Well we all know that YYZ is the busiest airport in Canada but is it better than YUL. I know I always find myself complaining about the GTAA is the ADM the same? I know we could rank them on airlines, destinations, etc. but how about the services and facilities of each airport.

I am open to other rankings though...

YYZ services destinations they have the market for. YUL serves a lot of Arab destinations since they have a huge Jordanian, Moroccan and Algerian population. YUL is a nice airport which is small and easy to navigate. YYZ is larger and hard to navigate for some.

There are many fewer services inside security at YUL especially the domestic arm. Only one restaurant to choose from. One magazine and one electronics store. I found the walk to the new US arm very long. I haven't been in the new International wing at all. The Maple Leaf Lounges (AC's first class lounge) are quite small and can get crowded.

YYZ is big, and harder to navigate, but YUL doesn't have nearly as much service as YYZ.

YYZ is much more appealing to me than YUL. Its more airy, less claustraphobic.

What is this comparison?

Toronto has spent nearly 4 billion dollars on their airport vs a measly 800 million at YUL? How can you compare apples and oranges? Toronto is a primary hub, Montreal is a secondary hub.

I'll tell you one thing. It costs you $6,000 more in general terminal assesment fees and landing fees to land at YYZ vs YUL. That means you need to seat 20 more pax per flight at a higher yield, to offset the difference in cost between the two cities. Thats something Toronto should NOT be proud of.. with all due respect.

Toronto is not only simply a larger population base but also it is Canada's #1 business centre by far.

Along with that will come an airport with more to offer in terms of destinations, flights and choices.

For a city the size of Montreal, it's new imrpoved airport is adequate.

It's a similar thing here in Australia. The difference between MEL and SYD is not as great as YYZ and YUL (in terms of population and the business community)... but

SYD has the international draw that seems to lack in MEL. Hence why there are sooo many more international flights and carriers out of SYD. However, Melbourne has a bigger domestic market than Sydney which does surprise me.

YUL is more convenient than YYZ with everything in one terminal, and since they opened the new international and transborder piers a couple of years ago, those facilities are much better than they were before. Considering that the current YUL terminal dates from the 1950s and has been expanded and updated numerous times, it does a pretty good job.
