According to AC, it looks like T1 gate numbers will be renumbered
|Quoting Air Canada:|
On January 31, 2012, Toronto’s Pearson International Airport will implement gate signage changes to make it even easier for travellers to find their gates.
A ‘D’ for domestic flights
An ‘E’ for international travel, and
An ‘F’ for U.S. destinations
I have spent 10s of hours over the course of the past 2 years connecting in YYZ's T1 and always found it interesting the way gate numbers were designated. You have the 120s to 140s for domestic, 150s and 160s (and the 200s) for US-bound planes and, to top it off the 170s for the non-US International departures. Sometimes, there is a major number gap between two adjacent gates. I never really got the whole gate number scheme even though I now have YYZ T1 layout basically committed to memory.
Thoughts on this new plan?
