British Airways has announced that Montreal is to join its network of Boeing 787 routes from Sunday 29 March 2015.
Montreal will be the third Canadian city to be served by the Boeing 787, after Toronto and Calgary.
BA’s single daily flight from London Heathrow to Montreal (BA 95 and the return BA 94) will be operated by the 787, replacing a Boeing 777 in the summer season and a Boeing 767 in the winter season.
In terms of capacity, the change from a 777 to a 787 in the summer season will result in 13 fewer Club World business class seats and 49 fewer World Traveller economy seats on each flight.
Other current BA 787 routes include Austin (to be replaced by a Boeing 777), Chennai, Chengdu, and New York Newark.
Air Canada also flies to Montreal from London Heathrow. Air Transat also flies to Montreal from London Gatwick.
