Because firstly they don't have the available aircraft, what aircraft they do have there are more important markets to serve. Also having noticed what passengers VA send through on AC there aren't many that just go to YVR, they connect onto other services within Canada
The 787-9 is the perfect aircraft for this route let alone they have codeshare with WS.
If you had read the posts above yours before posting you would have seen that we are discussing how Qantas will continue to serve their current network once the 747s leave within the next 12 months. There is absolutely no slack in the fleet to add any more new routes for the foreseeable future. Precisely which current routes do you propose they cut to launch YVR?
