Just got the March/April newsletter which contains some additional information I don't believe has been posted yet. Specifically:
1. Flights on Oneworld partners Cathay, Qantas and Finnair after June 1st will continue to get Cdn+ points, but they will not be qualifying points for elite status. Also, awards can still be booked on these carriers after that date for the foreseeable future.
2. Flights on AA continue to be treated as they are today, and points will qualify for elite status as well as redemption.
3. Lounge program/priority treatment for GOLD and EXEC PLATINUM will end on June 1st, 2000. (No details on AA lounges though.)
4. All partnerships with BA and IB end June 1st, 2000 and awards can only be booked up until then on these carriers, with travel completed by May 31st, 2001.
STAR Alliance membership is still being negotiated, so AC is only STAR carrier giving points and awards to Cdn+ members until then.
Some of this is new to me, but may not be to others...
