same day stand by on connections?

How suicidal is a 75 minutes domestic-transborder connection at YYZ at 7:15am on a friday these days? Nexus and carry-on only of course...

On the 150-ish YUL-YYZ connections that I've had to take at in my life so far, I think that *thinks* 3 were on time :-:

I always try to have at least 2 hours, but this time we wanted to try and catch the 8:30 flight and now I feel very very stupid lol

Can we same-day-standy on the 5:30 jazz flight at all (ticket says you can't same day standy on connections)?

While we're at it, is there any trick to booking online the YUL-YYZ segment the night before the 6-7-8 am flight out of YYZ?

If your flight into YYZ is on time, 75 minutes is plenty if you have Nexus. Only bottleneck will be security, assuming you are E/SE or an Amex holder, that won't be much of an issue

75m is fine for Nexus/Carry-On, assuming you actually have 75m when you leave the plane. Just hope you don't get nude-o-scoped...

I don't think they check your ticket for continuations past YYZ - same day free standby rules apply for Rapidair.
