Boarding commenced ontime at 1120, and we pushed back ontime just after 12 noon.

A short taxi to runway 27R saw us takeoff at about 1225.
Soon, we were served Lunch, with beverages, and a hot towel service as well.
The inflight movie was "Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire", followed by "In The Line Of Fire", between which I open the window shade for a quick picture.
We commenced our descent into YYT about 20 mins before the 2nd movie finished (in fact in didn't finish, as the IFE had to be turned off), and as we were on approach to runway 29, I took a few pictures of St john's, which appeared on my left.

Date: 28th April 2006
Departure Apt: YYT
Arrival Apt: YYZ
Aircraft: Airbus A321 (C-GIUB)
Flight No: AC695
The flight was due to leave YYT at 1250, so I got to the airport for around 10am, and took a few pictures of the terminal, which is only 4 yrs old (they were building it on my last trip to the province back in 2002).
I then made my way to the checkin area, dropped off my luggage and then went upstairs to the observation deck. It was good to see an airport actually providing facilities to be able to watch aircraft movements from, and this was in the area before security as well, which is an added bonus.
Pretty soon, at about noon, a DL 764 (N832MH) arrived on runway 34, much to my surprise. I thought "Wow, another diversion!", but then when i went to ask a member of staff about this arrival, she told me it had been ferried in from JFK to pick up the pax from the AF10 flight, which could not leave as the engine needed to be replaced on the A340. The 764 parked at gate 1.
About 5 mins later, my booked A321 (C-GIUB) arrived, and taxied to gate 3.

Flight No: AC856
I arrived at T1 in YYZ at around 1500, to find huge lines at the AC international check in Zone (Zone D). I was informed that the baggage conveyor system was not working as it should, hence why all the Checkin staff were loading tagged bags onto huge carts and taking them away for processing.
I eventually was checked in at around 1645, less than an hour before my flight was due to board. I managed to clear security in under 5 mins, then went to the gate for my flight. Heres my aircraft.
