Excuse me sir,
My hobby is to analyze and survey the daily operations of Dorval Airport (YUL!). As such, I know when things do not run of a normal operation. Furthermore, I work the night-shift at Northwest/Continental at YUL, we use gate no.31, located right beside gate 29. SOme of my very good friends work at Air France in Montreal, and I converse with them on a daily basis. So you have no right, under the terms that I have presented, to suggest that I do not know what entails in the turn-around operation etc. Furthermore, AF's tardyness has often caused our operations to divert to different gates, (for example gate 30 is used for our RON NW DC9-50), AF 345's gate.
I am not suggesting that the AF crew in Montreal is to blame, since they do a formidable job of turning around in reasonable time. However, I do constantly believe that AF is clowning around, because delays for AF are not isolated incidents, rather usual/consistent incidents. Time is money.... AF seems not to believe so. If so, they would have gotten their act together a little while ago.
Air France 345 shows a 6pm departure on ADMTL.COM, however would you like to place a friendly bet that this plane will not leave the gate at that hour? the ADMTL.com is the least updated of all the flight display information tools. Trust me, I work there.... our flights are often delayed, while the screen show "departed/left"/.
" I would kindly suggest you take into consideration all possibilities before making such judgements." - Sir, before you make a judgment, you really ought to know how much knowledge I have about this subject. I apologize if you feel like a fool now!
