| Calgary was the third connection of a 24 hour day of International travel. First of all, they did not connect our luggage to our last flight, we had to go collect from a baggage carrousel, re-check it, and go through security all over again .. after a ridiculously long line up to declare on a machine that was difficult to understand in our extremely sleep deprived state, with a single customs officer checking print outs. Filling out scannable forms on our flight, giving them to our stewardess as we left the plane was a MUCH more efficient process. Where is signage? Big exit signs is not helpful for those catching a connecting flight. Gate signs would be helpful! Then there’s the actual terminal ... GateA03 was super confusing to find .. no electric walk ways, long soulless ugly tunnels to walk... unhelpful c/s guy in a cowboy hat directing us in the opposite direction of the signs made no sense. Finally find our gate and it’s literally a cement and metal corridor opening straight onto the runway .. seems that’s the finished product? Ugly and depressing .. windows are high so you are staring at ugly metal panels while waiting. Nowhere near enough seats, loads of people standing. You can do better YYC. Embarrassed to call you my home town. Glad I moved away years ago. We really wanted a nice cozy restaurant with big comfy chairs to eat a hot meal, check our email, and relax. Instead there’s a loud kid’s play area attached to a convenience store that sells beverages with a seating area with uncomfortable tables and chairs that screech loudly when pushed back on the floor. We sat in the carpeted area until our 3.5 hour layover was over. Not ideal.
