Alas, you canít find anything but First Class seats between YVR and YYC. No way, manÖ thatís too much money. HmmÖ whatís this? Well how Ďbout that?! Thereís a daily three stop direct flight between Portland and Calgary that has two seats available at a fairly reasonable fare. Identify the airline, aircraft and the three enroute stops.

17. (1983) Youíve got a breakfast meeting with a new client scheduled for Wednesday morning up in Austin. Itís a bit far to drive from your office in McAllen, Texas but thankfully thereís a direct morning flight thatíll get you into Austin at 8:25am. Two stops are made enroute but at least the flight is operated with a spacious jet rather than a small prop. Identify the airline, the stops and the aircraft type.
Time for a couple of wild guesses.....

8. Republic operating a DC-9-10 on a routing of Portland-Seattle-Pasco-Spokane-Calgary.

17. Emerald operating a DC-9-10 on a routing of McAllen-Houston-San Antonio-Austin.
