Of Baseball Fandom and False Economies Therein
« Topic Start: August 11, 2017, 08:01:32 AM »
Blue Jays supporter, apparently a Briton, decides to save a bit of money catching his team (using Hamilton rather than Toronto Pearson airport) and gets a bit less than what he was seeking - from the airline/airport review site Skytrax (http://www.airlinequality.com/airport-reviews/hamilton-airport/):

'Super small airport, and wonderful if you are meeting someone from Hamilton. Car rentals from site were out of cars and were no help. Cost 40 bucks to take cab from airport to in town car rental agency. Tim Hortons only outlet in airport on arrival side or vending machines. Flying with Flair and can only get tickets printed and drop off suitcases two hours before flight. What we thought we were saving to get to a Blue Jays game in Toronto, cost us more by flying to this back wood airport than what it would have been to fly WestJet to Toronto. Never again, will stick with West Jet - friendly and helpful and reliable. And the Blue Jays lost which made the trip even more horrible.'

On the bright side, there was a Tim Horton's.

They had the 2003 UCI worlds in Hamilton.  Pretty good course IIRC.
