Re: Delta/WestJet Joint Venture Tentatively Approved

Yes but I mean a bus service that is marketed in the WS and DL system as though it were a connecting flight. I doubt that'll ever happen as it would add costs to the airlines without any incremental revenue. The drive from Windsor to DTW is easy-peasy. Cross the bridge and hop on I-94. I'm still am...

Re: Why was the A319 never used on longer routes?

AC used the A319 to fly to LHR, so it did happen, but as far as I know that's the only one. Why? Maybe something to do with the poorer economics compared to the larger siblings, but I couldn't explain. I was about to mention this flight. I think it was departing from Halifax.

I'm not so sure this is a final list. I expect we will see a lot more stations go. :checkmark: :checkmark: :checkmark: As always, thanks for the list. Was hoping to fly into TXL on UA one last time but alas. Interesting they would reduce that *DL CUN-MSP JAN 3>1.2[1.8] FEB 3>1.0[3] MAR 3>1.0[3] It ...
