Volunteering in the Airport

One last thing about the airports. USA Today had an article about Volunteer Aides helping confused travelers at the airports:

Last year, about 1,600 Travelers Aid volunteers — including many people who retired from the travel industry or love to travel — assisted some 6.5 million people at 25 airports, including Chicago O'Hare, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas/Fort Worth and Washington Dulles. That's up from around 4 million a year before 9/11, when travel became more difficult, says Travelers Aid CEO Ray Flynt.
