This February break trip was to Tel Aviv. The routing was as follows
YSJ-YYZ-this report
YYZ-TLV-coming soon
YYZ-TLV-no report

We arrived at the small Saint John airport at 11:00 for our flight. Unsurprisingly, this left us more time than we needed. We quickly cleared security and sat and waited for our flight. Finally, at 11:15, our plane arrived.

As YSJ has no jet bridges, we stepped outside on to the cold apron and walked towards our older livery aircraft.

Once I got on the airplane, I made my way all the way back to 20F, the last row seat aboard.

Legroom was not in abundance, but it was doable for this short hop.

We taxied to the runway and soon took off.

After about twenty minutes, the service started. I had ginger ale and water, and as usual, no snacks were handed out.

As we were near the galley, I took a picture of the cramped work space.

About half way through the flight, I used the lavatory. The Q400 lavatory has to be one of the smallest. being 6 foot 1, or about 185 cm, I couldn't even stand up straight. the sink was inoperative and that was annoying. Thankfully, hand sanitizer was supplied

About the 50 minutes before landing the flight attendants offered water and I was happy to oblige.

Soon enough we descended into snowy Toronto, and we prepared to disembark.

We bid our flight attendants farewell and headed onto the apron, ready for the next phase in our journey.

Overall, this flight was pleasant. However, the lack of wifi or other entertainment, lack of snack with the beverage, and the inoperable sink took away from the experience. I wouldn't hesitate to fly Air Canada again, but I'm glad they are no longer the only option out of YSJ.
