That was a nice little TR!

It's amazing that AC has PTVs on all (?) of their A/C! The cabin looks very inviting.

As for the lounge and the airport, they look pretty neat. I'm a fan of "small" airports, I don't know why but I love that little airport charm. Once again, nice TR and looking forward to more!


It's a cultural thing.

Hope you enjoyed your trip on the Embraer. Are those cloth seats? I've never seen an E-Jet with cloth seats before! Is all of AC's fleet cloth seats?
Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

Good job; everything looks nice and neat. I also like those short hops since it makes an airline show their best in 30 minutes or less.

You've got me thinking...I've never seen cloth seats on an E-Jet either. Leave it to Canada to be different...   
Good night, and keep watching the skis. Uh, skies.

Many thanks for the trip report. That airport looks pretty nice and modern and of course the plane being an E-jet is definitely nice too. I really must visit Canada some day!

Many thanks,

Thanks for sharing your trip. I've flown in and out of YEG a few times; last time I also sampled the Maple Leaf lounge for the first time back in (IIRC) 2008. I was departing on the daily flight to LHR and the lounge was packed with AC passengers catching the Gray Cup Final on TV. I must have been the only one who didn't care or realise the significance of that game MAN-ORD-YEG-LHR-MAN: BD & UA In Y & AC In J (by Jamesontheroad Jan 5 2008 in Trip Reports)
