I just noticed YYC-SFO is up to 2x daily in the summer, with UA also doing 2x daily. When was that announced? Because I don't think it was 2x last summer after AC re-started the route.

It was not 2x daily last year. What are the flight times?

Wait, this is the rouge thread. YYC-SFO wasn't rouge before. Is it rouge now?

This isn't the Rouge thread. It's a Master Thread for ML and Rouge routes that I created for route updates and changes using info from Routes Online etc.

AC8583 YYC1720 – 1915SFO CRA
AC8582 SFO1955 – 2337YYC CRA

Pretty good time to allow spending most of the day in SFO before catching a flight to YYC.

YYZ-SRQ Winter 2017

I just noticed YYZ-SRQ frequency has been reduced to once weekly on Sunday only in December 2017.

It has been daily for a while.

I hope that isn't the case...the route is quite busy at that time of year...they will also directly compete with WJ which only flies 2 times/week including Sundays. Maybe going back to Mainline?

QUESTIONS

On 4 different flights recently, SEVERAL crews have said

1. AC will be flying to SIN from YVR
2. MEX is going rouge

I know there has been plenty of speculation about #1 but I had not heard #2.

Further to the comment someone posted somewhere that YUL-TLV will be rouged, would that be a wise move or a reaction to TS?

(rouge is now a verb? )

.

Regarding #1, YES!!!
Regarding Rouge as a verb, yes. It started when your AC Mainline flight was replaced with a Rouge aircraft. You would use it as following: "My flight back from Vegas got Rouged, so not only did I lose money at the casino, and be way too hungover, but my knees where in my throat too. On the plus side, the flight attendant was a young chipper girl who tried her best!"

That route was announced earlier this week on an AC mainline A330 operating twice weekly from Jun. 22 to Oct.16. It doesn't guarantee the route won't be converted to rouge in the future but not seeing the route's status change before the first flight even leaves the ground.

Haven't we found pilot/crew speculation to be a fairly unreliable source?

Like tcook, I have difficulty seeing them rouge a route they just announced with mainline.

And of course, your post had me looking at my post only to discover I lost another round to auto-correct. I meant: "several" crews

The crews were only commenting on YVR-SIN (which they seemed excited about) and the rumour of MEX to rouge

I was the one thinking out loud about TS YUL-TLV and AC rouge in response.

I think that sums up many FTers' experience perfectly.^
