Before boarding our United First Class flight down to SFO, we decided to check out the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge in the Transborder Terminal. The entrance to this lounge is located between gate 84 and 86. We got through security pretty quickly as Nexus card holders, so we waited for about ten minutes for the lounge to open at 5 am.
The Cathay Pacific Lounge in Vancouver was recently renovated to take on Cathay’s redesigned theme, similar to The Pier Lounge at Hong Kong International Airport. We were really excited to visit this lounge, especially because I was so bitter that it was closed last time I was taking JAL’s 787. We decided to head to the airport early to give ourselves plenty of time at the lounge.
