It's good if the market can support it --maybe for Mexicans wanting to fly on to Europe and Europeans to Mexico, bypassing the new U.S. transit requirement and the possible security hassles and so on, I don't know. As long as it doesn't take away a lot of passengers from MX or endager flights to either city, it's welcome news.

Ahh to bad AC won't upgrade their equipment! Why not sending the 767 or 330 instead of the 319!! Offering more seats and as usual beating the Mexican airlines.....

Right now AC sends 767 to MEX will they instead send 2 A319's?
Does not sound great to me....
The Montreal deal is great

Hope AC and MX manage well the time departures of their YYZ-Mex flights, because right now they are not scheduled for connecting traffic. For example:

AC 993 YYZ-Mex 08:25 - 12:10
MX 887 YYZ-Mex 10:05 - 14:25

if you are flying from Europe, you have to overnight at YYZ to catch one of these flights. They need an evening departure from YYZ in order to get more feeding traffic from their European network.
