Welcome back to another short travel series. This report though short, shows my connection to ORD via LGA. I've been fond of the C-Series for some time and this was a great opportunity to fly on it for the first time. 

This trip began in Downtown Toronto where I used the smartest addition to the GTA Public Transport network, the UP Express. With multiple daily departures starting at around 5AM, this train connects downtown to Toronto Pearson Airport; a much needed connection.

About 20 minutes after, Terminal 3 was in the distance.

Fortunately, US Customs & Immigration is offered in Toronto and makes trans-border flying hassle free.

As these flights a relatively short, a bottle of water was the only thing offered catering wise.

We swung into Terminal A at LGA which was under heavy construction. As of June 2022, most of it has been completed and the airside bus shuttle is no longer needed.

Though not always a favourite amongst travellers, the air side bus shuttle gave some great tarmac views of Terminal A. A DL A321 to ATL and an ERJ to BOS were seen at their respective gates.

Conclusion

Another short and uneventful trans-border flight. DL did a good job as they're used to. Though nothing compared to Terminal B or C, Terminal A even while under construction was efficient with little congestion.
