I don't think weather is an issue at all. Extreme heat is as equally unpleasant as Montreal's extreme cold. Human rights will certainly play a large part. As pretty as Doha may be from far away, it's a very tiered society with respect to country of origin. I don't disagree that Canada's recent foreign policy moves may hurt them vis-a-vis other Arab countries that may have not voted in Qatar's favour in the past, but I don't expect many western European countries to vote in Qatar's favour. Maybe the UK, because Qatar owns half of the country.

Regardless, my point was that I think QR was planning ahead for this when establishing their route to YUL.

And speaking of the LO shots, anyone lucky enough to catch "LOT's" 777's landing at YYZ?
I looked it up on my phone, and they sent Euro Atlantic B736ER that day. The pictures were taken with my old Canon TI1. It's already three year old cemera. I bought it from the shopping channel because they included the canon bag, and some other stuff worth $100 dollars. On top of that, they would send you five smaller payments so you don't have to dish out the whole amount at once. I think they have a sweet deal for the Canon T5i which is the same camera, but it has better sensor. Have a look if you need one.

Well, that was the evening peak rush hour. A handful of european departures and some south American departures as well. Having that in mind, I would give it a world class rating.

Btw I saw Turkish B773ER parked very close to the 427 highway. She looked amazing.

Btw some bad news... Looks like it's the end for the local buttonville airport. The real estate developer Cadillac Fairview purchased the land to develop it into a shopping mall. So the facility is expected to be closed for good during the summer of 2014. Lets just say it will be one sad day.

Beach club atmosphere? Noir, the Persian Gulf countries are culturally very different from Southern Europe. Qatar is liberal by regional standards, and there has been a growing beachy-hotel-sun industry, but it's not exactly like the coasts of Spain/Greece/Croatia/Portugal/Italy/France/Cyprus. It's still somewhat conservative, and the atmosphere is more Vegas/Dubai than Mediterranean Europe. And it gets hot.

I'm sad to see that airport close for good. Where will all those general aviation aircraft, hangars, and flights go once it's closed? Plus I wonder how large (hectare-wise) Buttonville Airport is because to me, that looks a bit too large for a shopping mall (unless of course, several one- to two-story buildings will be built in the process), and I then wonder how much of the space will be made into parking lots.

The flying academy will be relocated to nearby Oshawa airport which is about 50 miles east of Toronto. Well, they are also looking into opening up a casino. From what I see the airport is about 1100M x 1100M square meters.

buried in today's news article about Canadian PM Harper's visit to Peru, news of a new Canada-Peru bilateral air agreement...

http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/05...-announcement/

Quote:
In their joint statement, the two leaders announced an agreement to expand air transport between Canada and Peru that will mean more flights to more places in each country.
What's interesting is that Peru was one of the last countries to still have an old existing bilateral air agreement from long ago - I believe it actually dates from the 1950's - that denied foreign carriers access to YYZ, and only gave them access to YUL or YVR. With this new revision, they will almost surely have YYZ rights available, if they want it...maybe you will see LAN Peru here, or maybe LAN Chile operating SCL-LIM-YYZ...the open skies agreement between Canada and Chile allows enroute stops with 5th freedoms, iirc..

That's interesting. LAN Peru or LAN Chile can operate either a B767-300ER or B787 from either SCL or LIM in the process... but hey, does AC already operates a YYZ-LIM flight?

Funny you mention that, because when LAN Chile pulled out a few years ago, I remember reading that they were interested in restarting via LIM. The JFK routing was silly in my opinion. Here's hoping...

Perhaps a next step: how about upgrading some of AC's more popular routes to South America, including more services to Brazil or upgrading capacity to Mexico City or Bogota?

I'm thinking, though:

• Will AC's A321s be able to fly between YYZ and MEX (range-wise)? If demand is higher, will it send a B763?
• What other destination/s in Brazil, Colombia, and several Central American nations can be served by AC?
• How many more flights can AC mount to its popular long-haul destinations, including GIG, GRU, EZE, LIM, and SCL?
