So try to leave town, I did, but they didn’t make it easy for me. I was supposed to be on a 3pm flight to Montreal, which was cancelled. Then, a 9pm flight, which was also cancelled (at 1am, after three hours delayed in the terminal and after we had been sitting on board for an hour after that, since the flight crew had now gone past their hours working deadline.) Right.
So I tried again the next morning, after a lovely four hours’ sleep at the Ramada Inn Newark, this time, going first to Toronto to then make it to Montreal, for my flight leaving back for London that night. So fun.
So my first stop was Bill Bishop Airport in Toronto. I had no idea that there are two airports there, but I will never use another one than Billy Bishop again, it’s small, veyr well organised, and right next to downtown. Check it out, see how close we are, about to land:
At this point, I wasn’t especially hungry, so opted for a mini salad in the lounge. Oh, that’s right, everyone sits in the waiting lounge and has access to free coffee and cookies – then, you can buy all sorts of healthy snacks, salads, wraps and other bites. Genius.
