After a very long walk from check in, through security and then into T2B (this is the terminal adjacent to the new Terminal 2 at Heathrow where Air Canada has its arrival/departure operations), we finally arrived at the Lounge; access is by elevator (lift) from the departure terminal gates to an upper floor. We found way finding signage lacking in this brand new terminal and directions to Air Canada's ML Lounge were no exception. We were absolutely exhausted by this time and looking forward to settling in for lunch before our 3 p.m. flight to YUL. The Lounge was very large and, of course, brand new. Seating was plentiful and the menu selection was excellent, with a complete self-serve bar. There was a chef preparing various cooked meals, however, we just helped ourselves to more lighter fare as we knew we would be having lunch/supper on the flight in a few hours. Washrooms were excellent with private toilets and showers. There was also a business centre which we did not use n or did we use WiFi as it was not secure. We would definitely access this lounge again, now that we know where it is.

vMy spouse and I were flying to LHR via YUL on Premium Economy fares so we were able to purchase Maple Leaf (ML) access for the day of our travel. This is a relatively new Lounge in Winnipeg's James Richardson International Airport which opened a new terminal in 2011. The Lounge is easy to find near Gate 9. Staff were not particularly friendly and just verified our boarding passes without comment. We got seating window-side and helped ourselves to beverages and breakfast prior to our flight to YUL. All amenities and services were very good and seating is plentiful and comfortable.

After a long and frustrating process getting through customs and security after our flight from LHR, we were looking forward to accessing the domestic terminal ML Lounge before our next two flights home. As usual, it was a challenge finding the Lounge and the few Air Canada employees we talked to just grunted and pointed to another annex of the domestic terminal to its location - still not clear. We walked a considerable distance from our departure gate to somewhere near Gate 2 to access the Lounge. We were greeted by the same indifference from Lounge staff we experienced in our previous three ML Lounge visits in our trip to the UK; our boarding passes were scrutinized and handed back to us without comment. We walked into a somewhat small lounge, with dated furniture, passengers lounging about everywhere (this was about 6:30 p.m.) and almost every seat occupied. We finally found a couple of hard chairs in the walkway between the window seats and airline-style gate seats in th e back of the Lounge. We went to the self-serve food area only to find it barely stocked, mostly with appetizers. Very disappointing. We were looking forward to proper meal as we knew we would not get any food service on our two upcoming flights through to YWG. The washrooms were dirty, dated and in poor condition (broken panels, towels all over the place). The overall condition of this Lounge appeared to be one of neglect or indifference. This would not make a very good impression on AC's frequent travellers or international business travellers. We finished up as soon as we could and left for our gate. We looked for a comment card but could not find one and Lounge staff were busy with other passengers. By this time, there was almost just standing room.

After a very long walk from Gate 5 to Gate 52, we finally found the Maple Leaf Lounge in the International area of the YUL terminal. We found way finding signage in YUL to be barely adequate, and that is being generous. This also held true for finding this Lounge. Staff were polite but not overly friendly; they just checked our boarding passes and handed them back without even making eye contact. We entered a large, brightly lit lounge but could not find a window table; we had to settle for a table in the computer area. As we had a three-hour wait before departing for YUL, we had a good lunch of soup, sandwiches, salads and beverages. Menu selection was varied. Seating was comfortable and washrooms were clean. WiFi is available but not secure. There was a good selection of newspapers and magazines. We would definitely access this lounge again.

EVA use the Air Canada Lounge in the new Terminal 2. A very nice airy new lounge at the new Terminal. It was very quiet when I was there 19;00-21:00, there was ample hot/cold food. the lounge is nice and bright/airy. |There is a bar tender which in itself is not a problem but sometimes there was a wait while they were out clearing tables or taking orders. All in all a vast improvement than the old lounge that was used in Terminal 3.

BRU-YUL-SFO. We went out of our way to fly Air Canada back home from Europe. Had a 6-hour layover in Montreal, which was nice. Easy access to the lounge, staff speaks English and French (and possibly some other languages) quite fluently. Food in the lounge was not up to par (about 900 ml of cold pasta salad and some other, similarly sized items were available for everybody). I went downstairs to the Burger King. Other than that, however, the internet is fast and functional, there is a television, and a wide selection of alcoholic beverages in an open-bar format. Not the best lounge, but certainly not the worst.

There are several workstation. The furniture is beautiful. In the room you stay comfortable all the time. A proper and respectful service with passengers.

