Connecting in YYZ vs YUL en route to YVR

I'm planning to fly WAS -> YUL or YYZ -> YVR this spring. Any advantages to connecting in either airport? I have not been to YYZ in years and have never been to YUL.

Family of four, all with Nexis (although the kids don't have the eye-scan registered) if that matters. Likely flying in Y. Any tips appreciated.

If you go through YUL, you can fly on the A330 which still has a decent seat width and a 2-4-2 seat configuration. I think most would prefer that in economy over the high density 787/777 configurations or narrowbody aircraft that typically fly YYZ-YVR.

YUL Pros
  • Earn more miles
  • Smaller airport will likely mean a shorter walk between flights
  • Family can practice their French

YYZ Pros
  • Shorter total distance flown
  • Greater choice of flights in both directions so if you mis-connect there will be more options to get to YVR/home
  • More wide body flights to YVR (a pro and con as mentioned by ctbarron)
  • Better lounge (though some here will disagree)
