YYC old school FIDS

Growing up I remember the arrivals and departures on Calgary cable TV.

I recall it was yellow backgrounds / blue background depending on arrivals or departures.

Then at some point (early 90s?) the FIDS moved to black background with alternating yellow/white/green text.

Anyone happen to have a photo of either?

WS appears to be adding MSP for S25.

Effective April 27:
WS1611 YYC 10:30 - 14:12 MSP 737 D
WS1610 MSP 15:15 - 17:12 YYC 737 D

Not something I was expecting to see, especially loaded this far ahead.

Looks like there's a new set of cancellations for the strike notice by the Westjet mechanics. It's becoming a bit of a circus now...third time in just over a year even if excluding the Encore situation.

Interesting that UA is using YYC to rotate a plane.

YYC-IAD so far has been a 737 that does a DEN-YYC-IAD routing, but IAD-YYC is an A320 going the other way doing IAD-YYC-DEN.

There are aome odd and really confusing changes to the connector hall linking the main terminal with the D (formerly International) concourse.

Going from the C to D concourse … the signage was always really bad, and hasn’t been improved. (Small signs for “D” and “E” are posted at right-angles to oncoming walkers — so they’re not visible until you walk almost right up to the drywall that appears to be a dead end to the hallway.)

The change: now when you go from C to D, you’re funneled into a narrow, one-way, windowless, signless hall that puts you out at the exit from D gate security, right before the “D” duty free shop.

And going from the D concourse back to C (or to domestic baggage claim), you now stop at a manned desk before entering a door (formerly a boarding gate, it appears) at D70. Once you tell her where you’re going, she sends you down the hall … a former boarding passage which spits you out via one of the abandoned boarding gates in the connector concourse. You exit behind the old/mothballed check-in counter for what was one of the C70 gates. (It's just weird. The gate counter and terminals and signs are all still there -- it's like exiting through some abandoned 'ghost town' of a gate.) And like "C to D", this path from "D to C" is also one-way only.

For something as simple as walking between the D gates and the A/B/C gates, the whole thing seems waaaaay over-engineered, too complicated, and just poorly signed. Two different hallways, neither all that intuitive, one guarded by a YYC agent before entering, and all with a lack of effective wayfinding.

For a major domestic<>international connection process at a pretty big airport, wow, it’s a pretty bad UX.

There must be a reason, though. It wouldn’t make sense to go through this much “complication” without a purpose.

Are they changing D back to being a sterile international concourse now? (And I f not, then why these weird changes?)

I went from the C gates to the D gates a few weeks ago and saw the change. I just figured it was to get you to walk through duty free.

The way back makes zero sense.

That area just needs a be connected since sterile zone is likely never coming back.

Entering the TPAC market seems to have been a big success for WS. And to think just a few years ago it seemed virtually impossible that WS would ever launch Asia.

AA manager at YYC seems to believe ORD will be extended into winter on Envoy. Nothing yet bookable.

This would be great considering ORD drops to a single daily on UA this winter

^In this weekends update, AA extended ORD to the end of the October, showing a E75 from Oct. 7-26.

Presently I don’t see it scheduled into the winter season yet.
