They started boarding our flight and then changed their minds about the
flightworthiness of our plane, causing a 1.5-hr delay. This is the view from
the new plane, with the tail of the defunct 767 in the background on the
right. This was my vantage point as a food-services worker managed to squish
a tray full of special meals under a scissor-lift truck in an oh-so-avoidable mishap.
Yay, at last we hit the runway, about 2 hours late.
There were very few recognizable landmarks visible as we headed east from
Toronto, but I was able to pick out the St. Lawrence river (with ice along
the southern bank) somewhere east of Montreal.
As we were heading in the opposite direction from the sun, it didn't take
very long for daylight to pass.
