Checked in at the Westin SFO for one night as our flight back to Toronto was at 1.30pm the next day. We were ‘upgraded’ to a room with a lovely view of the airport. We walked over to the In-n-Out for a light dinner and called it for the night.

The next day, we took the shuttle back to the airport for our flight. Check-in at the Air Canada desk was a breeze and security was a nightmare as usual but we made it through unscathed. Tried getting into the United Polaris lounge but got shut down hard LOL.

We were told to go the United Club lounge which was god awful and not worth reporting on. Well, I will say that the food was bad and the lounge was overcrowded.

We went to the gate to find out that the flight would be delayed slightly as the inbound bird was yet to arrive. SFO was a gong show that day as there were multiple announcements of gate changes and pages for people who were last to arrive for their flight. The screen for our flight was even showing United which caused a lot of confusion for people.

“Yes sir – this is the AC flight back to Toronto, please ignore the screen.”

Once the bird arrived and people were booted off, boarding was called.

The flight to Vancouver next to us - the plane was undergoing a maintenance check due to a bird strike upon landing and was severely delayed.

Peace out San Fran

With the seat belt signs off, it was time for a drink. Black label for me and apple juice for her. Our meal selection was also taken down before take-off and we were given priority as half of the J cabin was op ups.

Salad to start

The main attraction – cheese tortellini for her, braised veal for me

To end – fresh baked cookie plus ice cream

There was one crew member serving J class and she was friendly for the entire flight. She informed the op ups that there was no meals catered for them but she was able to get anything from the economy class menu if they wanted something. She even gave us first choice of desserts and who can pass on the fresh baked cookie. A decent flight for AC overall.

Conclusion

Airline - didnt have high expectations and was decently surprised with service from crew and decent food.

SFO airport - security was long but made it through. The United Club lounge was packed and food was terrible.

YYZ airport - wonders will never cease but NEXUS saved us from long immigration lines and our bags were on the belt by the time we got into the baggage hall. Was home in 1 hour from time we got off the plane - a record for YYZ.

    Air Canada looks like they offer a decent Business Class service, but interesting they don't have a service up to their international Business Class standards like Delta offers when flying trans-continental in the US with their Delta One product, and Jet Blue's Mint. The tortellini looks good though - I'd order that for sure!

    Thank you for sharing.
