To put it simply, Aeroplan is for collecting miles from flying AC or *A partners. It is also where the miles you earn from spending with select credit cards and retail partners gets deposited. It does not give you the AC Altitude status and that is what you need to have benefits such as lounge access.

That is why I attached the AC Altitude chart. If you look at it, you will see at the bottom that AC Altitude 50K status (only earned from flying) is what gets your friend *Gold.

If Iíve not been clear, then perhaps others can explain it again.
