Re: Japan allocates additional Haneda international slots to ANA & JAL

Because the demand for Montreal and Calgary is very small and can be sustained with 1x daily from AC. YYZ on the other hand is a way bigger market and a bigger star alliance hub too. its home to the largest city in Canada and is pretty big for a metropolitan area (6-7 million people). YYZ can be com...

Re: Japan allocates additional Haneda international slots to ANA & JAL

Wait, if AC gets another HND slot for YVR-HND, will NH get an extra Canada slot that can be used for HND-YYZ?

Re: Japan allocates additional Haneda international slots to ANA & JAL

Canada gets none?!?!?! YYZ desperately needs service from either NH or JL, most likely it would be NH. It is the only major international airport in North America with many asian carriers but no NH or JL service and its been too long without such Japanese carrier service.
