My old boss let AC use his Gimli hangar and facilities to handle the recovery of the 767. When asked afterwards what AC owed them, Barney said "how about a couple of free passes for me and the Mrs.?"

Later that day someone from AC showed up with a pair of lifetime passes for Barney and Mrs. Lamm. Of course they were both in their 70's when that happened but I was told they traveled quite a bit using their free tickets.

My friend's parents and her baby brother were using their passes to get to Edmonton to visit the grand parents. Her Dad was a mechanic with AC and ended up helping out in the flight deck as he had just been qualified on the 767. Amazing story all around.
