The question remains, is it worth going to Beijing? (I am booked for December).  From what I heard the Chinese food here in the US is so much better.

If the only reason for going is the food, you might be on to something...

So would that also be the case from LHR to LAX via YUL?
70min connection.
if you have global entry it's maybe enough, if not it's probably not enough, when I passed YYZ there was a crazy line by customs, also you normally have to wait for your bags to be pictured and wait for your name to come up on the screeen for you to be able to go to a customs agent

YUL is much faster than YYZ

Ridiculous. I'd worry more about them honoring the fare. If they do, be happy you got what you got. Use your Amex plat to pay the seat charge lol.

I hated connecting through YYZ, and flying J didn't make it any better (and I do have Nexus and GE).

As a matter of fact, YYZ is one of the airports I try to avoid.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Agreed. Though I haven't connected there in a very long time (probably since before BA changed their currency name to Avios and introduced obscene YQ).

For my flights it's $25-$40+ per passenger per leg. So my $240+ ticket would go up to ~$300.

I booked 1 trip for 3 people, so not so bad (not that I'm gonna pay). But people traveling with 4+ pax, or booked multiple trips, those numbers really add up quick.

ETA: calling soon for this  :)

Confirmed, free seats. Thanks Dan  :)

Oh, and thanks OP  :) :)

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Do they charge for baggage ?
