Recently, I had the chance to touch down in one of Canada’s airports, and I thought I’d share my two cents about the experience. Now, I haven’t traveled the world yet, but I’ve been to a few airports in my time, and I reckon I’ve got a decent perspective on things.
First off, hats off to the airline employees. In a world where customer service sometimes feels like it’s taken a backseat, these folks were a breath of fresh air. They were courteous, helpful, and genuinely seemed to care about the passengers. It’s the little things, you know? A smile here, a “how can I assist you?” there – it makes a world of difference, especially after a long flight.
Now, onto the not-so-great part. Boy, was it a trek from the terminal to the car rental area! I felt like I’d walked halfway across Canada by the time I got to my rental car. Maybe it’s just my 46-year-old legs not being what they used to, but a shuttle service or some clearer signage might’ve been nice.
Lastly, let’s talk grub. After a flight, the first thing I want to do (besides stretching my legs) is grab a bite to eat. I was a tad disappointed with the limited food choices available for arrivals. I mean, I get it, most folks probably eat before they board or during the flight, but having a few more options wouldn’t hurt. Especially for those of us who might’ve skipped the airplane food or are just plain peckish.
All in all, it wasn’t a bad experience. Every airport’s got its pros and cons, and while there’s room for improvement, the kindness of the staff sure left a lasting impression. Here’s hoping my feedback reaches the right ears and makes the journey a tad easier for the next guy!
Till next time, safe travels!
