As with the open road, so too the open skies!
Since I had the Pool View Suitei already booked at the PacRim,ii ostensibly for a family trip between business trips to LA and Montreal, but with the bookends cancelled by COVID, I figured that I’d make lemonade out of the situation and enjoy the hamburger patty without the buns. Yum! So off to the private airport previously known as “YEG” I went, and onto the private airport previously known as “YVR” did I find myself 90 minutes later. Here are a few photos from the experience previously known as “commercial air travel” :
It all felt a bit like I imagine flying through Terminal 3 at Julius Nyere International Airport in Dar es Salaam feels like. Oh, you didn’t want your country to be like Africa after all? News to me…
I can certainly see the appeal.

- Upgraded to the C$2`000 per night Fazioli Suite because there’s probably not 50 people staying in the hotel and large sections are therefore closed down, included the C$950 per night Pool View Suite that I’d originally booked. The upgrade more than made up for the fact that I planned to use but two out of the three booked nights.
- Shame on me for booking through a third-party booking agency but this “mistake” did at least push me to “succumb” to the sunk cost fallacy and take a little trip while the rest of the world is quite happily locked down. ↩
