YYZ: Toronto Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge International

Toronto International Maple Leaf Lounge
The Air Canada Toronto International Maple Leaf Lounge is a lovely vast lounge for the main hub. Mind you, it is split into small chunks by high wooden barriers, so it seems a lot cosier than it is.

You have to walk a long way to get here, and if you are transferring from a domestic flight (remember to get an exit passport stamp at the odd roped off passport control on the gantry) it can feel like a hike half way around the airport.

The bar area is where you walk in (with another one up the stairs), the showers are at the far end (get a key from reception) and at the far end is a quiet area and computer rooms.

There would be a view over the runway - however the windows have blinds, and are some way away from the lounge.

Food

The food is however very poor, with just a bowl of salad, carrots, celery and tomatoes, plus 3 types of dip. There is also a bowl of apples, oranges and bananas. There are also some biscuits on the counter.

Bar

The bar is fantastic - one of the best at any airport lounge - if only because of the vast array of spirits. There are 17 on optics, and another 5 sitting on the bench. There are 4 beers on draft (Sleeman Cream & Pale Ale, Guinness, and Canadian). However the wine is very poor, with just one lonely white sitting in a bucket, one red on the counter, and no champagne.

There is a fax, two colour printers, a photocopier, and Wifi around the lounge. Above the bars are two TVs, however they show a very low-definition version of CNBC, while at the far end of the lounge there is a Sony Grand Wega television with Surround Sound.
