Re: The MSY thread - 2018

MSY-YYZ was just under 70 PDEW for the year, so it's not surprise that with connections there is room for a seasonal second daily service. YUL has been growing nicely though and I've been hoping that a Mobile C-Series FAL might provide enough of a bump in traffic to get something like a 4 weekly ser...
