  1. Statistiques PAX

    Il parait qu'ADM prévoit accueilir son 18 millionième passager le 22 décembre ! https://www.instagram.com/p/BckBjPsHgrL/?taken-by=mtltrudeau It appears that ADM is forecasting Dec 22nd as the day the 18 millionth passenger of the year will fly in or out of YUL!
  2. Baltimore/Pittsburgh avec Air Canada (May 2018)

    Cleveland? Do you mean Cincinnati? From the mid-80s DL had a regional hub at Cincinnati and US Air had a hub at Pittsburgh. After that, Continental developed a regional hub at Cleveland. For whichever of those three cities, a flight from Montreal may have been full but most of the passengers were not flying there as a final destination, but rather to transfer to an onward destination.
  3. . The real issue (as I see it) would be that whether the extra costs brings the LCC trip total to $590 or $790 or $990, the mainlines have to match that in a price bucket, and unless the mainlines are earning extra new revenue from the front cabin, the net revenue per flight veers towards non-profitability, which is a threat to retaining mainline carriers when they could deploy the aircraft somewhere else that offers more revenue. Yes consumer A ends up with great low fares to Orly but consumer B loses their network connections to the mainline carrier's 'beyond' cities like Florence, Sevilla, Dortmund, you name it...
  4. I agree. The risk is that LX BA LH lose main cabin sales to the LCC-oriented carriers and YUL becomes even less attractive to them. Unless the arrival of more LCC seat volume actually grows the market. Yes true but after taxes, government fees and the LCC extras that one is inclined to pay for (seat selection, checked luggage and food-beverage among others) the real cost for each round-trip goes way north of $600-$700. I want the premium carriers AND the LCCs to thrive at YUL but unless the market grows...
  5. EI rumor to start YUL?

    Yes, sorry, my mistake.
  6. EI rumor to start YUL?

    Yes I see what you're saying however to do so they would have been pulling a 757 off an existing sector. I'm guessing (again) that they would regularly evaluate different city pairs and determine that YUL was not as good at revenue generation as another existing route where this hypothetical 757 was already allocated, therefore the 757 stayed where it was. I think it's important to consider that TS and now rouge are the players on YULDUB, both of whom have a lower cost base than EI.
  7. EI rumor to start YUL?

    Alex, with all due respect, it's now two decades since international scheduled services moved back to YUL, during which time I'm certain (though to be fair I have no proof) that Are Lingus must have evaluated YUL and opted to deploy their fleet elsewhere. So I wouldn't characterize them as having 'dropped the ball on this one', rather that it just didn't fit into their plans.
  8. YUL - 38, 38 étages

    L'espace pour la maison manquante serait idéal comme entrée de construction pour la deuxiême tour YUL... Pis ensuite la maison se fait batir. Just an idea...
  9. Tour des Canadiens 2 - 51 étages

    Vue de cette perspective, la passerelle du parc c'a l'air d'un hommage brutaliste à l'ancienne autoroute Bonaventure.
  10. (NB this is all hypothetical...) If about a third of those 30 psgrs were J fares or derivatives, or if the main cabin fares sold were the equivalent of those J fares plus some Y, and everyone wanted to fly at the time that the single daily flight was offered, then sure, why not, assign a J/Y cabin 705 to the sector. But I suspect otherwise. Thinking about how Porter Q400s fly YYZ-Myrtle Beach, perhaps cost effective to use a feeder Q400, except... It's a long sector for a single class of service at the lower speed, perhaps ok for the Myrtle Beach leisure tickets but perhaps not for the business shuttle scene. I will concede that the Q400 gate-to-gate time would still be less than the current option of having to change planes en route.
  11. Statistiques PAX

    Noting that in the 2014-2017 period YUL's international numbers (excluding Transborder) continue to surge ahead of domestic. In fact the spread is increasing: Four Augusts ago the difference between domestic and international was 20,000 more international pax, now it's 93,000 more. This may sound like a stupid question, but does anyone know how a hypothetical Jazz/Sky Regional feed passenger flying Halifax-Montreal-Geneva-Montreal-Halifax is counted by ADM? If transit traffic is counted only once per direction of travel, is this passenger counted by origin market (domestic) or by destination market (int'l)? Or does ADM capture this passenger twice in each direction (arrival from YHZ+departure to GVA+arrival from GVA+departure to YHZ)? Because of course in terminal planning it's the total number of people (and their origin/destination within the terminal airside and/or landside) that really counts. While at Trudeau, the Halifax-Montreal-Geneva passenger is one person airside, not two.
  12. I wish them well but this isn't even financed yet. YHM is a decent secondary airport for the Golden Horseshoe and they'd sure like to have some planes at the gates deserted years ago by Westjet. If I were to compare Jetlines vs a WestJet ULCC, on paper the WestJet version has defined a niche (the cross-border airport traveler) whereas Jetlines is just tossing about the major ROC cities and a couple of sunspots.

    It was less than a decade ago that we were thrilled to hit a million passenger month. We're on the cusp of doubling that. This is really very encouraging.
  14. Échangeur Turcot

    Pour le projet Turcot/R136, les caméras du québec511 sont une bonne source d'images en direct. En ce moment le caméra Atwater nous offre une perspective sur la construction du pont pour la sortie réservée aux transports collectifs: http://www.quebec511.info/diffusion/en/camera/AfficherCamera.aspx?id=3450&srcUrl=/en/cameras/montreal/
  15. Eh bien alors vous m’avez très très mal compris. Relisez mes textes. Mot pour mot, j’avais écrit: -‘the new city pairs are developed because they make economic sense.’ -‘Air Canada cherche à remplir ses appareils là ou la demande existe et quand ceux qui font la demande ont les moyens de dépenser pour un billet qui donne un rendement adéquat au transporteur.’ J’étais même en accord avec vous à propos de Reykjavik. Alors d’ou sortez vous le concept des ‘faveurs indues’? Va fouiller un peu dans mes textes, vous verrez que depuis belle lurette le succès d’Air Transat, entreprise d’ici, me tient également à coeur. J'ai supposé à tort que vous compreniez la sémantique. Un ‘décret ministériel’ pour signifier que c’était ‘imposé par Québec’. My bad.
