Worst airport I’ve ever gone thru....no wheelchairs....have to walk miles....only to find last minute gate changes and you have to walk another 2-3 miles to your next gate...only to be told your too late to board a plane....would be nice if management at the airport could get their acts together.....reallly bad and sad that people are treated this way! Would give it zero stars if I could.

Worst airport I’ve ever been in. I travel a lot. Stupid transportation between gates which are ridiculously far apart. Poorly laid out. Looks like it was designed by a kindergarten class

I’d give it zero if i could. Horrible place, staff are rude and raise their voices at guest. Everything is a long distance away and if you struggle with mobility for any reason you are out of luck. You will struggle. Staff don’t know what they are talking about and will send you all over just to turned away when you get to said destination. I was not allowed on a flight after gate was changed and No announcement made, plane was still there but door closed. staff member here was raising voice and getting mad when we the guests were the one struggling now, no help given. Made to exit secure area, (was in the D wing) had to walk to opposite end of airport 15-20 min walk and then wait in line for 1.5h to have flight rebooked the next morning. Told to go back through security so more walking. I get to security and they scan my boarding pass, have my stuff in the bins and some lady comes and then scolds me that I can’t pas through. So rude, no listening or finding out what is going on. I was told i could go through just to be scolded by someone after which left me in tear as I was in so much pain at this point due to autoimmune disease that effects my joints which were in pain from all the walking. Also hungry at this point as I have celiac disease that requires a strict gluten free diet which is almost impossible to accommodate at the airport restaurants so was living off snacks i made sure to bring that were safe. When I later went to pass security when they said i was allowed i was questioned due to my boarding pass having been scanned. One staff at the security at 4:30 in the morning was particularly rude and yelling at everyone that they need to stack the bins at the end of the line. It was threatening, rude and so unnecessary at 4:30 in the morning when passengers are doing their best. Many of which were there due to mess ups due to the airport and flight companies from the night before. Avoid layovers here at all costs. Sorry if you live in Calgary and have to use this horrible airport as your main one.
