    If you're departing for USA, good to know that US Customs doesn't open until 4:30am.

    The domestic Nexus/FastTrack line is not very efficient; next time I will consider using the regular line.

    normally you go through US immigration and customs here at YVR, except for flights leaving after 8pm, then you do it when you land. (E gates are US-bound only with pre-clearance: D gates are int'l)

    After travelling this year around the US and Europe, I can honestly say this is still the best airport. FREE wireless Internet and free luggage carts. Plus an amazing duty free store.

    If you don't have your luggage beside you and sleep, security will wake you and think you are homeless.... Mine was stuck between international and domestic waiting for it to open at 6am.

    The Fairmont Hotel is the best airport hotel. If you're stuck and have to stay there, sign up for a Presidents Club membership online beforehand -- it's free! -- to get complimentary WiFi access.

    The observation area (4th floor, domestic terminal) is a great rainy day - or early morning - hangout for young kids & their caregivers. Nonstop entertainment & easy to get to by Skytrain.

    US international terminal duty free and no-service dining are sick jokes.

    Best airport in North America. Beautiful, clean and efficient. The aboriginal art and water features contribute to a wonderful arrival experience.

    Amazing place to spend the waiting hours! A lot of facilities for the travellers, a nice staff and the best washrooms I've ever seen in an airport.

    Vancouver International is Air Canada and Canada's gateway to the Pacific. Free WiFi, good shops and native Canadian art make it a good connecting hub. Unfortunately, peak times can mean long waits.
