I haven't seen any announcement, but AA seems to be ramping up its schedule to Montreal. In addition to its daily flight recently begun from Miami, they now seem to have added a daily to Dallas, plus a second daily flight from both Charlotte and Philadelphia. 

Can anyone confirm whether this is new scheduling or just a blip?

While I cannot confirm the scheduling, this would be consistent with a return to normalcy for AA at YUL.  They had mainline service to MIA and DFW prior to the pandemic (multiple dailies to MIA) along with multiple daily Charlotte and Philadelphia flights (plus some ORD and JFK).

I can ask their ops tomorrow (right across the hall). I think both AA and UA will be at 12 flights a day ex-YUL in June, DL 11. AA and DL will have three mainlines, UA will likely remain an RJ station for now.

Noting how AA and DL have historically served YUL with mainline or a mainline/regional mix, but that UA has (never?) offered mainline.     At different times, Northwest, US Air, Continental and Eastern also had mainline service at YUL, but that ceased when they were individually absorbed into the current big three. So does anyone know if 'UA no mainline at YUL' is due to them being a longstanding AC partner at our longstanding AC hub, or are there other UA-specific factors at play?

It’s odd AA & DL does while UA doesn’t especially considering YUL is a major Star Alliance hub.. is anything I would have expected mainline from them and regional from the other two. Now that they e developed a joint venture with AC I’m hoping they’ll code share YUL-LAX, YUL-SFO and maybe some other trans continental route with mainline aircraft. So weird the other two do and they only fly short hops. Everything seems backwards from what it should logically be. 
 

Maybe UA mainline is the global carrier that we speculated on a few weeks ago that is rumored to come to Montreal…

AC doesn’t have US hubs. Hub and spoke still rules in North America. Don’t expect any long-distance flying from the US carriers if they can code share, basically getting money for not doing anything. It’s the same reason why the US carriers are cutting their 5th Freedom flights in Asia, and downsizing or eliminating hubs.

I mean, Narita was one of the busiest widebody hubs operated by a US carrier anywhere as recently as 15 years ago, when Northwest Airlines served 19 different destinations: Bangkok, Beijing, Busan, Detroit, Guam, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Manila, Minneapolis, Portland, Saipan, San Francisco, Seattle Tacoma, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, and Taipei. It was a sight to behold. Now, Delta serves seven US cities out of Haneda, with only Manila served on Delta metal, out of ICN.
