Halifax Stanfield International Airport is THE WORST!

F-BOMB WARNING: I know you're not supposed to utter the B-word in an airport (or an "aerodome" as it's called in the BOLD lettered WARNING as you enter the security area). But sweet, merciful baby Jayzus, it's almost impossible to avoid a carpet bombing of F-BOMBS when you attempt to depart from Stanfield International Airport in Halifax. I should buy lottery tickets more often, considering the number of times I am "randomly" selected to step into the full body scanner at security! The airport handles more than 4 million passengers in a good year (non-COVID) and I end up being selected 3-4 times out of the 3-6 times we might travel through that airport in a year. On this latest trip, more than half a dozen passengers booked on the first flight out were bumped off to a later flight because there was sufficient security staffing(?!!) There had to be 400 people in the security line at 6:30 am and they had a SINGLE lane opened to check carry-on! ONE LANE open. FIVE LANES closed. Enjoy your trip to Nova Scotia. It's a beautiful place to visit and vacation. It's just pain in the ass trying to get home!
