Who would fly this route ????

No wonder Mrs KDS777 and I don't travel anywhere in our own country, yet we continue to rack up status and fly to other countries on other carriers.

Want to go to Quebec City over Christmas. Now we realise going anywhere during major holidays warrants up charges........but........when the cheapest return ticket in the back of the bus is $1,000 and goes YYC-YEG-YYZ-YUL-YQB or something similar with 2 or 3 stops over 24 hours..........

Who buys this itinerary ? Seriously ?

[rant over]

I had a similar reaction when looking to fly to YQB from YQM/YHZ last May, though my situation was not so ridiculous as yours. I would have only needed to make 1 connection in YUL, but most routings were around 6 hours. Add 1-1.5 hours to get to the airport and the need to arrive early for the flight and I decided to just drive the 8 hours instead.

And in Decembers odds are not good on making every connection. Like anything going through YYZ in Dec-Mar.

Its like a mini EYW itin.
