GREAT!!! Another airline lost to YYZ . That's too bad. We had a lot of airline in here in Montreal, but then whe started loosing a few, like JAT and Austrian to YYZ. Well, those days are over. If my calculations are correct, here in Montrea-Dorval, we can expect up to 9 new airlines starting service here (WestJet, RootsAir, LACSA, Cubana, Crystal Airways, Legacy Airlines, TWA, TunisAir, Egyptair) and maybe even more airlines like Alitalia and Lufthansa. Also AC plans on having new routes from Montreal to Atlanta, Milan and Beyrut.
