On Friday evening, after two weeks in Ottawa, my wife and I were ready to return home to Toronto. There were showers in both the Ottawa and Toronto areas. We arrived at Ottawa's McDonald-Cartier Airport about 2:30 P.M. and reviewed the departure board to find our flight, Air Canada 481 was delayed until 6:00 P.M. We also saw the other Air Canada flights to Toronto were delayed as well. We dutifully checked in early to ensure we were clear of security.
The Ottawa airport on both sides seemed to be pretty quiet with quite a number of empty domestic gates and a steady flow of passengers coming through security.
