Below are pictures from my flight from Toronto to Boston in December 2013. Toronto was hammered by one of the worst freezing rain storms ever 3 days before. Freezing rain started on Friday and went all the way to Sunday for 3 days non-stop. Previously Toronto would have freezing rain only for couple of hours very few times in winters. But this freezing rain storm halted the whole city. All the streets and sidewalks were like skating rinks. It was so dangerous to walk outside. All trees were covered in ice crystals and a lot of them became heavy and broke off and many people were without power for couple of days and it was all happening the week of Christmas. Anyways my flight was on Monday and the rain had stopped by then. I was glad to be able to leave on time and flew to Boston with Air Canada and after a short stay in Boston I went to Zurich for couple of days.
Below are pictures from the trans border part of Toronto's terminal 1. In major Canadian airports, they designate a portion of the airport to USA flights. You clear the US customs and immigration in Canada and once you step airside it's like you are already in USA, since when you get to US, you can just go direct to baggage claim without going through immigration.
The Trans border part of Toronto airport- For US flights only
Long corridor with gates on both sides- The end of the corridor in Terminal 1's International section that is accessed from 1 level up
The end of the trans-border section- The International part of the terminal is separated by a glass barrier, which is visible here
A peak at the International section shops through the glass barrier
Looking back all the way through the transborder section
At first I got an aisle seat but since the flight was not full I changed to a window seat when boarding was completed
Great leg room and seat comfort in Embraers
This is the de-icing ramp at pearson, the process of de-icing takes around 10-15 minutes for small sized air crafts
The de-icing machine
The liquid is green, which is interesting

God I hate these dry sticks
I LOVEEE the Just for Laugh Gags, they are my most favorite- In any airline I immediately watch this if they have it
Descend into Boston, which was rainy

As bonus I am including pictures from both 2013 and 2014 Toronto Pearson Airport Street Festival
For the past 3 years, the Pearson airport has been organizing this awesome and nice event that is open to all. You just need to register online. They dedicate a part of the airport and they bring various machinery, such as fire trucks, de-icing machines, various vendors and booths for Canadian airlines and KLM for the past years. They also bring planes of various size on display and since the area is just next to main runways, you can watch the planes take off and land. They also offer a tour bus of the airisde ramps, in which they take people around the airside area, pass various planes so they can take a close look. This event is held annually around the second week of September and is such a great event. Many thanks for the Pearson airport and all its volunteers and organizers for these amazing memorable events.

Since it was a Saturday this year as well like in 2013, the schedules of most regular flights were the same and again the Korean Air was taking off
I love the Egypt Air Livery- So nice

Air India does not fly to Toronto at the time being, but this aircraft was travelling from Chicago To Delhi the night before and it encountered engine problems and had to land at Toronto for repairs
I hope you enjoyed this FR and pictures of Toronto's Airport :)

Boston - BOS
The Air Canada's Embraer's are very comfortable and it was a nice flight experience. As for the meal I don't like the dry pretzel sticks, if they replace these sticks with cookies or chocolates that'd be much more pleasant for most people. Toronto's Airport is very clean and nice. Boston airport was a bit dated and looked old in some areas but was ok overall.
