      July 2016 Update   07/28/2016

      A few months ago, the previous three year term on the site's hosting ended. Although there's been little activity over the past few years, I didn't want to see all our historical content disappear. The site was funded by members in the early years, so it didn't seem right to let the site slide into oblivion. I've updated the backend software, and hosting has been acquired for the next three years. As a result of changes with the forum software, you may find you have initial trouble logging in. If you can't sign in, try using your e-mail address instead of your screen name. Regards, Cedric Nagy

  1. No I will be burning off 2014 Ecerts until March 1.
  2. I will go into the next Aeroplan year with over 120 eupgrade points and will be at 60K miles by March 1. So, I am fine for next year and will see what 2016 brings because I will achieve SE status again. If the economy slows down as appears to be imminent then AC maybe backing off some of the worst stuff in order to keep market share. In any event I will enjoy not having to WL too often for upgrades. I have always taken it one year at a time and still get good value from of my AC status.
  3. That is purely a rumour that I have never heard. AC would be the first airline that I know of to do this and they are generally not leaders. You will most probably see less opportunity to UG from lower flex fares however.
  4. If the TTC is a benefit on a cold winter morning in a snowstorm I will pass on that one. If one arrives at midnight is it still a benefit? The other benefit we miss is the comedy act known as Rob Ford. Also some people have to commute to Oakville for work from the big smoke.
  5. Get a Platinum AMEX and valet park at T1. the valet parking cost is not charged and you get a 15% discount on your parking. As much as I travel i pay for my AMEX fees via the parking discount.
  6. Ok lets. you are the complete asshole, since you asked for straight on stuff. You have an axe to grind with AC that has nothing to do with flying. I defend them because they take me where I want to go pretty much when I want to go and almost always in J. So in my estimate its assholes like you who are the trolls. If you ever called me a traitor to my face you would not like my response. But then again you are in sushi land pretending to be someone when you are in reality a fucking nobody when it comes to travel and commentary on AC.
  7. At least I am an AC customer and not just an antagonist living in sushi land far from the action.
  8. yea really. I don't need to back anything up as it is info I pick up from reliable sources. Just remember where you heard it when it becomes official. I do fly a lot on AC unlike you or the "QC my ass" guy who thinks AC dislikes his City which is dog patch compared to YYC. 150K miles so far this year on AC alone, and counting. You just like to try and rub your dislike of AC into management because they told you to get lost a few years ago with your dumb idea. You have to be an idiot, or worse, a QC to be on a blog where you don't even use the company's offerings. You must be part of the Ken Hamer fan club and it must really piss you off that AC has their act together, are profitable while growing quite a lot with new planes and services.
  9. Good for them. AC seems to fly where they don't need subsidies and make money on their own expertise. Ergo they drop YEG flights because of all the bottom feeders that seem to fly from there and leave them for 2nd rate carriers.
  10. Well up yours too..........QC my ass. Any new flights coming from the most subsidized airport in Canada.
  11. As AC continues to roll out their 787's more and more exclusive privileges will be introduced for high yield customers. They have plans to split some major lounges like the asian carriers do and will go to zonal boarding with a clear path for high yield pax and SE's as one exclusive boarding line.
  12. Ah yes we have seen the constipation in your eyes. QC my ass.
  13. QC my ass. You are a blind to facts as the soilers who signed a marginal player like Pouliot for $5MM a season. YEG = losers Why don't you restart errorplan if things are as bad as you seem to think. AC just announced very good BIS numbers even w/o your lousy business which they obviously don't miss. They are profitable because they got rid of the freeloader bums like you. You hate AC so much you spend your life reading every post about AC on all the blogs. Hypocrisy in full bloom.
  14. QC my ass. You appear not to know any real facts unless they are slanted in your direction.
  15. at least i'm honest and not so biased as to be blind. QC my ass!!!
