Word from my WS neighbour is a 767 will do YYZ and south, ie MCO, FLL, CUN, PUJ, etc.

Whether true rue or not we’ll find out in the next weeks I should think.

I wonder YYC-CDG will affect the YHZ-CDG flight. It ran YYC-YHZ-CDG IIRC. I don't know how much of the TATL traffic came from the west

Last time I was in CDG they had a bomb scare - found a piece of unattended luggage so they cleared out the whole section of the terminal. Security guy said this happens all the time. They opened up after ~45 minutes, we made our flight and it was on time, so I guess they have the procedure down pretty well. Can you imagine if this happened in YYC?

Hmm, a JV with DL, a new route to CDG and an existing KLM flight to/from AMS at YYC. Perhaps a new Skyteam member in the making?

HAHA. YYC-CDG, $12,000 for business class return.

That being said, I can find some fares to London for about $6000 return. Do you think we can use our 2 for 1 certificates??

For the WJ WE MC, the companion voucher only applies to Economy or Premium, not Business.

Will WJ provide complementary upgrade to Business class on these routes for WJ Gold members flying on Econo Flex fare (if there is an empty seat at departure)?

So Business on the 767 is not eligible anymore?
