A 12-Year Old Boy Visits Air Canada’s Transborder Lounge in Toronto

I’ve visited this lounge twice in two weeks, both times around breakfast. It’s perfectly well-provisioned for what it is, which is unimpressive by international standards but certainly better than a red carpet room.

It was busy, though with plenty of seating, certainly clean and staff were visibly picking up after folks and restocking the modest breakfast selections.

I took a walk over to the restrooms and was reasonably impressed.

But it was the shower room signs that stuck with me.

Heh Heh. That sign’s cool, Beavis.

  1. Gary, I sincerely hope that you realize that “douche” is French for shower. I find it amusing that americans make such a big deal out of this word and really wonder how it came to be used for what it is used for today.

  2. Well, the Douche sign is for us douchebag Europeans who don’t know what the hell a shower is 😛

  3. I haven’t had the opportunity to try out international lounges apart from AC & UA lounges. AC is better w/ food & self serve alcohol area. UA is nibbles & awkward bar service.
