This may be old news to some Vancouverites, but Air Canada is operating some non-stops YVR-ZIH again. I tend to be stuck with Alaska's crappy sched as I need the points doh...


I learned about the AC flight after yesterday's ZIH flight aborted take-off in the snow, and sat on the taxiway for 5 hours....

AC offers the direct flights only during the high season, ending in early April to get their passengers back to Canada. It’s got a very civilized departure time from Vancouver of about 9:30 AM.

A lot of Canadians prefer not to connect thru the US. Nothing wrong with the USA, but the added time and hassle of having to collect your luggage and dropping it off. It has gotten better, but the unfriendly border agents was reason enough to avoid. Air canada is constantly voted North America’s best airline, by skytraks as well. The top of the bottom feeders. Alaska and Aeromexico are parting ways dec 31 as well., no doubt a result of the Alaska, Virgin , merger.
