2000 Qualification Levels/Upgrades Info

Just got of the phone with my contact at CPlus Operations in Vancouver and here's the update I got - the EP and Gold packages are currently in mail tubs around their offices and are ready to go out - they had been waiting for the new 2000 Membership Guides to come from the printer. Why new guides? Well we all knew there would be some changes coming and some will be made specifically to prevent FF's from switching from Aeroplan to CPlus or vice versa for higher tier status. The old qualification levels for Club, Gold and EP will be reintroduced (same as two years ago) and the comp stickers will be adjusted - there will no more black 'Ultimates' (like Aeroplan), however, there will be "more reds and greys" according to my source.

I also wanted to let everyone know that CPlus Interactive will now allow full on-line booking for AC flights (with the 500 point bonus, although virtual ticketing is still not available (paper only). This means I can fly Air BC from YVR-YYJ and get more points if I book with CP than if I book with AC's on-line booking service. zero vs 500!

I may be warming up to this monopoly after all.
