[quote citation="YVR Passenger" url=""]Ann, a volunteer at the information booth, saved the day when I came through YVR! I had left some items in my hotel room in Vancouver and only realized when I reached the airport to travel to Montreal. I didn't have time to return to the hotel without missing my flight so got through security and tried to call the hotel from my mobile. My mobile would not connect and I was looking for someone to help me with the dialling codes.

Ann checked the number on the web and then immediately used her own mobile to call the number and handed me the phone once connected. I was so relieved to get through before I flew and she would not accept any payment for the use of her phone. I could have hugged her! She was fabulous![/quote]
