At the last minute however, a family emergency came up and I was forced to make a trip to Toronto. I decided then to simply buy another ticket to Vancouver and use the return portion of my original ticket to fly back to Montreal. Upon arriving at the airport for the return flight, I was told by Joust Air that my return ticket had been cancelled. I was told by a Joust service representative that because I had not boarded the plane in Montreal, the entire ticket was made void. I would like to make a formal complaint against this policy. I was not told of this before buying my ticket and no other airlines I have contacted have similar policies. I have attached a photocopy of my original ticket to this letter as well as a receipt of the ticket I purchased to return to Montreal. I am hoping you can assist me in getting a refund for this ticket. As well, I hope there may be something to prevent this from occurring again in the future. Thank you, Wanda Breen 163.

What: Aces High Theme Park Where: Bellings, Montana When: Since 1987 “Aces High was worth the trip.

You'll get wet on the water rides. Incredible fun!” - Barbara Fleet, Colorado Springs – “If you're planning on spending a lot of time in the theme park, I recommend staying at The Royal Flush. This is the resort hotel located next to Aces High. Just show your room card at the rides and you'll be taken to the shorter Gold Members line. You'll save hours of time!” - Dave Goldblum, Bangor – “As usual, this theme park contains long lines and grumpy kids. Be prepared.
