With the large Asian population in Canada especially around Toronto you could fly YYZ-HKG-any where in Asia with one stop. Cathay Pacific also flies the route if i am not mistaken with a 777W.

I detected identical factor concerning T3 being connected to T1 within the future. you are right concerning the baseball diamond Terminal too being employed probably as a legitimate satellite terminal. If that is the case they must do identical as Atlanta and build a "subway-like" system from the most terminal to the satellites.

Right on. I am fairly sure they get quite a few Filipinos on their flights. PAL will always have hard time competing on Manila bound marketshare.

There is a market between Canada and the Philippines but Manila is a very low yielding market. More low yielding than the other known low yielding markets such as India and Thailand.

I was looking at this presentation from Air Canada and it shows Air Canada flying from YYZ to Accra, Lagos, and Johannesburg by 2018. Also shows Dakar from Montreal. Does anyone know anything about this?

Sorry I can't post any links.

Here it is:
http://www.aircanada.com/en/about/me...r_day_2015.pdf

AC won't reveal all its plans, and I suspect they are planning to open routes to a city not mentioned on the map on page 37. Previously they made no indication of starting YYZ-DXB.

I also suspect, that once AC receives its 737 MAX, it will open new routes from YYZ/YUL to smaller cities in western Europe, which are currently nonviable with a 767. South America as far south as Lima is also within range. That will be a real game changer.

Toronto Star Excerpt
Pearson workers fear good jobs in peril over contract-flipping
Workers and union leaders say unfair working conditions at Pearson threaten to derail a world class airport
Jun 11, 2015

Is Pearson Airport becoming the “Walmart of the skies?”

As unrest builds over lay-offs and low wages, another 300 airport workers are set to lose their jobs. The culprit, unions say, is a practice known as contract-flipping.

Hector Silva, 53, is bracing himself to lose the job he’s held for more than a decade.

As a fuel serviceman at Pearson, he is the latest casualty of what critics call contract flipping: when contracts are awarded to different service providers every few years, often resulting in mass job losses.

That’s what awaits Silva and hundreds of his colleagues when Aircraft Service International Group takes over fuelling services from Allied Aviation this fall.

If they’re lucky, the workers will land a job with the new company. Silva, a father of three, is a strong candidate for re-hire given his lengthy experience as a fueler — but only, it seems, if he is willing to take a 30 per cent pay cut.

He recently attended a job fair at the airport, where ASIG told him his seniority would earn him $14.50 with the new company. His hourly salary is currently almost $21.

The rest : http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2015...-flipping.html

Took the UP Express for the first time the other day, only to Bloor (Dundas West Station). Overall impressions is that is was very good. Modern, clean, efficient. It's a great addition to the airport and the city in general.

$22 for a non-Presto fare to Bloor, which is far cheaper than a cab to the same spot. So even for two people, it's still a better deal. And door-to-door is about 10 minutes faster.

Interesting little factoid about Aer Lingus' service to YYZ:

http://blog.aerlingus.com/

Quote:
Recent research has revealed the primary reason Aer Lingus guests travel to Toronto is to visit friends and relatives (VFR), reflecting the strong Irish diaspora connections. Toronto came out top for VFR traffic with almost half, 48% of our guests, confirming their primary purpose for travel was to visit relatives.

Extra flights have been added over the Easter holidays on Saturday 19th and 26th March, with an additional 700 seats available for sale. The extra flights will serve the strong demand over the Easter holiday period.

New $82.5 million island airport pedestrian tunnel ‘a win for Torontonians’.

and some reports of South African Airways planning JNB-YYZ..... from a thread on airliners.net....

Quote:
With the launch of this ACC-IAD sector, there was mention that SAA plans to open flights to Toronto via ACC. I know they've applied at SACAA already for a 3 weekly JNB-YYZ route, not sure if done on the Canadian side though.

Considering that JNB is a high altitude airport I don't think it would be possible to have non-stop routes between Johannesburg and Toronto. Even South African Airways other routes to New York JFK and Washington Dulles usually have a stop in either Dakar or Accra first. That being said though South African Airlines was considering establishing a hub in West Africa so it would benefit travelers heading to that region.
