Come tomorrow AC will only serve YEG with domestic routes as it is dropping LHR due to a lack of metal. No transborder, no international. It's an absolute joke that a major airline can so woefully underserve a major market.
I've taken that flight a few times and it was always full. Lots of people heading to India via Heathrow, although AC had a very old 767 on that route. Relatively small plane for a 8.5hr flight.
IcelandAir is opening Reykyavik-Edmonton-Reykyavik route, but that too will be a with a small plane. They are going to be flying 757's, which are a one aisle 3 by 3 planes, but longer than a typical WestJet 737.
Wonder if anyone else will take on that route now? British airways perhaps? I'e yet to see an airline not take advantage of a profitable flight.
