Washington is a great city and must see with so many nice architecture, impressive government buildings and great museums most of which are free. I live you with some touristic bonus pictures of Washington. Enjoy :)

    Your photographs taken during descend are really so amazing!! Totally enjoyed looking at them. Same for your tourism bonus in Washington. Great photos!
    It's always interesting to see individual IFE screens being installed on such small aircrafts. Haha. Thanks for sharing this report with great photos!

    YYZ looked eerily empty that morning. The flight didn't look anything extraordinary, yet AC's E190 look awesome!

    Great aerials, specially during landing into DCA!

    Thanks for the D.C. bonus, it brought really nice memories back.

      Thanks very much Chibcha. Actually YYZ looked empty when I took the pictures as it was around 5 am but by around 7 in the morning, the terminal was more crowded as there are many US flights that depart around 7 or 8 am.

    A great report with beautiful pictures as usual. I really like the AC E-jets. It's nice that they all have PTVs. It's quite a contrast with the service provided on the YUL-DCA route on an uncomfortable Air Canada Jazz CRJ200. Nice bonus pics. I hope you had a good time in my city!

      Thanks so much Kevin. Yes, I love the Embraers seat comfort the most in all AC fleet. Very cool that you live in DC. It's such a nice city with so many things to see and do, I don't know why I thought you lived in Montreal. We should plan a FR gathering in Canada, if Toronto it'd be the best as the plane spotting in Pearson is very cool too :)
