A special offer for the Holiday Season

Before many of you head out for your holiday journeys, we wanted to give you the opportunity to request your upgrade even further ahead of time.

As a special bonus for the holiday season, all Top Tier members will have an expanded eUpgrades booking window. Itís applicable to upgrade requests made between December 10 and December 30, 2012, when traveling with a Tango Plus fare on all flights operated by Air Canada or Air Canada Express. (Yes... that's all flights - including international!)

The expanded upgrade window will be as follows:
Air Canada Super Elite - Within 14 days of departure date
Air Canada Elite - Within 7 days of departure date
Air Canada Prestige - Within 4 days of departure date
As always, you can request your eUpgrade online at aircanada.com/upgrade, by calling Air Canada Reservations or your travel agent. Note that there will be no changes to the number of eUpgrade Credits required - only the booking window.

... and for this period we have eliminated our normal practice of zeroing out R inventory prior to the upggrade window opening.

Anyway, nice jesture ACTT at a time when there should be plenty of availability.

"Itís applicable to upgrade requests made between December 10 and December 30, 2012"

If I have a flight on Jan. 6, does this mean I can still request an upgrade for this flight on Dec. 30? (I am AC E)

Cool-made it easy to use my wife's Elite account and her expiring credits for my next upgrade! She is done collecting status miles this year and flying on Aeroplan reward ticket (from her account too) up front.

But everyone can request earlier, hence the exact same problem of limited supply.
