Now that's service!

Our son had a booking on Orca Air to arrive in Qualicum Beach from Vancouver on Saturday. Due to fog, the airline called him early Saturday to ask him if he would mind coming to the airport earlier, and sent a taxi they paid for to his home near Stanley Park to take him to the airport. They flew him to Nanaimo and then paid for the Island Chauffeur to transport him to our door.
Now, that is customer service!
