Re: Orlando Air Service Discussion Part 2

Appreciate the answers. This started as a family trip to take the kids to Disneyworld with the grandparents, and then they said we could take off for a few days. Cuba is still on our list of countries to visit so the timing of the MCO-HAV flight coming online was perfect. So we'll have about a week ...

Re: Orlando Air Service Discussion Part 2

Looking forward to trying out the JetBlue HAV flight in a few weeks. Coming back the same day that we fly MCO-YYC with WS. JetBlue and WestJet look to depart out of the same gate area correct? If so after clearing US Customs is there a way to stay in the secure area to go to our WS flight? Or do we ...

Odd...


Delta has tried ATL-YYC in the past, never stuck around though.
We do have service to both JFK (WS) and EWR (AC), so that may take any possibility of BOS or WAS off the table.

Re: Edelweiss thinking about nonstop ZRH-HNL flights

Hmm, we had heard that Edelweiss may serve YYC next year with the A343 (we have had the 332 and 333 this summer). Perhaps they go for this and tack on the stop at YYC on the way? There are quite a lot of people that fly YYC-Hawaii (although OGG is the more popular destination).
