Re: SQ flights to LAS, YYZ & ORD and JFK via BRU

If SQ can make SIN-SEA work, how can they not make SIN-YVR work with AC being there? AC codeshares with SQ unlike UA so I think its very possible with a A359 since that can fly to YVR direct from SIN.

Re: American adds more Asia to SEA, and other long-haul changes

IIRC, I think the flight was also originally tied to QF leaving the YYZ market. QF used to do YYZ-HNL-SYD with a 763 and almost immediately after QF leaving YYZ, AA began LAX-YYZ with flights that were directly timed to QF connections at LAX. It initially began as a daily 738, at one point IIRC it ...

You are the only one, AA doesn't even fly LAX/PHX-YYZ I got the impression that YYZ-LAX rode on some large corporate entertainment contract that they lost; as for PHX-YYZ, it skews heavily towards Canada POS and it's hard for AA to compete with Rouge and WestJet on the route.

Re: SQ A359ULRs all parked?

YVR would come first before YYZ. No. MZFW (Maximum Zero Fuel Weight) of A359ULR is similar/close to standard A359. With the exception of maybe the 777-200LR and a340-500, most flights greater than 10-11 hr in length are under MZFW because, generally speaking, most aircraft needs to trade payload at ...
