    When did AC axe this seasonal route? Any time I was on it, it was packed. Sigh.

    Not sure of the exact time line but I did locate this article...
    AC cancels YVR-YZF service

    ACCORDING to Airline Route, Air Canada’s winter seasonal service between Vancouver (YVR) and Yellowknife (YZF) has been cancelled for the winter season. No service between the two cities will be available for the winter 2011/2012 season.

    The tourism industry in Yellowknife is concerned about the decision as it will affect the number of visitors to the area, according to a report from cbc.ca. Hotel owners are concerned that the direct service from Vancouver will affect the local economy.

    Although there is still a connecting flight via Edmonton (YEG) and Calgary (YYC), the travel times are longer and too inconvenient.
