Last Friday was my first trip through DCA since the move and I can confirm what the general consensus is here - it is not a pleasant experience at all.

I was flying domestic YVR-YUL today (and am still stuck in YUL as I write this as YUL-LHR has gone mechanical). At YVR, they said no case, no cables, no iPod, no sleeve - you are required to carry...

I flew through YYJ for YVR this afternoon and, as it was very quiet, took the opportunity to ask one of the CATSA people about laptop bags, etc. Mine is a standard sized Tumi and she said that it...

Typical government - no thought and no clarity. So I'm allowed to bring a laptop. What do I carry it in? What if other things like a book, or a magazine or the cables for the laptop are also in...

Can't agree with you more. Every little change that we have to make in our day-to-day behaviour is a little victory for these people. I'm sure they find it laughable that they've turned the simple...
