Seeing as AC uses the preclear facility at YYZ I would bet that they stay in concourse C. Yeah, I was just on this flight last month.

Is it just me, or is every other post confused about whether or not we’re talking about takeoff or landing? All US Airlines ask people to close the shades after landing when deplaning.
