^As expected already, the B787 is not going to be a game changer for Air Canada.

There were talks about a new hotel getting built at Pearson airport. Any recent word on that and does anyone remember what hotel it was? It was going to be built on the airport grounds if I remember correctly - similar to how the Sheraton is part of the airport.

Isn't that Sheraton quite new considering it opened around 1995ish?

You mean the Alt Hotel? It's part of the Le Germain group and is being built in the Viscount lot.

Yeah, I think that's it. Thanks for replying! I found this web site with a rendering. I'm not sure if you all have seen it already:

Any chance to score YYZ-Nice anytime in the future? I can see that Montreal is linked up with Nice.

I'm still waiting for ET to make their announcement. Seems to be taking forever for YYZ to get new airlines over the past year and a bit.

It's been a few year's since I've been at YYZ. Have any other buildings gone up in that parking lot in the past 5 year's?

I don't think so. There are still older hotels on the airport strip area. Most of them show up in the decades old pictures from airliners data base. So most of them should be torn down.

No news about that. Now something weird is going on with Aerosvit. Thus, it's hard to predict what will be in the future.
