We had about 2.5 hours in Toronto where we were connecting to our first mini-destination on our trip around the world, Montreal. Because we were travelling in Business Class, we had access to the Maple Leaf Lounge in Toronto. Now Air Canada’s largest hub is Toronto so you would expect that the flagship MLL would be a good one but I found it to be very middle of the road.
While the space itself was quite large, there wasn’t anything that really stood out for me about the lounge. The food spread was something that you would find at a Holiday Inn breakfast buffet but on the positive side, there were showers in the lounge that I took advantage of.
Unfortunately the view of the apron was obstructed by a wall, so views from the lounge weren’t great.
For the most part, I find that Air Canada has a long ways to go before they can touch the experience you get with Asian, Middle Eastern and European carriers.
