Yeah, but they will/would start this route when they get their 2 new 777s.
There are other priorities before a YUL
-Italy! To mention a few: the supposed MXP
, reopening of many routes such HKG
, putting the 777 where it's needed (EZE
, and so on).
If they can keep it running, it would be great a MXP
with 777, more room, more cargo, more pax, a single flight. But a daily or a 5-weekly Italy-YUL
flight would be full in Y but hardly in C/F, making the flight unprofitable.
By the way, in an Italian aviation forum, after a careful reading of the latest AZ
press release, it's mentioned they have been granted a 500+ milion $ loan for a further batch of other 6 777 (-200ER, we supposed). 6 delivered, 4 on leasing to be delivered before the end of the year and this 6 more = 16 777.
