Re: Air Canada will add 4 more A330-300s in 2019

YUL/YVR-DUB will start with a Rouge 763 in May before switching to 333 in June. From what I am seeing on another forum, YUL-DUB remains on Rouge through June. Indeed, seems like the start date for AC818 is July 2 now. They are most likely using the 333 in June for transcon. Will be used on AC797/AC...

Are they converting to year round like they had planned last season or did Corsair beat them?

Re: TAP Portugal Plans Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Montreal in 2020

YUL is great, but AC & JV will be competing for that same feed with TP. This may mean loss of connectivity on AC in Canada, which may not make it so desirable. The O&D is in large part served by TS on this route, with AC probably having to rely on connecting traffic to fill up the route. TP...

Re: AC to start YUL-GRU, YVR-AKL and YYZ-UIO

AC rouge tried YVR-MCO 2 weekly I believe on the 763 and it lasted a whole season.
Same for YYZ-GIG, service was cancelled right after the olympics.

Re: AC to start YUL-GRU, YVR-AKL and YYZ-UIO

Air Canada's attention to Montreal in recent years has been high, traditionally a European gateway. Last year they started nonstops to Tokyo and now Sao Paulo, cities until now only flown from their main Toronto hub. Fully agree, plus Shanghai which was added in 2017. Including Lima in December 201...

My guess is that it's summer only, but with AC receiving their A220's next year, I'm gonna guess that we'll see those old mainline numbers back in service year round.

Both YUL-CDG and YUL-FCO are operated by the 450 seat 77W.

Re: 'We've just grown too big, too fast:' - WestJet's CEO

We can all agree that WS presence at YUL is pathetic!!

No wonder AC dominates at YUL. What's worrying is they can't even make YUL-YVR work year round or FLL (probably the single largest US market).

Why such long waits from the arrivals in Santiago to departures, 2 hours seems very long. In these times of 787 why can't each city have their own nonstop to Toronto ? Operating tag flights seems very 1970's when deep Latin America was the king of tags, RIO-EZE-SCL was very common. IT sounds like A...

I think they'll just let WS take over.
