Incorporate two Canadian cities in a Oneworld RTW Award, Montreal to Vancouver.

Hi

Im looking for advice on how to incorporate two Canadian cities in a Oneworld RTW Award, Montreal to Vancouver.


We are looking at
BNE - LAX - JFK - YUL - YVR - NRT or HKG - BNE

It all seems to hang together except the YUL - YVR as I cant find OW routes

Any help would be much appreciated

Have possibly thought about doing it the other way around of
BNE - HKG or NRT - YVR - JFK - YUL - JFK - LAX - BNE
but that's not ideal

That's probably because there isn't any. Canada has no domestic OW carrier so if you want that route you'll have to go transborder as you already suggested.

Well, AFAIK, FWIW, WS does codeshare with some OW members but I have no clue if they would be included in their flight reward options.

A baby could have been born and grown in an adult, almost, since there was OW presence within Canada. More or approximately the same time since there was *A presence within Australia.

Love it. That made me laugh so much.

So in terms of routing if I must stay on an OW carrier is it best to go from YUL back to JFK or is there another hub I can use to get to YVR?

This isn't all that easy. Does Cathay Pacific ticket from JFK to YVR? Short of that, I imagine the only other single connection possible with OW is AA through DFW.

CX does indeed carry local traffic between JFK and YVR -- in both directions. But if Canada has an anti-cabotage law, the OP might be required to spend at least 24 hours in NYC before continuing on to Canada.

If the oneworld ticket permits ground segments, YUL-ALB/BTV, or SEA-YVR might be worth exploring.

Ground segments are allowed. They are just counted in the overall mileage.

I don't understand the YUL-ALB/BTV, or SEA-YVR option?

Can you explain. Thanks

Assume this is a QF 280,000 points 15 segment RTW award? (One of the better features of the QF ffp compared to other QF awards)
Will not have the same rules as *ONE* which many people here will have knowledge of.

Swap SEA for YVR. SEA-YVR is not far as a ground segment. A lot of transport options including train.
Route -->Great Circle Mapper

Route 2 http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=+YUL-AL...V&MS=wls&DU=mi

Yes it is a QF oneWorld Classic Flight Reward

So I see you are saying to do YUL - JFK - SEA then land to YVR.

Yes. If you want to visit Vancouver, consider flying into SEA. Then take land transport up to Vancouver (~200miles). Both are way better cities/areas than most North American cities. Pacific NW is a nice area to visit.

Same on the other side of USA/Canada for YUL

Can't you fly YUL-ORD-YVR? though to avoid cabotage regulations you'd have to spend 24 hours in ORD.

Looks like AA doesn't fly ORD-YVR every day of the week. To be fully unencumbered by cabotage regs, my guess is YUL-ORD-SEA is the easiest option.
