We have a trip coming up that will see us land at Pearson (Terminal 1) at 2 am, returning from Cuba; we have a connecting flight from YYZ to our hometown taking off at 8:15 am. Given that we will have to clear customs and collect our bags, and get back early enough to clear security, etc., we calculated we'd get at most 2-3 hours in a hotel. So the easiest thing to do seems to be to check our luggage through to our connecting flight and tough it out by dozing at the airport for the intervening hours.
I was checking out tips for the airport at sleepinginairports.net and the reviews (www.sleepinginairports.net/list.asp…) have me totally confused. Several seem to imply that we will be made by security to exit the airside area. Does anyone know if this is the case? There are also conflicting reports of whether there are areas with no-armrest seating airside.
Any relevant infor or experience would be much appreciated.
