    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.

    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.

    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

    #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/

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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).

    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...
