August 27, 1998: If you want to leave Quebec City on Sunday and are having difficulty getting a flight reservation out of Quebec City because of lack of availability, here is a tip from a SIGDOC attendee: "Most airlines will book "open jaw" tickets that let you fly into one airport and out from another. Thus you could fly into Quebec on non-busy Monday/Tuesday, take the train to Montreal Sunday and fly out from Montreal Sunday (getting a Saturday night stay). The train takes about three hours from Montreal and I'm told the ride is very scenic. It also costs only about $35 US (one way)."
