    The renovations are great so far. Most seats have lots of places to plug a charger and the bathrooms are nice. Free wifi still available. Not much food through security still though.

    With Phase 1 of the airport completed, you'll enjoy a more 'big airport' look and feel. Better layout. Currently no restaurants in the new area but there is a future food court area reserved.

    Enjoy Tim's before security because once you go through there is one small counter for food/drink and pay automated coffee machines scattered through the 7 gates.

    The toasted chicken & brie panini at the concession *before* security is surprisingly tasty. Not much in the way of food options after security.

    #YXE is still small enough that, if you're *lucky*, the Air Canada priority counter just *might* personally escort your checked bags to the airplane if you arrive after cutoff! \m/ (>.<) \m/

    You can pick up your snacks, beverages, and magazines after security now. They've made some changes over there and it is much much better!!! Finally!

    No need to stress. Airport is small so you won't be doing a lot of walking to get from baggage check-in, to security, to your gate.

    No restaurants past security, eat a meal beforehand! Cafe past security has sandwiches, magazines, coffee, and booze.

    Small tidy airport with helpful staff. No Maple Leaf Lounge (sad) or priority security (no problem since line is short).

    Prairie Elevator has a good pulled pork sandwich, add a Molson and it makes for a good lunch.

    Steeped tea at Tim Hortons is the way to survive your flight! Easy to use and comfortable airport.

    They took my 2 juice (sealed) bottles from me, being over 100 ml. 45 steps later I can buy 2x that size for 2x the reg price. Want to bet they are reselling the confiscated beverages? They smell good2

    Parking nazis are insane. Picking up family and was told not to park in Arrivals, but to move all the way up into the No Waiting zone.

    Restaurants are still not open past security. If you don't eat before security, plan on chips and water. No hot food or Tim Hortons to be found for several more months.

    Parts of the airport are currently under construction. Be nice to tye early morning Compass crew. They only got a few hours sleep. Oh and eat before going through security.

    What kind of sick twisted monster puts the good food and gift shops before security?!? This is a demented place.

    Check in as late as possible for the early united flight to Denver. . There will be no line at security.

    When they ask you if you have any lip gloss, don't pull out your lip stuff and correct them and tell them it's lip 'balm' - it gets you into some trouble :)

    Check your gate number! These airlines play musical gates first thing in the morning. It's different each time.

    The store pre-security called Duty Free has items probably double taxed not tax-free !

    The odd time there's a line at security, your frequent flyer status, Nexus etc get you NOTHING.

    Love flying out of here: No need to leave 30 minutes for security - maybe 30 seconds. On a slow day. Ordering in the *one* restaurant, meanwhile...

    Looking for Express Air? Go to Hangar 10 across the parking lot (but there's no crossing from the lot--just walk the road or take a taxi).

    The parking police are hardcore! Park by the rental car exit that's not being used. Haha

    Look for a check-in announcement for each flight. They even tell you when to proceed to check in:)

    Get something to read or eat before security because the 'restaurant'/gift store after security is dreadful.

    This "international" airport has nothing beyond security. AND nothing is open despite several flights being scheduled. *grumpy*
