A WOW flight to YYC might take some of the wind out of WS “sales” on its new flights to Europe ... as WOW looks to continue expansion in Canada.

FI is actually expanding at YVR and it looks like they are in fact expanding year-round.

WW has chosen to add YVR despite all the competition there.

WW could have added YEG... But they haven’t (maybe they will).

And this is despite FI reducing flights at YEG - with very little competition at YEG to Europe, FI has pulled back at YEG.

“Any withdrawal by FI at YVR” is rather presumptuous... there are many reasons why so many carriers offer so many flights to Europe from YVR.
