Well I can't say that this is a surprise, I don't think there is market large enough to sustain two carriers, especial with detroit so close, there is no need to connect through YYZ to go to Europe or Asia. Maybe they will be ok on the other routes, but I doubt it, and I think that Canjet will be finished within the next few months.

Interesting. But in my view Windsor should be quite fertile ground for alternative airlines. A decent sized population, not much service, and the ability to siphon traffic from Detroit. I have to wonder whether promotion of the route was perhaps a problem?
Hmmm, I wonder if WestJet will go there? Hamilton may have some potential as an O&D market to Windsor, and westbound connections or even direct service has potential, at least in my view. And we know that WJ is a strong competitor...
