Lufthansa code-shares on Air Canada’s daily Boeing 747-400 service on YUL-FRA.
British Airways operates one daily flight with a 747-200 (BA095/096) if I’m correct.
Air France has been servicing Montreal for quite a long time:
1946 Air France gets the approval for flights to Montreal among other cities in North America
5 October 1950 Air France starts the New York-Montreal-Paris-Rome route
25 October 1953 Air France starts the twice weekly Chicago-Montreal-Paris route
20 October 1995 The Air France flight from Montreal is the first international flight to land at Chicago O’Hare
2 February 1960 Air France inaugurates the Los Angeles-Montreal-Paris route with a Boeing 707
24 April 1960 Air France upgrades the Chicago-Montreal-Paris to jet service with the Boeing 707
10 June 1970 Air France introduces the Boeing 747-100 on the Chicago-Montreal-Paris route
May 1998 Air France introduces the Boeing 777-200ER on the CDG-YUL route
March 2000 Air France introduces the Boeing 747-400 on the second daily flight (one daily flight in winter)
Also I think Austrian Airlines started the VIE-YUL route this year (early May), and operates a twice-weekly flight using an A310.
On 2 June 2000, Tarom started a service from Bucharest using an A310.
Air Canada operates an A330-200 on CDG since 18 October 1999. They have also used the Boeing 747-400 and A340-300.
They also operate on LHR and FRA if I’m correct.
Anyone would have some additional information? What operators on this market have pulled out from Montreal?
