    Will 2 hours be enough flying AA from US into YYZ, and then transfer to the after CX flight to Asia? Flying in the winter, so I'm factoring in the weather element....

    I flew ORD-YYZ-HKG with a 1hr 45min layover in YYZ before the 1:40am departure. It was just enough as I had a) a 20 minute delay arriving and b) a 45 minute wait for my checked bags. Immigration was no trouble, but I was the last person dropping my bags off at CX check-in upstairs (no one was at the bag re-check downstairs). Had maybe 5 minutes in the lounge before boarding.

    Depends. What time you arriving into YYZ? 2 hours should be enough, but rem you need to clear immigration, grab your bags if you had any checked in and re-check them.. If you are coming in late at night you should be good for immigration. Do pad some time for the winter as Chicago and NYC based flights are always delayed into YYZ...

    Overall you should be fine....

    At that time, you should have no problem. As long as you arrive somewhat on time i would think you would be fine.

    I believe both AA and CX fly out of terminal 3 - so you will not be burdened with changing terminals.
