EDIT: Following specified routes originally reported with error. These are the corrected adjustment, corrected on Friday 22JUN18

  • Montreal – Orlando "eff 02NOV18 A319 operating, replacing A320"
    This service is operated by Air Canada rouge, not Air Canada Mainline
  • Montreal – Puerto Plata "Service discontinued"
    Original report filed on 19JUN18 is in correct, and should be corrected as Air Canada rouge continues to operate Montreal – Puerto Plata 3 times a week, with Airbus A319. Ottawa – Puerto Plata service will be discontinued in winter 2018/19 season
  • Montreal – Punta Cana "eff 18DEC18 Increase from 2 to 3 weekly, A320 operating "
    This should be corrected as Ottawa – Punta Cana routing. Montreal – Punta Cana will see reduction from 8 to 7 weekly, 767 operating instead of A321/767
