They're adding weekly flights to Santo Domingo as well with the 737-800.

Looks like Lisbon is year round now from YUL as well, Flights on Thursday.

Should be a matter of time before TAP announces YUL.

Not before 2019 in all likelihood. (once enough A321neoLR's are delivered)

Speaking of neo's, Wow Air recently received their first A320neo (reg: TF-NEO). They have been utilizing it extensively to YUL on this side of the pond ! It rotates at CPH or LGW, depending on the day.

Just noticed that there are now direct flights between Melbourne and Vancouver with Air Canada. Right on.

Just home from Buenos Aires. Now there's a place just begging for better airport infrastructure and capacity and routes. I used Jorge Newbery (AEP) and Ministro Pistarini (EZE). Just 20,000,000 between the two for a city of +12 million people. EZE (international flights) was modern more or less, but lacked a lot of amenities. The coolest thing at AEP (domestic)was the park sticking out into the River Plate. I don't know how, but they manage +11,000,000 passengers with a single runway.

I also was in Mendoza; MDZ was a small but nice little airport. Felt like Victoria (YYJ). Two cool things in Mendoza: Vancouver's old trollybuses in red livery, and at the airport, a squadron of old air-force fighters taking off in front of us (I was told they were recently upgraded Lockheed Martin A-4s).

Oh, and I almost forgot the 1st world complaining: Mexico City to BA was another torture-fest for this guy, doubly so with a window seat but clouds the whole way, both ways. You more frequent fliers will be happy to know, I kept smiling anyway - the whole way through.

That's not really that amazing, considering that last year, LGW served over 43M passengers with a single runway.

Wouldn't shock me. If demand picks up, why not.

Like i've said numerous times, just goes to show that a city's population has no correlation to the number of passengers that pass through it's airports.
