    Default YYC Airport delays update?

    National media can't stop talking about Pearson, and Pearson always sucked. What's the status here at YYC for domestic flights? Are people getting there extra early?

    I just went with that. I got there about 90mins before flight departure.
    Conversations like this can be intense.

    think its very dependent on time of day. when we flew to winnipeg we were through in ~4 minutes, but the security lady said that mornings are wild.

    I was >90 min in the security line in February which made me miss a plane.
    At Easter we got there the full ludicrous 3hr early and security lineup was like 2 minutes.
    Domestic.

    Whatever you don't want it to be, it is.

    At 630 this morning there was no line to get boarding passes/print bagged tags and security was a 30s wait for the 1 person in front of us. Pretty easy on a Monday morning it looks like.

    I heard on Sunday there was a line up for the line up to pick up and drop off people at the airport in Calgary according to the taxi driver and my uncle.

    I came back on Sunday and it was jam packed if you were looking for a taxi. I parked at the airport and three floors were full.

    Who cares about waits at security lines, biggest problem at Pearson anyway is lost luggage. Western Canada doesnít seem as bad.

    That's actually completely understandable considering what the typical customer is like at a normal Starbucks, let alone an airport one with a line full of people who are going to miss their flight because god forbid they don't get their starbucks beforehand. I'd shut down the shop too if I had a bunch of Karens yelling at me.

    Mind you, that's also why I never choose any job that deals directly with the general public.

    The AHS system is quite good.

    Starbucks customers are the ones that bitch about not getting gluten-free water

    Domestic gates flowing well at YYC today. Sending my wife away for a few days and she reported 5 minutes at security and no line at subway.

    Quick question. First time travelling with small child and we want to avoid checking anything in. Does car seat get gate checked like the strolled does? Or does it go into the arena of checked baggage meaning a wait on the other side?

    Checked bag, I'm afraid. Actually it's usually to the oversized area.
    Sorry

    Might be easier not to take the kid. Check with local kennel options.

    You can take certain (very precious few) car seats onto the airplane and use them as a "booster" for the kid (assuming kid > 1.999yo) but you will hate that a lot.

    My wife is flying to Newfoundland tomorrow via Toronto at 6am. Planning on getting her to the airport at 4am. Hopefully there's no issue in Pearson where she changes planes. No checked bags, so that should help.

    I hope it goes well for her, and the carry-on only should really help. I just paid a last minute $1,300 extra to avoid a family layover, deejays (thanks auto erect!) delays and lost birthday presents in Pearson.

    I flew out to the island last week Thursday morning, the security lineup was horrendous. Probably an hour wait through security. Nobody in nexus line so I got through in 10 mins.
