I did not hesitate an inch when I booked my flight from Toronto to NYC on Air Canada. After a month of work stress, I really needed to be away. I always leave 3 weeks in November for me to go and ‘get lost’ – it’s my time.
I appreciated that I was able to catch one of the first flights out of Toronto to NYC. So I grabbed the early TTC airport shuttle from Kipling Station and headed straight for Toronto Pearson International Airport on the 5:11 a.m. bus. Yes, I did say that time.
After breezing through security having already checked in online the night before; I headed straight to the Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge. Have you heard of it?
Well it’s the dreamy magical place where when you are half awake like me can have a slap up breakie and tea before you leave town for 8 days.

Complimentary light snacks and alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, including local beer on tap, cappuccino and espresso

That particular morning I enjoyed some eggs, a lil yogurt, a tea, some grapefruit juice, some cereal and a magazine or two. Come on, I’m on holiday let a girl live a little!
I also enjoyed Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge and its comfort, mindfulness and serenity from the manic-ness down below in the gate areas.
Would I check out Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge again? In a heartbeat. For a single girl heading out of town needing a quick reminder – ‘hey you worked hard all year, now it’s time to enjoy’ – Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge gave me a fantastic starting point. Merci!
