Looks like I'm following in the footsteps of giants, I'm at SFO right now waiting on UA 2239 to YVR which is expected to be on time.

so there has been some informal conversation about a pre-dinner meetup (aka “sub-DO”?) at the Sheraton ~530pm on Sat ... all those interested please reply here (reasonably ASAP would be good)

I’m in for a Sub ‘Do if it is on. And I think you mean the Wall Centre* Lounge, correct? Where most people are staying?

* note the Canadian spelling, eh :D

On the air train ^

I was too late to book the sold out Wall Center. I also would like an invite to the lounge if anyone is willing.

Sold out? I just booked my room (on points) about 15 minutes ago.

sorry, sold out on points :)

Edit- not sold out on points... weird, it displayed as not available when I looked earlier today... Must have done something wrong.

I'm at the C SEA Board Room dba Alaska Lounge, waiting on AS 2508. I'm hoping to make it on the last SkyTrain into town.

You will make it easily. I take that flight often. With Nexus, I have never missed the 12:35am Skytrain. You will easily make the 12:56am.

Ditto. Assuming it's the Sheraton Wall Centre, I'm in.

Let us know the secret password.

Global Entry isn't good enough for CBSA. :)

Where should I go after exiting the customs hall? I've only done the train to Pacific Central or caught an airport hotel shuttle bus.

As soon as you exit the Customs Hall, head out the nearest exit door - straight ahead, just keep walking straight. Cross the street to the parking garage and go up the escalator (up two levels). You’ll see signs -Trains to City. It is a 30 second walk. Get off at Vancouver City Centre station and it is a couple minutes walk to the Westin Grand.

Got in a little early (thanks, United) and had no issues with border control (thanks, CBSA). Waiting on the SkyTrain now.
