AC has cut the YYC- YXJ 1x daily flights from July 31, after operating it for few months since May 1.
But Calgary YYC - Fort St John YXJ will still be operated by WestJet 2x daily which they have a stronghold on that route at YYC & 1 of the reasons why AC cut it.
I'm sure you have insider information on exactly why every Canadian airline makes a decision. Ever think that maybe the route is just a bad route and not worth operating?
Both AC and WJ have with a terrible load factor on that route. There are days with even 2 WJ flights the 1 AC flight has more passengers and then there are days when WJ does better. I can't even see a day within the next month that the 23:10 WJ departure has more than 50% load factor.
Huh, interesting. There must be a reason why WS has consistently operated double daily YYC-YXJ though.
No idea. But YYC-YXJ doesn’t really have good load factors for either airline.
The 23:10 departure I assume is there for connections although it looks like there isn’t a whole lot.
