    I guess Montreal-Baltimore is not resuming?  

    They've listed Montreal-Seattle as resuming May 15.. it's currently operating now, is there a plan to suspend it in early winter?

    Yes, SEA will be suspended from Jan 14th - May 1st.

    And no, Baltimore will not return for summer 23, the plane will instead be used for a 3rd YUL-DCA morning flight.

    Il y a 22 heures, ToxiK a dit :

    Lesquelles suggèrerais-tu?

    St Louis, Kansas city, Salt Lake City par exemple, mais je doute que le nombre pax y soit suffisant pour l'instant?

    Ramasser dans des plus petits marchés du NE US pour feeder nos routes internationales.

    The numbers don't justify any of these routes.

    O&D demand in 2018

    YUL-MCI 12,300

    YUL-PSP 4,688.

    YUL-STL 16,580

    YUL-SLC 15,190.

    Just for comparison's sake, SEA O&D was over 33,000 in 2018. YUL-SAN O&D was over 36,000. And in 2018, YUL didn't have non stop to either of these cities.

    Palm Springs, j'aimerais vraiment, c'est trop long/compliqué avec transfert.

    If there is one route in that list that is guaranteed to not happen, it is that one.
