Really? Faro? Too many retired Brits in the Algarve, surely? I would rather go to say, Setubal or Evora, or to the North, say OPO. Either way, I happen to speak the language, which makes life easy in Portugal. But alas, only for holidays.

YAM-YUL. They can make it a milk run via YSB & YYB and schedule it on a Cessna Caravan for all I care. Just give me some way to get the heck out of here when Pearson is snowed in yet again, or when the last YYZ-bound flight of the day decides to go mechanical on us.

Other than that, YHZ/YYT to any of CGN, DUS, FRA, in that order of preference. Could be nominally within the range of the A220, but if we're asking for the moon anyway I'll send AC's 7M8s to the desert and get them to buy the A321LR for this route instead.

YYZ-OSL. The CPH flight is not too well timed for onwards travel, and they do not fully cooperate with SK for pricing.

YSC - ... any AC hub. Largest city in North America without commercial air service. 400,000+ population basin. 2 Universities.
Nearest airport is YUL is a 2 hour drive + traffic.

Doesn't TS have more seat pitch than Rouge (in general) which would surely be flying this route if it existed?

Why couldn't the YOW pax get off?
It would require the aircraft to park at an available international gate.
Which needs ground and inside staff... more than a gas crew.
Picking through the aircraft for bags.
Taking an hour.
Missing the chance to gas-and-go on a moments notice to get to YYZ.
Further screwing over any other connecting PAX.
And further screwing over the use of the A/C that day.

AC has done that route over Christmas in the past.
I will take YVR-YYG. Escpecially with pods in a C series!

Doesn't that flight usually stop in YYZ and sometimes YHZ to pick up pax?

That's not going to happen .. in fact YUL is getting more and more flights and we like it like this!

Adding a vote to YVR - IAD (or similar) as a second choice, but first wish would be year-round YVR - BOS

About Montreal not even worth talking about it, but Quebec city surely should get more flights than Halifax, with double the population of Halifax and half the unemployment rate, the city is booming .. unlike Halifax
jasdou and DNAwizard like this.

FAO is a very busy airport. The problem is they are all European discount airlines or tour operators. The number of flights that are operated by a network airline and have North American connections is limited.
