YVR Do August 17 2019

It's been a while since I've been to a YVR do, and even just since I've been to YVR.

Location and exact time TBD, but assume it will be dinner and drinks.

Will see of I can SDC to a narrow body and arrive earlier but at least I can get a drink with you all.

Would be grand if you could be near a Canada Line station...

Either way, I am there.

The bovine and I have our flights booked. We'll be there (late) Friday through (late) Sunday. Our return flight is now Y1 B0. Got it just in time.

A placeholder to ensure I had a name under each section.

Edit: Speaking of which, he's no longer necessary.

EDIT: spoke too soon. AC wanted $1200 (on top of an already purchased B fare) for the change. Will go the SDC route and hope for the best. Would love to be there from the jump.

Strange that changing a flight a couple hours earlier with the same fare basis available would cost $1200. They didn't tell me that until the last second - after canceling my original booking and eUp. Was a bit of a mess to get it back to how it was but it's done now.

Yeah I find phone agents often see "B" and assume no charge. I've had to prod them with "are you sure there's no fare difference?" in the past.

Isn't that short enough to just take a flight in the morning?
