Nowadays for a family not to be seated together can only happen on purpose, no?

I’m actively working on re-routing to avoid YYZ today. I I’ve had enough YYZ IROPS excitement this winter.

I havenít left home yet and already have one flight cancelled. The trouble is that my final destination is RDU so my only option is connecting in YYZ. Oh well, I managed to use the online rebooking tool and snagged seats on later flight. Hopefully things will improve by then. There is hope, right?!

Also had USA connection to STL cancelled overnight. Rebooked my yxe-YYZ departing flight from 6:45 to 11:10 and now that is delayed by 1.5 hours due to YYZ ATC. Of course it got delayed as soon as I went through security. I think I should have stayed home today but still hoping I can catch the last flight of the day to STL.

I am pretty much the same. YYZ is boring, but in places like HKG/PEK/NRT, I can walk around the terminal watching airplanes for hours. Only then do I go to lounge to get a quick bite.

Oh it's a fine day in the center of the universe today.

The concierge office was so full there was a line snaking outside to get in. The line at the DOM MLL was no better...

I really feel for all those airport agents working today. I need to start taking notes of all the DYKWIA comments I've heard today, but it must not be easy dealing with the angry masses of customers. Keep up the good work guys! ^

Yuck! That flight status board looks awful! My sympathies.

Canadian airports aren't listed on the Misery Map, but YYZ would be there today for sure if they were.
