How early to arrive for YUL domestic flight at 630am?

Flying business but I have an early flight tomorrow at YUL. How early do I need to show up? Does YUL offer priority screening for AC business class?

To be safe, I would be there at 5:30. You should have priority screening with an AC J class ticket.

I havent really noticed but I think it's only for super elite members, if you only have a business class ticket you will have to go through regular line unless you've got a Nexus membership, RAIC card, American express platinum credit card, Super Elite status, etc.

Either way departure at 6h30 means boarding at 5h55 probably. If you're already checked in 5h30 is fine, there shouldn't be much wait at security at that time of the day

EDIT: Yes you have priority screening with a business class ticket, my mistake**

I also wasn’t sure, but according to this priory security is available for paid domestic J: https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/hom ... vices.html

Be careful, as sometimes the priority screening line is closed. Happened to me a month ago at Toronto Pearson.

I'd arrive at 5am. You should have access to the lounge with a business class seat so if you have time to burn, just grab some breakfast there and relax.

What I plan for: 75 minutes.
When I usually arrive: 46 minutes.
