    Not at all surprised to see YVR at the top of the list for airports within the Amerosphere: it's one of those few airports whose amenities are acceptable on both sides of the lychgates.

    YVR's not quite my 'home' airport, but I daresay that I spend more time connecting through there than anywhere else.

    Day's pleasance to all,

    I'm sure YVR deserves top place. Curious to see YHZ squeaking into 10th.

    I've only visited 5 of the 10, so I must rectify that. I have managed 7 of the top 10 international airports as reported in the sister article here.

    I have been to 10/10 of the North American airports listed and 8/10 of the International. Still need to get to DOH and ICN.

    Only if you don't need to deal with CBSA (or Immigration Canada as I will always know them...) otherwise the Canadian airport experience is widely known to be the worst....

    NEXUS is your friend to deal with the unpleasantness of both CBSA and US Customs and Immigration - not to mention priority security clearance. Best use of $50.

    If you are a frequent traveller to LHR they now offer a similar card to NEXUS. Only problem is it costs 75 pounds per year. T2 at Heathrow is generally not overcrowded and if one gets fast track from AC there is no need for the expensive UK version.

    I looked at that UK pass until I saw the 75 pounds per year, then decided to give it a pass.

    On the other hand, Hong Kong's eChannel is free for frequent flyers with Star Alliance Gold status on Air Canada (and for some others). It's very fast and efficient.
