I was wondering if there is any news for AC or TP to start sked service between YYZ and LIS any time soon. With TP now a member of Star Alliance it would only make sense for one of them to jump on, especially with TP connections to Africa and Brazil...not to mention there is no longer sked service to MAD by AC anymore...things have to change here, no scheduled service between Portugal and Canada is ludacris, and now the oppritunity is there knocking...your thoughts

My thought is that LIS is still hardly a great gateway, therefore not having much benefit for either TP or AC to have connections between the two cities. In the past, scheduled services have not made any money, according to the airlines operating there, including CP, AC and TP. Besides, the route is well served with Transat, Sata and Skyservice.
