The YVR Maple Leaf Lounge

There are compensations for arriving at the Vancouver Airport at 5:40 a.m. We checked in fairly quickly and efficiently at an Air Canada machine, and then strolled through US Immigration and Customs and the security line with virtually no wait. The Immigration inspector even managed to be friendly!

The Maple Leaf Lounge is a lovely refuge in a beautiful airport, and the concierge quickly switched our Air Canada Row 13 back-row seats next to the lav in the Dash-8 to Row 3. Of course, we'll only be in the air about 40 minutes as we fly over our house down to Seattle, but we might as well sit up front. Of course, in a de Havilland Dash-8 every seat is near the front, in a manner of speaking.

Now for some light breakfast...
