On the route Leonardo took to get through security
Leonardo is in the hands of WestJet despite having gone through a rather circuitous route to get there. After printing out my baggage stickers at the self-serve kiosk, I went to the oversized luggage counter dodging a Moroccan(?) family. However, it turned out that it was the Air Canada oversized luggage counter, so I had to go to the WestJet luggage drop-off counter where I dropped off my duffle bag and was directed to the WestJet and Air Transat oversize drop off point. After waiting on some silly disorganized people dropping off a chocolate lab or Weimaraner (I didn't get a good look) the security folks found out that the bike box was too big for their scanner. So I trundled Leonardo over to the Air Canada scanner (which is big enough, having scanned him before) escorted by a security officer. Leonardo receiving a clean bill of health, he and I were escorted back to the WestJet oversized luggage counter where we parted ways. Going through security, I noticed that I had neglected to leave my work ID and excess keys at work as I had planned. (I had left straight from work.) No biggie. The person behind me in the security line up was an Aussie! I am now relaxing over an over-priced beer waiting for my flight to board.
