Does anyone have a list of current airlines serving YUL? The ADM website isn't updated, and with all of the changes/suspensions/discontinuances of flights out of YUL by international carriers, I'm looking for something more complete.

Marco, why should Europeans go to a city that's so European? Maybe they want to see something un-European?

Just kidding, I really do like Montreal!

And before someone asks, AC/LH operate YUL-FRA in a joint venture, that's why LH doesn't fly to YUL themselves.

So what other European carriers should fly there? AZ, IB, EI, SK? Except for AZ, they don't even fly to YYZ...

Well for a start, the city of Montreal is very European in the sense that the early settlers were from different parts of Europe, the majority being from France. The population of Europeans in Montreal is high till this day. The city is full of Italians, Greeks, Germans, Jews, etc. YUL has lost lots of destinations over the years; FCO, TLV, BRU, SVO, etc...

Could one reason be the unattractive international
terminal? What about expansion/upgrade plans (given that passengers have been paying the AIF for years)?

Montréal is a great city, I really loved it. People there are so kind !!! And the city is so nice to visit.
Nothing to do with a US city !!!

I really hope the new Belgian carrier intends to go back there. YUL-BRU was only 6 hours long flight with the SN A330-300.

Bonjour à mes cousins Québecois (Je me souviens) !!!

Marco, but what's that construction to the west of the terminal, looks like a new concourse?

It's not a disgraceful terminal, it ain't the most sophisticated, but it's bright, it's simple, and it's fast....

The major problem at YUL, is the dominance of the YYZ hub, and the fact that we have a lot of demand, most of it low-yield pax.

Could we support Montreal-Rome/Milan, not a problem. We can even support Montreal-Tel Aviv...Austrian is coming to Montreal on May1st with 3 weeklies to VIE. This is a test, it's a low-frequency, secondary tier hub. So let's see the passenger breakdown, and hope for profitability..it certainly is a great carrier to have..

The future belongs to Air Canada. They control 60-65% of YUL traffic, have a monopoly on all domestic traffic, and given these parameters, they have the balls to cut Montreal-Winnipeg, and reduce frequencies on several heavy-travelled routes like Montreal-calgary and Montreal-Vancouver, where it is now near impossible to find a non-stop seat, at a relatively cheap price (note : the word RELATIVELY!)....

Some progress has been made, starting next summer, CSA will fly YUL-PRG alone with no YYZ feed on the thursday flight, OA will be back to 4 weekly, RAM will be back 4 weekly, OS will come, AC will go back 2 daily to CDG..etc etc etc etc...Before Sept 11, YUL was the fastest growing MAJOR canadian airport.....not so bad for all of the rest of Canada, that continuously look down on Montreal as 2nd class city with 2nd class citizens.......

As for the question on the expansion. The construction on the west end is the new Transboder finger going up. Once it is up, the old one is to be taken down and a new International finger is to go up. This will include all new immigration and customs facilities. Hope this answers your question.

Mark,

IMO it's a disgraceful terminal. I would expect an airport like that in a third world country. Simple as that.

Fly-K,
I believe that's the new international finger that they're building.

Ok Marco,

Let's agree to disagree, but I have visited many North American airports, and let me tell you that inside the YUL terminal, it's a 1st class airport..after all, it won 5th place overall in the IATA ranking of airport under 15 million pax.....so maybe we are 3rd world? I understand that you live in the Gulf region, and they have some fantastic airports.....but whatever you do, visit FLL or DTW right now, and tell me that they are better than Dorval, just please do that...

Dont worry people, YUL is in the same situation as MEL in Australia. Qantas doesnt seem to see a market where it obviously exists ( just ask Singapore Airlines ), the same as Air Canada not seeing potential in its YUL market.

The hubbing out of SYD in Australias cases and YYZ in Canada is both annoying and impracticle, and inefficent for so many people. Connects at SYD are hard and inefficent, and that airport is a huge joke overall. YYZ also seems to have similar problems.

Isnt Air Canada based in Montreal?

In the long run Air Canada will lose so much traffic overall, that it will be despirate to get back into the market. Same as Qantas here. Since Ansetts demise MEL has lost alot, and the same can also be said for Montreal with the loss of Canada 3000.

Good luck YUL

ciao

Mark I've been to DTW unfortunately. It's a hell hole. But I've also been to DEN, MCO, YVR, AMS, etc and they make YUL look like a dump in comparison. Anyways hopefully with the new transborder finger and the international one, things should be better.

BTW: most airports in the Gulf are CRAP, except for Dubai!

Other crap airports in North American are Boston (absolutely disgusting....filthy!), San Antonio (Nice little airport, but it's older of the two terminals is disgracefull), MCO has an interesting layout, but it's not that great once you get out to the gates.

As for outside North America, LHR is pretty filthy as well, but it seems to d oalright for itself.
