Christmas bonus early and prestige going to elite upgrade window

Hi,

I have two questions:

1.) I have a TATL in L on Dec. 11th, is there any chance the Christmas special could be extended and the fare be upgraded using SWU? The past week has been exhausting and would really appreciate some comfort...

2.) The above mentioned TATL will push me over 35k (I'm currently prestige), I have the return flight in M on Dec. 2, since I will presumably be Elite in their systems by then, does the 4 day SWU upgrade window apply?

Thank you!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this isn't that big of a bonus (TATL) - otherwise I think we'd see many more MRs for SE happening next week with leftover SWUs

Between December 14, 2010 and January 9, 2011, Air Canada Top Tier members can use these upgrade certificates to upgrade from any Tango Plus and Latitude fare when travelling within Canada and between Canada and the United States!

Same as last year:

And enjoy it this year, odds are that next year there will be none of these promotions. Or if there are, it will cost you 9 ecredits instead of 10 or something like that....

1) At 2 days out, try calling to see if there is R space available on your flight - if there is, pay to upgrade to M on the way there.

2) If the miles post, you will be able to upgrade at the 4 day window if you remove and re-enter your Aeroplan number. Likely, you will need to call in and have a human do this for you - they will be able to see your mile total and override any P-limits that the system has in place.
