New York - Syracuse (AA/UA/JB) 737, E190 & A320

My family moved from Syracuse in the fall. I still have some family in the area, and I have been back only once for not even a day on my first trip of IOE. We had an overnight in SYR. But it is nice in Syracuse in the summer, and I hadn’t seen some people in a while. So I decided to go up for a few ...

I'm curious (and I understand if you can't share this), but what are the Canada specific arrival procedures?


It's nothing that complicated. Most of it has to do with the terminology, and meeting crossing restrictions on the arrival.
