Post-storm reboot at Pearson

Post-storm reboot at #YYZ #PearsonAirport. @AirCanada checkin lines, even priority, snake through halls. Landside display screens are off, adding ambiguity for travellers. AC982 YYZ-MBG priority checkin of 7:50 a.m. had 30 pax in line at 8:00. Departure of 8:50 changed to 9:30. Gates must be in short supply. At 9:20, AC982 moved from gate E70 to E80. A crew shows up at 9:30, are they for our flight? No aircraft at gate, flight departure is updated to 11:15. Travellers mostly quiet, showing Canadian politeness.

    Now recognizing cotravellers returning to Maple Leaf Lounge. Departure time updated to noon. At 11:30, announcement that aircraft has been pushed to gate. Passenger cheer. Then announcement that catering supplies will be low, so passengers might want to visit airside food shops to carry on own food. Just before noon, gate agent asks to respect boarding as called, as she is the single agent for this flight.
