Does Moncton have pre-clearence? LGA has no international facilities and can only handle international flights that pre-clear.

Looking at the times, it almost looks like it is routed through YYZ.

Moncton to New York should be no more than 90 minutes, yet is given 4:40 for the flight from YQM-LGA, and 4:30 for LGA-YQM. (there is a one hour time difference between YQM and LGA.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

OK .. Dep YQM 0720 am (thats 0620 LGA time) ARR LGA 1100 am . Thats just
under 5 hours , thats very convenient ! NOT !
The flight looks like it ops thru YYZ by the sounds of it , all pax will have to get off , preclear USA customs , get back on the same plane , then carry onto NEW YORK . Nothing different than what pax do now on AC or WJ .

This press release is highly misleading. Canjet is simply adding a YQM-YYZ-LGA v.v. daily route. There is NO YQM-LGA nonstop.

As low as Canjet fares are, they are still high enough to cover the salaries of some misleading & creative marketing & communications staff at Canjet HQ.  Insane
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

CanJet is being very misleading with this announcement. It's impossible to have direct (non-stop or one-stop) YQM-LGA service. The YQM-YYZ flight would arrive in the domestic gates of YYZ, then they would have to tow the plane to the transborder gate area. The passengers who arrived in YYZ would have to deplane, go to the USA area, clear immigration and customs (with their bags) and then re-board. This is no different than a regular connection in Toronto with different flight numbers.

I don't think CanJet is being misleading at all. If you read the newsrelease you can see that it says "regular scheduled service." The passengers do have to disembark and go through customs just like AC's flight to SYD that stops in HNL. But anyway the schedule from YQM-LGA is routed through YYZ and is as follows.

Fl 553 YQM-YYZ 7:20 - 8:45
Fl 202 YYZ-LGA 9:35-11:00
