Re: Washington, D.C. Airports (BWI, DCA, IAD) Thread - 2021

IAD NEEDS Westjet 787 service to Western CA. We should have better options to expand from IAD. I don't think it really even makes sense for WestJet to serve Dulles, much less with a 787. There just isn't that much Canadian demand from here, and the demand that does exist is to eastern Canada. LAX, ...
