After a great trip over to West Africa, it was time to head back to Toronto. Instead of flying direct, I wanted something a little different. I opted to fly into Toronto Billy Bishop Airport via Montreal. 

Booked via Aircanada.com, the ticket $239 USD. 



Arriving to EWR about 90 minutes before, the airport was surprisingly quiet.

A lovely thing about AC is that even their regional jets have IFE!

The lineup was rather long and taxi took about 40 minutes due to traffic delay.

Soon enough though, the clouds came in and it was overcast for some bit.
