CONCLUSION

Having visited the Maple Leaf Lounges in Montreal (Domestic) and Toronto (Transborder) in the past, I thought this lounge was smaller and didn't offer the same quality of food as the two. I was flying in Lufthansa first class and was hoping to have access to a separate first class lounge but there was none. Well, I guess the demand is not that high to have a separate first class lounge but a small section with better amenities and food would have been more appreciated. Overall, a nice lounge.
