Worst Airport to be stuck at

by web-administrator (September, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review by Ugh) Stuck in this horrible place, boyfriend and i were resting with our backs to the wall in the upper level and were told by security that's not allowed upstairs, even though I later saw other people doing it with no issue. It's now 1 am and there are two employees 'working' on the hydraulic lift doing what I can only understand as decorating, while reversing constantly. In reverse the lift makes an ear splitting beeping as it backs up, great in a loud place but there are probably less than 30 people in this whole airport, including employees. When I asked how long they'd be and what they were doing they said, 'working all night.' I watched them go up, point at things, climb down and rearrange garbage bins on the floor... sooo.... it's a little bit more than mildly infuriating. No other staff around to ask/beg for qu continued >>

Really decent airport

by web-administrator (June, 2015)

Where: Landside
Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) Slept on landside because I was too cheap for a hotel. It's a small airport, and new. Pros: free wifi, clean, generally deserted, and no sketch people wandering in in middle of the night. safe (which i can't say for the city) Cons: nothing's open, and airside closes around midnight. security WILL kick you out. tim hortons opens around 5 or 6am, i believe, but nothing before that.

Richardsons designers need a slap

by MTL_scott (July, 2015)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Clean and bright
Cons: no loungable, layoverable comfortable pre-security seating, rare plug-ins

July 8th, yesterday I was delayed 15 minutes too long by, what was called an upper atmosphere lightning alarms.This made me miss my connection to Saskatoon.Westjet pleasantly rebooked me to winnipeg where I would sleep and then get a morning flight. Ok, I can deal with sleeping in less than ideal situations. I really can't deal with Winnipeg's new airport. I was made to totally exit the post-security area where there are numerous couches and benches to the pre-security area where there are some individual-seat benches layed out around the perimeter of the building. Not comfortable due to the sectional style, possibly designed to prevent sleeping. So I looked for a carpeted area I could possible tuck away to, the only place with carpeting is right beside the luggage merry-go rounds. I scouted for outlets, literally only finding two, only o continued >>

If your layover is overnight you are not allowed to stay

by web-administrator (January, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review by Bobasha) I have never been to a major airport that kicks people out on layovers overnight but ywg does. You have to leave the secure area and risk sleeping by doors directly to outside. As a solo traveler i find this unsafe. Don't route through here overnight if you can help it. air Canada does not tell you this.

Winnipeg airport disappointing

by web-administrator (March, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) What a disappointment for a new facility. No where to put down your coffee in seating areas, baggage checking requires you to carry your luggage to a belt far away from the agents (dumb design) few places to rest comfortably between connections they could do better
