It's one of my lingering irritants about Toronto. Signage tends to be terrible city wide. It baffles me why the city can't get it right.

It looks about as depressing as I it, flying in and out of YYZ. To be fair though it is still good for a North American airport.

I would not call it depressing. And the departure level is world class.

What I miss in this airport is colour. The waiting area is crying out loud for some colour, chairs or columns or anything. The black metal sculpture is a big disappointment.

It's the monorail shuttle between Terminals 1 and 3. They've talked about building a rail link to the city for 20 years without progress.

It looks ok. Nothing special when compared against Asian airports.

Great for an airport in the Americas.

These pictures are a bit gloomy. The airport looks better in real life. But the roads and highways around it are a complete mess.
