Great! I'm sure all six of them will really enjoy it.

Sneak peak from the YVR SS preview ahead.

Seating for around 90 guests, and almost all of that is given over to dining.

Unfortunate timing for AC to be rolling this out just now, but it looks nice.

Seems big compared to YYZ?

I'll be attending a preview of the YVR lounge on Thursday evening, and happy to take on board some questions and hopefully come back with some matching answers (assuming there's no FT AC forum representation at the preview, although if AC extends an invite to some very top-tier frequent flyers I'm sure FT will be in the mix!)

Anyway, drop questions here or to me via PM if desired, and I'll see what I can do to get answers.

Dang, I might be too late but if you can find this - Is the YVR signature suite accessible to folks arriving to YVR on international business and then connecting to US (again on AC). I know the US terminal is separate but is it possible to access the lounge from the US terminal post security ?

@arshi007

The answer is no.

Here is the rules from the Air Canada page for the Signature Suite (bolding mine):

*Air Canada Signature Class customers travelling on an Air Canada-operated flight (to Europe, Asia and South America) originally booked and ticketed in the following booking classes will be eligible for access to the Air Canada Signature Suite: J, C, D, Z, P. All bookings in R (including, but not limited to, eUpgrades, Last-Minute Upgrades, AC Bid Upgrades) and I (including, but not limited to, Aeroplan Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards for travel on Air Canada flights or Star Alliance member airlines, Star Alliance Upgrade Awards), as well as bookings made during irregular operations where the customer was not originally booked and confirmed in one of the eligible booking classes, will be excluded. Eligible customers may not invite guests. Access to the Air Canada Signature Suite is not available to customers travelling on promotional tickets or employees.

Unlike YYZ, it is physically possible to access the YVR SS when making a connection.

That being said, I've been denied entry to even the MLL every time I've tried.

Looks pretty nice. Ive never been to the YYZ SSL as my main flying there is transborder, but I might get to visit this one if I do SFO-YVR-TYO sometime.

No desert menu was around, but then I had to scare up the menu shown here - the preview was a rather truncated affair, no speeches or anything.

Am flying back to Sydney on Saturday, when the lounge is properly open, which will afford me the chance to give it a proper whirl (and maybe snap some better pics).
