For the all the grief posters here have given this company and even myself, here are some quick facts;

 

In 1996 there were 2 daily international Air Canada operated flights from Mirabel:

AC865/866 YOW-YMX-LHR B767-300

AC870/871 YMX-CDG A340-300

 

In 2016, as of now there will be 10 daily to Europe + 4 daily joint-venture services:

 

5 weekly Montreal-Lyon A330 (added in 2016)

Daily Montreal-Geneva A330 (added in 2009)

Daily Montreal-Rome Rouge B763 (added in 2009)

Daily Montreal-Brussels A330 (added in 2010)

Double daily Montreal-Paris

Daily Montreal-London B777

Daily Montreal-Frankfurt A330

Daily Montreal-Frankfurt A340 Lufthansa

So your confirming Lufthansa YUL-FRA daily next summer?

 

Is there still a chance we might see increases to any Rouge flights or new routes?

C'est un pas dans la bonne direction. Il faut continuer à croître et s'assurer de le faire au moins au même rythme que l'industrie, notre économie en dépend.

Well, they started last year at 5x weekly. They are currently 6x weekly this year. So i won't be surprised if they go daily in summer 2016.

They were supposed to be daily this summer but then changed their schedule to 6x a week. They fun thing about it at first was that on Saturday the flight was supposed to be operated buy a A346.

I wonder if they will change aircraft type for summer 16? A mix A343 and A346 would be nice.

Alex you ask tons of questions, but airlines are looking to make money. Lufthansa flies the A343 to Montreal because it has no first class, and has a higher density configuration with 275 seats. The only reason you see the A330 sometimes is due to lack of availability of A343s as they are going through a retro-fit.

 

Again Montreal is always going to get lower end equipment from airlines that has the lowest possible premium cabin seating due to nature of our market.

I know that. That's why we get high density Air France 777s and BA flies a 787. But one can dream.

 

That means that YUL-MUC is a tough market since there are no A343 based at MUC.

      More cars for busiest train line
      DAVID JOHNSTON, The Gazette
       
      The Montreal area's busiest commuter-rail line will get double-decker cars thanks to $120 million in new provincial money for suburban-train infrastructure.
       
      The introduction of double-decker service on the Montreal/Deux Montagnes line tops the priority list for the new three-year capital-spending plan of the Metropolitan Transit Agency.
       
      The plan is to be made public in the next two weeks.
      It will boost the number of double-decker cars in the MTA's 200-car fleet well above the current 22 - which are used on commuter lines to Rigaud and Blainville-St. Jérôme. The combined ridership on these new lines is barely two-thirds of the 31,000 carried daily on the Deux Montagnes line.
       
      By comparison, all 415 GO trains in the metropolitan Toronto commuter-rail network have double-decker cars.
       
      Renewal of the train fleet will put double-decker trains where they are needed most - on the busiest lines, and during rush-hour periods, MTA official Mélanie Nadeau said yesterday.
       
      Rush-hour trains on the Deux Montagnes line run well above 100-per-cent capacity now. Crowding is a sore point with users.
       
      The line carries 31,000 people a day. It runs from Central Station through St. Laurent, the West Island and Laval and into the St. Eustache-Deux Montagnes area.

      MONTREAL – The central-city administration didn’t open the door any further Monday night to preserving the 57-hectare Meadowbrook green space.
       
      But Alan DeSousa, vice-chairman of the city executive committee, didn’t slam it shut, either – not with about 375 anti-development protesters who converged on city hall trying to save the West End site hanging onto his words.
       
      “We’re ready to see what we can do to support a local community consensus” on Meadowbrook’s future, he told Patrick Asch of the Les Amis de Meadowbrook citizens’ coalition, which wants the entire site preserved as a public park.
       
      A Miami Beach condo developer, Michael Bedzow of Pacific Group Canada, wants to build 1,500 housing units on the site, which has been a private golf course for about a century. Meadowbrook hosts a broad range of wildlife, including foxes, rabbits and birds. It straddles the Lachine borough and Côte St. Luc, and is located near rail yards.
       
      Asch and other questioners tried repeatedly to get Mayor Gérald Tremblay to commit to preservation.
       
      But the mayor left it to DeSousa to do all the talking on his behalf.
       
      The site is already partly zoned for development.
       
      Last night’s occasionally loud crowd demonstrates broad support for the site’s preservation, Asch said.
       
      The site is “irreplaceable and one of the few natural green spaces left in Montreal,” he added. “Residents across the island will not accept the destruction of Meadowbrook.”
       
      Tremblay’s continuing silence on the issue is “deafening – and very suspicious,” Asch said.
       
      The site’s preservation is part of a May 2009 report that is to be voted on Thursday by Montreal Island’s agglomeration council. DeSousa said that report doesn’t deal with golf courses.
       
      On April 15, Karel Mayrand, Quebec executive director of the David Suzuki Foundation, wrote to Tremblay asking him to act “to preserve all of Meadowbrook as a nature park.”
       
      The Pacific Group housing plan – which features Plateau Mont Royal density levels – would represent “destruction for short-term private gain,” Mayrand added.
       
      Projet Montréal has already endorsed Meadowbrook’s preservation in full as a public park, said party leader Richard Bergeron.

      À l’orée du chic et convoité quartier Fontainebleau se dressera bientôt le projet résidentiel Élysée. Conciliant à merveille les commodités de la vie citadine et la splendeur de la nature bienfaisante, l’Élysée Fontainebleau est synonyme de raffinement et de modernité, de confort et de distinction.
       
      Grâce à l’esthétique à la fois classique et contemporaine de son architecture, l’Élysée Fontainebleau possède le charme bucolique des grandes demeures européennes. La présence d’un joli ruisseau bordé d’arbres matures apporte la touche distinctive à l’endroit. La piste cyclable passant à proximité et les nombreux parcs environnants lui donnent un air champêtre empreint de sérénité.
       
      Cette oasis de tranquillité est néanmoins fort bien desservie par le réseau de transport en commun et profite de la proximité de nombreux commerces de détail et de services ainsi que de grands axes routiers.
       
      Ce projet résidentiel, luxueux mais abordable, se caractérise, en outre, par sa conception soignée résolument moderne mettant à l’honneur des matériaux nobles dans chacune des unités.
       
      L’Élysée Fontainebleau, une adresse de prestige à découvrir.
