          But there's no business case for any of these cities to have a route to Edmonton. Just having a plane & a masturbatory Twitter poll isn't enough.

                • How many flights a week to Cancun and Puerto Vallarta? I count just one each all year. And we lost our Transat summer flights to PVR and CUN. I dont think we are any better off.

                  • That Ukranian airlines crash is so sad. Something like 30 Edmontonians dead. Sixty some Canadians.
                    I know the accident didn't happen in Canada, but that's got to be top 3 deadliest accident for Canadians.

                      • With AS joining One World and Seattle being an international hub for AA this is going to be an interesting development for the region. Delta didn't hold in YEG, but AS is established and isn't linked with WS. Good news for YEG and good to see OW back in some form.

                          On my last trip, unfortunately couldn't get a non stop from here at the time I wanted to my final US destination. Flew Alaska Airlines to Seattle and got the connecting flight there, which allowed me to clear US customs, here rather than another city, which I prefer. The flights and the connections all went smoothly. The US hubs are fairly big so sometimes have more frequent service than if you have to stop in another Canadian city to connect. The Seattle airport isn't the fanciest, but it works.
