    Well Halifax International was operating at zero delay today, no sign of a shortage of security screening staff or any issues. No flight delays on the departures board either. I'm going to say the small airports are doing just fine.

    I will continue to avoid Toronto for numerous reasons, some of which involve the airport.

    Currently a delay receiving checked baggage here in Cowtown. Not yet a concerning length of time. I will obviously monitor that situation.
    Are you still waiting?

    Hah no, bags came in about 15 mins I'd say. Hopped Uber home, and wife rolled her ankle as we were walking in the door. Made for a chaotic evening, but no issues with WestJet t or airport I could see.

    Need to travel to Germany in November. With all the horror stories with LHR, is it worth paying extra $500 to connect in AMS or FRA instead? it's still a bit far away...

    I've never had a good experience at Schiphol, always delays and cancellations everytime i've been there

    Frankfurt is okay, its a long flight from Calgary though...think like 10hrs, its horrible. The airport is fucking huge too, so prepare for a long walk haha

    I love FRA. Go through there so much, learnt all the cool shortcuts through the terminals. I heard it sucks right now with the rotating strikes. From security to ground crew. Or has it calmed down after the summer?

    Super efficient airport. My connecting flight was 40 mins in opposing terminals. Never missed that flight. Even had time to grab a McRib on the go haha.

    FRA is nice. LHR isn’t bad if you don’t have check in luggage.

    Summer break is almost over

    Flying to Mexico tomorrow from Calgary. Anything special to be aware of other than the pathetically stupid ArriveCan app bullshit to return home?

    Zero security line for international flights this morning. Was a beauty. The Transborder departures looked a bit busy tho.

    So YYC is still a breeze, but damn, YVR is having some issues...

    A week ago I did YYC to YVR to SFO, with 40 minutes to connect and do pre-clearance in YVR. I rushed my ass, worried about time to clear customs (thank god for Nexus). Got to the gate when boarding. A full plane, and only 4 people at the gate. This is weird...

    We end up sitting on the plane for 3 hours waiting for the full plane to show up. I guess some work to rule action in YVR shut down security and customs.

    Coming back, SFO to YVR to YYC, had another big delay in YVR, they didn't announce why.


    Doing YYC to LAX to PHX tomorrow morning. Thankfully avoiding YVR.

    Today I Learned you can save 15% on airport parking by booking/paying early online - http://www.yyc.com/en-us/travellerinfo/parking.aspx

    Googled to see what the current rates were and found that, intredasting.

    Didn't get on the road home until 10:30.

    Not great, not terrible.

    The abortion that is CATSA never ceases to amaze me.

    Fred Durst back in action. Hope he doesn't "break stuff" while searching your suitcase.
