If it is due to the strike, why is YYZ the only (or one of the only) stations affected?
|Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 4):|
It was probably a route where it was most difficult to rebook passengers on cancelled flights with most flights this time of year close to full.
News reports say AF cancelled 7% of longhaul flights, 9% of domestic flights and 27% of medium haul flights on Saturday.

How does that make sense?
|Quoting whywhyzee (Reply 8):|
Of the AF-KLM hubs, AMS seems to be the more important from that side, CDG may see more traffic, but AMS has KLM as the dominant player, though TS, Arke and AC also serve AMS from AF/KL hubs at CDG and AMS:
1. In pure size the two hubs do not differ all that much (+/- 10%):
Airport Passenger data last 12 months May 2015 - Apr. 2016:
- AMS 60.191.433 pax
- CDG 66.060.992 pax
2. In transfer traffic the two hubs differ much more substantially - Transfer Pax Year 2015:
- AMS 23.032.592 pax
- CDG 11,416,397 pax
So though AMS is a smaller airport than CDG, AMS is over 2x larger in transfer traffic.
And....just to update you on YYZ-AMS operations in S16:
- KLM 12x week
- Jet Airways 7x week
- AC 7x week
- TS 4x week
- TUI 2x week

It sure was the right choice for the passengers & that is better than scrambling for middle seats on TATL flights, spread out over multiple routings for a plane load of passengers. Borrowing an A-345 for a few days seems to be the logical choice vs 100's upon 100's of passengers being inconvenienced all to one city.
I'm sure YYZ is as important to AF as are many of AF's other destinations with a single daily frequency.

I've seen the same HiFly A340 on a CDG - COO flight also
Next trip : BOD - AJA - BOD - AMS - AUH - CDG - BOD - WAW - KRK - WAW - BOD - NCE - BOD - MRS - BOD - GVA - BOD - NCE - BOD - ZRH - ATH - JTR - JMK - HER - ATH - FRA - BOD - AMS - SIN - DPS - LOP - DPS - LBJ - DPS - SIN - AMS - BOD
But how do yields compare? I would guess that AF yield is higher from YYZ than YUL as there is probably more premium business traffic connecting beyond CDG.
Montreal is the worlds second largest french speaking city after Paris, that fact alone assures plenty of traffic. One thing people from Quebec are known for is connections to the old country, so it wouldn't surprise me if there is a decent amount of business traffic between the two. That being said, it is most certainly a predominantly leisure route, but sheer volume alone might make up for the nature of the route, there is likely premium demand by way of there being so much demand. Some of it is bound to be premium.
