Their 767 was the last plane I saw before concerns over Covid became real. I remember thinking then things are really going to change and it might be the last time I see them. Great seeing them back.

Delta has unloaded all YUL-LGA flights from the system until April, so it seems they’ll continue to make use of the modified slot waivers that come into effect in November until the end of March.

What are modified slot waivers and what does this mean for YUL?

At slot controlled airports in the US, the FAA issued a waiver in the early stages of the pandemic and has been allowing airlines to sit on their slots without operating the minimum required number of flights — currently 80% at LGA and DCA. The waiver has been renewed from November until the end of March, but only for “international” flights. The largest airline operating out of LGA is Delta, with over 500 slots; during the peak of summer they were operating upwards of 300 domestically, but as of November 1, they will need to operate more than 400 a day to comply with the slot regulations, even during the traditionally slower “shoulder seasons” (November and January). The only relief (as they begin to hire new crew and workers and build up capacity again) is to make use of the modified waiver and suspend fights that had traditionally been flown “internationally” in previous years.

Thanks. So, they can continue on a reduced number of international flights without losing their allocated slots. Which means that they suffer no penalty for cancelling, among other destinations, Montreal. You used quotation marks for the word ‘ internationally’.  Surely YUL is considered to be an international flight, no?

Apologies for these naive questions.
