Canadian Airlines Plus - anyone keep Canadian memorabilia?
and what's the oddest thing you've kept/pilfered?
I was digging through my files at work and came across my travel expenses folder from about 5 years ago. In it was a pack of u/g stickers - funny how you could use those stickers on just about ANY fare back then!
I also found a wooden mini-toothbrush with the Canadian chevron burned in the handle. weird stuff I accumulate.

I still carry my last 3 years' CdnGold bag tags on my carry-on!
In YYC a couple of weeks ago I was browsing through the aviation souvenir store and they still have model airplanes for sale with the Canadian colours!
I just remembered that I sadly left a set of the old Executive Class socks I was given years ago on a red-eye YEG-YYZ on a flight on AC a few weeks ago!

I have some of the 'Proud Wings' Parker pens, luggage tags, ticket jackets. I also have a big stack of the in-flight magazines, lots of promotional materials, one of the blue blankets, old timetables, a tray table (kidding), a safety card (I didn't take it myself) and some fond memories.

Any old worthless share certificates?
May 9, 02, 11:41 pm
since Canadian Airlines was acquired by Air Canada in a take-over in 1999, the shares weren't technically, worthless.
near worthless though... certainly not worth tha cost of getting paper printed! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif
Still have all kinds of CP and WD memorabilia haning around, including posters of destinations and even meal services (on WD).

Tons of those J class amenity kits [I must at least 30 of them. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif]. Lots of menus. 747, 767 & DC-10 model planes sitting on my desk back in YYZ. Collections of FF cards as well.
No upgrade stickers left for me as I mailed them all back for points towards the end of CPlus.

Only ExP can do this so unless you were ExP, you didn't miss anything. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif

It's possible that a spoon and some salt and peppers might have somehow ended up in my place - I really haven't a clue how it happenned http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif Also have two models of 747's (Canadian and Proudwings) and a DC-10 with the employee signatures on it, old membership cards and membership guides too.
