Yes canada has & has had long haul lccs & canada 3000, the launch customer for the A332 & one of the 1st long haul lccs, was apparently doing very well flying yvr bne syd direct before sep11 killed it off. Makes you wonder why air transat have never flown to Australia, nz or even HawaiiTherein lies your answer. The leisure markets are better served by long haul LCC. Currently there are no long haul LCC in the US let alone any that will do a transpacific. Alternatively why would they go transpacific when lets of similar sightseeing can be gotten a few hours flight to the Bahamas or Mexico?
