Right now I doubt that there are any such plans, but in the long term I am sure that they will want to start a fligth like that. I'm sure after the merger is finished there will be a large number of new route/aircraft announcements. Although PIA already has an almost daily flight to YYZ with the 747, so maybe AC will choose to have YUL flights.

I doubt if any North American airlines are in any hurry to fly to Pakistan. I think the reasons have been made clear by people in other posts. However with the large number of Pakistanis emigrating to Canada, it may happen.

Do AC still fly to Bombay?

No AC no longer flies to India, that route was dropped because most of the pax on that flight were getting off in London and not continuing on to India, and those that did were rarely in Business class...where AC makes most of it's money on long haul routes.
