Default Qantas Vancouver 2019

Hi all, is Qantas doing their seasonal flights to Vancouver in 2019? I have searched everywhere and cannot see any Sydney to Vancouver direct flights for 2019 either mid year or December.

Any information is appreciated.

Interesting. I couldn't find any direct flights (QF74/75) in the usual seasonal period of four weeks in July 2019, either.

I always thought that Vancouver would be a great B789 year round route for QANTAS starting with 3 services per week to give some competition to AC. Alas, aircraft #8 has gone to operate Hong Kong services.

Its very hard to compete with AC, and there are better destinations to compete with other carriers when it comes to passenger loads.

We are looking to go next year and if not Qantas, then we’ll fly Air New Zealand. We went with Qantas last Christmas and loved it. The loads on our flights were full. Pity if Qantas don’t head up next year.

Seat utilisation was 82% in January, significantly lower than most other routes on the inbound leg.

Now that most of December 2019 is loaded into the QANTAS timetable I searched again for Vancouver flights and they are scheduled on Mon, Thu and Sat from 12 December, 2019 with 744 equipment. The current seasonal timetable goes to 26 January, 2019, so I guess that for 2019/2020 the flights will continue until approximately 25 January, 2020.

There are still no non-stop flights to Vancouver scheduled in July, 2019.

Thanks James. I phoned Qantas and was advised that mid year flights are off this year. Only running for December/January as you mentioned.
