Long Walk

We had a very long walk to get back to the same gate we arrived at. We had a 2 hour layover while the Air Canada Boeing 777 was being cleaned. Deplaning ramp took us to the arrivals level and to get to the departures level for the same gate it must have been at least 2 km and we had to go past the retail stores and through security just to get to the upper level to re-enter the same aircraft. Maybe this sort of thing will be rectified when the new terminal now under construction gets finished.

Fuel

Credit cards not accepted at pump. Transient pilots must call in attendant with a special card. Then credit card is accepted manually by same attendent in terminal building. Had to wait about 15 minutes. The fact that credit cards are not accepted at the pump is not displayed, and we tried several times.

Dining at golf course

Great place to eat at the adjacent golf course during golf season. About a 10 minute walk across the end of the runway then along a fairway.