The Maple Leaf Lounge in the International Section of Terminal 1 at Toronto's Pearson Airport is a pleasant lounge with lots of seating. The lounge has a good selection of drinks but the food selection is much less than what one gets in Europe or Asia. I was in the lounge in the evening (after 8:00pm) and they had noodles and a cold salad. They may have had soup as well. Cookies were available. The beverage supply is large and self serve. There are three Air Canada (Maple Leaf) Lounges at Toronto's Pearson Airport Terminal 1, one domestic, one International, and one for flights to the U.S. This review is for the international lounge which is used for Air Canada and Star Alliance members. In terms of layout and aesthetics, this is a very pleasant lounge. It has a business area, lots of seating, showers, and eating areas with big screen tvs. The newspaper and magazibne supply is huge The airport has free wifi; I'm not sure if the lounge has separate wifi. Most of the staff seem to be there to clean up rather than to help customers, but the lounge is kept clean, and front desk staff are fine. The view of the planes from this lounge is limited, but it is a nice place to relax.

Have visited this lounge in the "rock wall" in the domestic area several times over the past few years, this visit in March 2014 I noticed that the food selection had improved. I was there at 8am on a Friday morning for 1.5 hrs, and aside from the usual cold cereal, hot oatmeal, make your own toast, small muffins/pastries, and fruit, there was a covered hot container with small omelets, hash browns, and large home fries. The coffee machines are wonderful, offering mochas , lattes, cappuccinos, etc. Also hot chocolate. The serving dishes were kept filled, and there was someone going around picking up used plates/cups etc frequently. The lounge seemed very clean, as well as the women's washroom. The lounge is large and was about 1/4-1/3 full all the time I was there. Good selection of newspapers, and lots of different magazines. Wifi seemed to work fine the little I used it. Great view of the continuous action out on the tarmac!

I have a Priority Pass and on my way from CPT to BOS via LHR, I had about 5 hours to kill. I thought I would use the lounge airside, but after a 12 hour flight I wanted a shower, and a light breakfast. This Air Canada Arrivals was heaven sent. It is just outside the arrivals hall, to the left. Please watch out for signs because it is quite tricky to find. Once you are there, the small but cosy lounge welcomes you with open arms. Good hot and cold food, plus good coffee or tea, a shower (very refreshing) and comfortable seats. Small if the place is crowded but at 8am it was very quiet.

My first experience of YYZ's T1 Domestic lounge got off to a bad start, as the agent at the desk was engaged in a scintillating conversation with another agent regarding the closest gas stations to their homes. She never made eye contact, offered any sort of welcome, and simply handed back my boarding pass without so much as a thank you. Thanks, Air Canada, for making me feel like a valued customer! The lounge itself is attractive, well groomed, has ample seating and moderately appealing food choices. A far cry from the catering one would find in Star Alliance lounges in Europe or Asia, but not bad by North American (United, for example) standards.

The quality of internet access that the lounge offers is a joke. They expect Star Alliance Gold customers to pay $3.99 to use the internet, because the free service they offer cannot even open basic websites. What's more embarrassing is that the free service offered by Vancouver airport is much faster and doesn't cripple your access to web services. Other Star Alliance members should return the favour for Air Canada visitors to their lounges. In a world where bandwidth has become as cheap as water, it is ridiculous that Air Canada can get away with fleecing other Star Alliance customers.

Arriving in Toronto at about 1.00pm we had a very long layover since the departure to CPH was at 21.05. The lounge was ok, but the food choices and quality were very disappointing. Sort of dry, boring sandwiches and three different warm dishes - all tasteless. If we should have waiting time at Toronto airport another day, we rather pay for food in one of the eating places in the terminal than eating in the lounge. For a business class lounge of a 4 star airline the food is not adequate and compared to Scandinavian Airlines lounge in Copenhagen and Chicago it's poor. Even the TAP lounge at Lisbon airport has better food quality.

Nice lounge quiet and good internet , but needs to have dirty dishes picked up more often. Also their food offerings are poor. empty wine bottles and no staff to ask for assistance. Chips and hummus you need to scrape the bowl for. They need more staff and replace items more often. I still recommend it, but if you need food go get it somewhere else first.

The lounge was physically fine, but the snacks/food offerings were pathetic. A few applies and bananas, sliced white bread for toast, and pitchers of juice. I ended up with cereal and milk, and thinking that there was great food for people flying coach right outside the doors. Also, even with a sparsely populated lounge, there was a line for the mens room because the mens room must apparently only cater to one person at a time.

I was surprised by the selection of quality food and alcoholic beverages. Being US-based, I was able to compare the many differences between the US airline lounges with the quality of Air Canada. Maple Leaf Lounges are definitely the benchmark for other North American Airlines.

