  1. Canada - Israel expand air services agreement

    If we refer back to the 2015 forecast for city pair opportunities in place before or during 2018, I think that Dakar and Beirut are the only two from Montreal that have yet to be started up. Perhaps Beirut will never happen. However everything else has been delivered according to plan. As others have stated, the AC international growth curve will start flattening out about now, though we now have Montreal-Tokyo beginning in June, and it wasn't shown in the 2015 presentation, and these 4 A330s would seem to offer additional growth possibilities. I remain impressed with AC.
  2. Canada - Israel expand air services agreement

    Thank you thenoflyzone for the link to the Air Canada 4Q17 results. The message about YUL is consistent with the growth proposal reinforced in 2015, and encouraging: Page 12, "Air Canada is… developing Montreal into a complementary trans-Atlantic hub… The airline’s Montreal hub not only links North America with key markets in France, but also positions Montreal as a premier gateway to the Atlantic. Given the improvements that are being made in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, the airline is able to build its network from the U.S. to provide increased connection flows to its international flights.”
  3. MaryRobert - 22, 22 étages

    Steve a raison SI aucune autre tour est érigée a l'est de Shannon et au sud de Wellington, car le Mary Robert deviendra en sorte un serre-livres des tours visibles a notre gauche en entrant via le viaduc CN ou l'autoroute.
  4. 975 Lucien-L'Allier - 45 étages

    Is it just me, or does the side view perspective resemble a grotesque aircraft seating plan?

  6. Vol direct Montréal-Beijing

    Oui tu as raison, mais bonne nouvelle pareil, si Air China reprend son horaire d'été accru.
  7. YUL - Diversions

    The LX14 ZRHJFK diversion took off a few minutes ago on 24R. Image courtesy dickiemoore.com The Alitalia should be departing about 4:30 p.m.
  8. Statistiques PAX

    My guesstimate is 18,406,000.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. . 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...
  12. 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...
  13. EI rumor to start YUL?

    Yes, sorry, my mistake.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
