If you are travelling to East or South London or the City, then taking a fast train to London Bridge is a better option than Gatwick Express & Victoria. Short cab/tube ride to your destination then.

Quite. YYT-LHR will be a MAX once it returns to service. Not taking that flight means flying via YYZ or YUL. In the former case its almost inevitable that you end on a MAX for YYT-YYZ which rather...
