Montreal - YUL / USA zone



After a very short night (arrived at the hotel at 05P, wake up 4.15A, pretty steep) we went to the USA flights check in area. Good thing is that it is just below the Marriott's lobby.

The check was quick and efficient, we should then bring our suitcases to a special belt where they are scanned and then can proceed to security. Security was super fast thanks to a priority lane.

Then comes immigration, as Canada is part of pre-immigration, no kiosks available that morning in YUL. There was a half an hour wait but this was ok. Our officier that morning was super friendly and funny. She has also a screen that shows our bags and we have to confirm they are ours. The whole process, check in, security and immigration took a bit less than 45'.

There is a duty free right after immigration

The gate is a bit strange, you first have to go twice down to reach the jetty:

Even though it is an international flight, no breakfast service, only snacks:

Not a big deal but I would have loved to see some fresh and healthy choices.

Conclusion

A nice flight despite the poor catering offer. The seat is great as it is a real business class, not as what we have in Europe.

The crew was great and happy to be there.

I liked to do immigration on Canada soil, then the flight is considered as domestic and you can simply connect to your next flight.

Thanks for reading!

A bientôt pour la suite !
