and we only have a population of about 1-2 million in the area.
Maybe a flight that comes in like 2-3 times a week would be more relevant?!
