Re: YTZ 44 Slot Increase by 2023 According to 2018 Master Plan Draft

I have found PD to be great for traveling to Northern Ontario (YAM in particular). As for growth, I would like to see PD add DTW, IND, and PHL. I would assume that those 3 markets would be larger than PIT in terms of route potential. As for service to YXU and YKF, those routes would ideally be serv...
