The bureau said the agreement would “protect and preserve competition” on the 14 key, high demand routes between Canada and the U.S. that, in part, led to the bureau challenging the partnership in June 2011. On those routes, the carriers will be prohibited from coordinating prices, the number of seats available at each price, pooling revenue or costs, or otherwise sharing commercially sensitive information, the bureau said. The contentious routes include flights from Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa and Vancouver to several U.S. destinations, including Houston, Chicago, Washington, and others. The carriers will, however, be able proceed with their joint venture, which would, in effect, merge their flight operations, on other routes between the two countries, the bureau said.
