Ok I know I couldn't do any more cliche than that!!

I did book a bus to reach Montreal from Quebec, which was fast and cheap and didn't report it.


Back then the main criterai for me to choose were both the price and the time of flying, to maximise my travelling days without taking many days off. For instance I chose a return flight that was landing at 6.30am, just in time for me to have a quick shower at home and be in the office at 9am.

I checked and at the time I paid £625 for the whole journey, out and return which is really not bad at all.

So here is the routing

I took a cab to go to the airport - I remember it wasn't that expensive. 
I also remember very well as this was the final stop of my previous relationship so - girl bye.

Conclusion

YYZ: A big airport, a lot of lenghty corridors but clean and with a good amount of services.

Air Canada Express: Very little difference with the regional branch of AC.
Every time I was onboard a Dash8-400, every time I felt the plane was really unstable.
The crew was nice and were from Quebec, so they perfectly spoke both languages.
The cabin of the Dash is always a bit narrow, one of the narrowers I have been to but the seats were somewhat confortable.

YUL: Really nice and big airport. Nothing much to say - fairly well organised.
