Anyway, here's my opinion on Pearson as I've been to it a few times:
- T1: Great terminal, open and airy, could use some non-white paint to make it more aesthetically pleasing and less like a hospital.
- T3: Not a bad terminal either.
- T2: A complete and utter dump, this thing has got to go.
- Infield: Never been there.
All this said I must admit I avoid Pearson like the plague, ESPECIALLY when travelling to the US. First and foremost, pre-clearing US customs is a bloody nightmare due to the massive lines. Secondly, Air Canada's US-bound flights operate out of T2, meaning an annoying terminal change from T1 via Bus and time spent in the dump known as T2.
If I can't get there nonstop from Ottawa I ALWAYS connect through Chicago O'Hare on United. The entire O'Hare airport, especially the United terminal, is amazing ... and my experience with United has always been good too.
