Vancouver Ends Preferential Treatment For US Bound Connections
For the longest time - I have used Vancouver as a gateway to Europe and Asia from my home in Seattle. And this sometimes gets me a better price and a reasonable connection. There used to be a great back door that you could use that bypassed the whole process and gave you a quick access to the commuter terminal.
Well not any more. Despite being assured that I would not have to "land" in Canada - sorry yes now you do. Those nice days of a connection are over.
