Oh bless them they're nothing if not predictable.
Flew STN-GLA recently and was rammed both ways, mind you yields as ever may not cut the mustard.

I believe TS to YVR will not operate in 2019.

Hasnt been bookable since last month so you believe correctly. Given the huge jump in connections through Toronto and Halifax its not surprising. Great still to have TS operating a decent schedule (most on A330) to YYZ for S19.

I'm surprised that route lasted as long as it did.

Another lost destination to add to the many in the last year or so but more important for the airport to preserve its hub routes in the bigger picture.

Is this the first time since the PIK days Scotland hasn’t had a direct YVR flight in summer? Albeit often via YYC?

Cause airports larger than Glasgow have failed to sustain such distance services, even at 1x weekly on a seasonal basis.

There was a strong west of Scotland diaspora after heavy emigration after the war, hence was a full B747 for Wardair and an L1011-500 with Air Canada in summer which Air Transat inherited and maintained.

I'm aware of that. My brother lives in Canada, but Toronto as a hub, a p2p destination, a much larger city, the frequency of flights and a shorter journey I always felt satisfied the Scotland-Canada market. At least it will going forward.

Seems like Westjet flight WS2 is diverting to Glasgow.

When did the GLA route become unviable then?

Obviously not enough passengers to justify running the flight on its own.

That's a fairly vague post.. care to elaborate on that? What's your source?

Was told it was off the booking engine for next year, whilst all the other UK regional routes, including Newcastle, remain.