I used the lounge on 22nd December 2012 at around 8AM. The staff at the welcome desk worked very hard to solve a very tricky problem. Their knowledge and level of care was absolutely great. They solved a problem which could have ruined our long planned holiday. I was very impressed and thankful. If there would be a possibility to rate the level of "Standard of Staff Service" better then Excellent - I would do so. The Transborder Maple Leaf Lounge at Terminal 1 Toronto Airport was exceptional due to the superior staff.

Food area has lots of space and selection is the best I have experienced of any North American airport. Despite all of the shortcomings of this airport, the Maple Leaf Lounges here are by far the best experience.

We went to this lounge first thing in the morning because we had an early flight. The are supposed to open at 5:00 am and the door was still locked and the lights off when we arrived. We were let in about 10 minutes after and the girl was just putting things out. There really wasn't a big selection of food. There was tea, coffee, juice and she put out bread for toast, terribly sweet muffins (in packages) and flavoured bagels, none plain. There was also cereal. That was about it. I would not want to go there again. The lounge seemed old and in need of an update.

Way too crowded! The place was packed at 4:30, and stayed that way when we left at 6:00. Two planes, including ours, had slight delays. The food selection was nice, especially the Thai soup. Because it was so busy, the cleaning staff had a lot of work, and empty dishes sat for 20-30 minutes. There didn't seem to be a place for us to drop off our used plates. Good selection of magazines and newspapers.

A very disappointing lounge, which I have used several times for the past four years. Nothing much has changed in the period. Granted is a domestic terminal lounge, but given the number of people who use it, it is far too small. There are many international passengers who connect at YVR, but there is not even a shower for people to freshen up after a 10+hr flight! There is no separate area for people who want to take a rest, and because of the large number of people present, it is very crowded and noisy-- not much different from the terminal building itself. Food is pretty average, and always the same salad and soup options (but nothing vegetarian!).

Excellent Lounge for North American standards. Drink selection very good, food is usually rather light (salads and soups) but good. The weak point is the breakfast which is just cereals, muffins and toast, without any cheese, ham or similar. They have an espresso / cappuccino machine producing excellent coffee. Free internet connection, fast for Air Canada Elites, usually works well, unless the lounge is packed which can happen during peak hours.

When YVR was a single terminal airport, the Maple Leaf Lounges were larger; now there are three (domestic, US/transborder, international) and I was in the transborder lounge on this trip. Access up one floor in an elevator. Amenities are self serve, but more generous and much tidier than Continental or United Airlines lounges. Comfortable seats and workstations. Limited snack buffet is well-attended to. Staff keeping things in order. Wifi, the new system, where some lounge users get (ostensibly) faster wifi access is silly. It was better when you could just boot up your machine, tick the box and get on with things. Overall YYZ lounge is bigger. YYC is grottier. YHZ is tiny. YOW' is probably the nicest (but busiest). On balance I'll take ANY of the YVR lounges thanks.

A disgrace, there is no plausible reason to use this facility. The coffee is terrible, food non-existent, no showers apparently domestic has this for some reason and average business facilities.

All Maple Leaf Lounges at Trudeau are appalling. Domestic is old and cold and needs a refit and the other lounges are a mess, newspapers and used plates and wineglasses just left.

The Maple Leaf lounge has been a very good "office away from the office" facility including free wifi, a bowl of hot soup and the like. In a recent fit of penny-pinching, Air Canada has started demanding that users purchase internet access using a credit card. It is not a huge sum - $10.00 - just enough annoy you, especially when you know that you will have a fight with the accountants to claim it back. I sure hope that the pennies they accumulate from this change offset the costs associated with customer dissatisfaction.

I'm surprised at people complaining about food in Maple Leaf lounge. Air Canada provides comfort food (soup, cookies, bagels), free drinks, internet access, a great selection of newspapers and magazines. The lounge in Vancouver has a stunning view of the North Shore mountains - lounge in Edmonton has a fireplace - lounge in Ottawa is glass on 3 sides. Admittedly the domestic lounge in Toronto is often crowded with slow check-in. The international lounge there is soaring.

Rather disappointed with the lack of breakfast choices when I used this lounge for an early morning flight. Bread, butter, muffin and a small bowl of fruit which emptied very quickly and took the attendants ages to top up. Coffee and tea only beverage choices with just 1 jug of orange on display. The Maple Leaf lounge had a rather' stingy' feel overall, would not use it again.

Very pleasant lounge close to our departure gate. Food somewhat limited but my daughter enthused about the soup (only hot dish on offer). Seating comfortable and ranged from lounge chairs to dining with a good few recliners as well. Business services were excellent with swift internet access. Sadly only two showers for the whole of this busy lounge and you have to ask the reception staff to unlock them and then wait while they find a cleaner to re-stock and clear up after the last occupant!
