During a business class flight from Toronto to Paris on the Air France A350, I had the opportunity to test the Air France-KLM lounge in Toronto (YYZ).
How to access the lounge
This lounge is accessible to passengers of some airlines belonging to the SkyTeam alliance and travelling in business class (or with an Elite Status allowing access to the lounges).
You can also access it with the right credit card (coming with Priority Pass or LoungeKey membership), such as the Platinum Card®.
If you want 6 annual Priority Pass lounge and restaurant passes, a great card is the Scotiabank Passport™ Visa Infinite* Card (also a credit card with no-FX fee). You could also earn 4 annual Priority Pass lounge and restaurant visits with the CIBC Aventura® Visa Infinite* Card or the CIBC Aventura® Gold Visa* Card.
Finally, if you are a frequent traveller, the best choice is one of the American Express Platinum cards, which are the only ones to offer unlimited access for the Cardmember and one guest to more than 1,300 airport lounges worldwide.

The Air France-KLM Lounge is located in Terminal 3 of Toronto-Pearson International Airport (YYZ), just above Gate C33.
The lounge's catering areas
After an access control to the lounge, we arrive directly at the catering area on the right.
It is a buffet formula with cold starters and hot dishes.
On the drinks side, some juices and alcoholic drinks are offered.
The lounge's rest areas
The rest and work areas are spread around the lounge. It’s pretty easy to isolate yourself.
A few magazines are also freely available.
We also appreciate the bay windows offering a great luminosity through the lounge.
Our general impression of the lounge
This lounge is a good option if you are travelling on an international flight from Toronto-Pearson Terminal 3.
