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.

8- well, that would have been my first guess as well ... how about Cascade, operating a Beech 99 with stops in Yakima (YKM), Walla Walla (ALW) (their primary maintenance base), and Kalispell (FCA)
