^ I am thinking of going, but there are two obstacles. It's going to very dark, rainy day, and it's the evening flight. The earlier flight will be operated by euroatlantic 763ER.

The earlier flight will be severely delayed as last night there was a medical on board and the flight turned back to YYZ while it was nearing Nova Scotia.

At this time of the year it is still bright at 2000 :-)

A question based on LOT's 787's arrival. Is there some kind of protocol as to when an airport provides the fire truck water cannon welcome? Is this based on a new airplane or a new airline carrier at an airport? Did Ethopian already arrive at YYZ with their 787?

Don't know for sure about the water cannon, but I think it is only for new carriers...

Ethiopian are already serving YYZ with 787s (mixed with 777s and 767s)..

LO 045 is airborne, on its way to YYZ.....aircraft registration is SP-LRA

I really do like the new Air Canada Rouge paint scheme. Can't wait to see it at more airports. Does anyone know which routes it is operating now?

Ahh Yeah I saw that as well. Btw I ended up going on a boat party. Btw we had some polish guys on the boat as well. I was able to get some low quality shots of YTZ.



The CN tower in the early evening.


YTZ can be seen way at the back.



Finally we arrive closer towards the terminal building.



Right behind me, the world class city that is missing the rail link to Toronto Pearson.

yes, If you are travelling as a family.. you do end up saving lot of money.. for example.. we are a family of 3 and had to travel to Houston for a couple days.. Fares from BUF were $325.. while the ones from YYZ were close to $600.. now multiply that by 3 and after subtracting the gas costs; you are looking at a saving of close to $ 800..

Good pictures! I hope the Dreamliner will discourage the local Poles to fly Lufthansa/Austrian when visiting Poland! Cheers!
