Air Canada Economy class – YYZ to DTW

My wife landed a new job and in a spectacular blaze of glory, rage quit her old one. She negotiated some time off before starting the new job and it was a good opportunity to get away and get some down time. We burned all our points and this is what the flight route looked like.

1. YYZ – DTW – AC Y

3. DEL – VTZ – IXZ – AI J

8. 5 nights at Sheraton Towers + touring

10. 1 night at SFO Westin + SFO – YYZ – AC J

Another sunny evening in Toronto with everything going according to schedule. We reached the airport around 7pm to catch our 8.40pm flight to Detroit.

Self check in was a breeze and no queues at the bag drop machine unlike the queue for those who needed assistance. Pearson security continues to amaze with mind boggling directions to get to the NEXUS/GE passengers line, only to end up in the line next to regular passengers for security. With that out of the way, we headed over to the PP lounge to kill time.

Only to be confronted by this sign …

Our backup option using a gift card.

Our ride would be out of the F gates where the CRJ’s are parked.

Boarding was called ahead of time.

Row 10 of 13.

Passengers were gate checking their trolley bags on the shelves.

With boarding completed on time, we pushed back and the pilot taxied like a bat out of hell to runway 23.

With a quick 40 minute flight time, we were in Detroit and made our way to the Four Points Sheraton Detroit Airport for an overnight stay.

Upgraded to a Suite …

Next post – LH F DTW to FRA.
