  1. A very noticeable change at YUL in the past couple of years is the upgauge from Dash-8-200s to the 300s and Q400s on all sorts of Jazz sectors. Ottawa, Quebec City, Bathurst, Moncton, Charlottetown, the available seat numbers have gone way up, so more opportunities for connectivity to mainline. (I have no info on how much LF has gone up, though).

    Moi non plus. Lorsque je clique sur le lien photo, il me ramène à la page d'accueil.

    Good point. ".. as high end" is relative however I imagine Broccolini would want to show off a quality boutique-style befitting its siting on the edge of Square Victoria. Remember, the last occupant of the existing building (until 2013?) was a Domino's franchise, so things can only get better now...
  4. Does anyone know why the Frankfurt-Toronto flight was on the ground at Trudeau for approx 45 minutes this evening?
  5. Pas nécessairement une mauvaise nouvelle pour les lignes aériennes qui mettent l'accent sur les forfaits vacances/loisirs. Ce qui démarque les ULCC c'est le 'unbundling' tel que décrit dans l'annonce. Le billet EasyJet/veuling/Ryanair se vend pour 49 euros, mais ensuite c'est 50 euros la valise, 8 euros le sandwich whatever. Pour le marché nolisé destination soleil (p.e. Cayo Coco) les Rouge/Transat/Sunwing auront juste a initier leur propre 'unbundling', en autres mots offrir du 'option price building' aux passagers. Oublie pas les frais d'atterissage ici au Canada. Comme le dit si bien mtlurb, 'taxes and fees would be 70-100$ each way. That's why flying in Canada is so expensive.' A part quelques prix promo chocs qui seront offerts à la naissance d'un WJ low-cost, je me demande comment WJ va se démarquer... Oshawa-Abbotsford à 129$ l'aller? Lethbridge-St. Hubert 109$ le retour? On ajoute la valise, le menu bistro, les frais aéroportuaires et les taxes et c'est rendu dans les 800$ round-trip. And oh yeah, the taxi to Oshawa.

    alissone007, from your description of events it sounds (pardon the pun) as though the Centre Bell will have to modify their vent system. I'm not an HVAC expert but I assume they could install sound and wind deflector walls just like you see at airport maintenance bases.

    Entièrement d'accord avec toi, acpnc

Perhaps the rep was implying that the financing bundle was able to support construction of a 50 storey tower? Perhaps it was to be a 50 storey tower 'collée' to the arena, just like the TDC? * **

  10. Frankto, thank you for sharing the link, very enjoyable. (Thank you to Dickie Moore Rentals too!)*
  11. Exactly. Landside vs airside. If the terminal is sited at the current de-ice/fire hall, you could have a high-frequency shuttle between terminals in a tunnel parallel to the REM tunnel... Alternately, the large strip of land north of 06L/24R, parallel to Chemin St-Francois, is also an option, as the REM right of way could also be used to put in a high-frequency shuttle to/from the main passenger terminal. As for closing 10/28, I don't think that's going to happen, but please feel free to prove me wrong
  12. *Agreed, more or less. A second terminal with its own separate road access would be like the Dorval/Mirabel era, only this time 'Mirabel' would be closer. I think the Zurich model could work, with dedicated transit between terminals for those already checked in. So I'm not sure how a REM scenario would work to separate landslide and airside passengers.
  13. 15 303 764 through the end of November, so I believe I've underestimated.
