I landed at Pearson T1 2 weeks ago.

Getting off the plane took about 20 mins but I sat as close to the front as possible to minimize waiting. We were through immigration in 15-20 mins. No issues, CBSA asked us usual questions and asked for our arrivecan, and we were on our way. Bags out less then 10min after that. All in all within the hour we were back at my car driving home. Not bad at all. Very commeasurate with my experience landing at T1 in July as well.

I arrived at YYZ yesterday. I was delighted to find that they've given up with the machines for processing arrivals and gone back to cardboard. I didn't like the taste of the slips printed by the machines. There's a new wrinkle now. After the palaver whereby everyone has to produce the cardboard at the exit there's an additional need to produce passports after leaving the baggage hall. Of course, everyone has put those away so they stop in the middle of the aisle to rummage in their bags.

The arrival covid testing facility is in the car park, up one floor, across, up two more, behind the bogs. It couldn't be more typically Pearson if I'd designed it.

The airline required that ArriveCan be used to store one's information and that one has a covid test but none of that is used upon arrival. Again, it's almost a caricature of how one expects things to be at YYZ.

I made the safari to the testing centre with a jolly mockney lady "cor blimey, they don't know much do they?" she remarked, of the confused airport staff. I went into emissary for Toronto mode "Its only the airport that's shit, honest" I offered.
