Forgot to look at this, oops :)

One-way YQR-YVR is no problem. Very reasonable fares, and non-stop.
The Chinese idea is an interesting one.

Right now, a return flight NRT-YVR-YQR/YQR-YVR-NRT...

One-way NRT/HND-xxx-YQR - how/when to get reasonable fare?

Hi,

I've done some overseas travel before but never needed to pay the one-way ticket game. (Flew YQR-YYZ-LHR and CDG-YYZ-YQR once but AC is reasonable on that open jaw.)

In September 2020...

I did mine a week and a half before you did (about two weeks after my one-year-from-expiration point), and it only took 14 calendar days, so there is hope. It probably depends on how deeply into...

I did indeed. I'm a NEXUS user and I rarely read this thread, but have been lately because of curiosity borne of some planned Japanese travel. Apologies!

What aircraft? YQR-MSP was a successful route for Delta, abandoned only because US subsidies made flying to quieter US airports economically defensible.

Of course, carrying a letter of documentation from your physician will go a long way to help you actually make your flight. It depends on whether your priority is being stubborn or actually...

You were told wrong. There absolutely is a transfer process and you can even do it yourself on the Trusted Traveler website.

Our second renewal. We processed our online renewal applications on August 20. We got emails yesterday advising of a change in status - a login revealed "approved". No interviews necessary.

Prince Albert National Park is underrated. It's beautiful and, especially outside mid-June-to-Labour-Day, quite quiet. It's about a 2-hour drive from YXE.

I always liked these planes. 95% of the time I fly YQR-YYZ or vice versa, it's an E90.

I seem to recall a year or so ago that AC had a deal to sell these to Delta when they were done with them...?

If you got your fingerprints scanned when you did your NEXUS interview (or have done so subsequently), you have Global Entry as well. Simply use GE as though that's your program.

I flew a CRA SFO-YYC last year and thought it was fine, and have flown it YYZ<>YQR many times. No complaints. Mind, that was with the relatively luxurious 34" seat pitch that is disappearing in the...

I've cleared Customs both directions at both YUL and YYZ several times (more at YYZ, mind). None were problematic. Once at YUL the kiosks forced me to speak to an officer, but that still went fast....

I suspect a lot of the Pre foreigners have trusted traveler status. I'm Canadian and I get Pre, by virtue of having NEXUS. (i.e. I have been vetted.)

NEXUS is rather a bargain: you get NEXUS,...

As an American, you don't require evidence of onward travel when you visit Canada. You're entitled to come and stay up to six months. So I wouldn't worry about it.
