I failed pretty hard

They change it up every time too. First time, I had a United card. Second time was EgyptAir.

I would have liked a head start on Gold on United, but I'll stick with my AC status for now .

Reading the T&C, you may be better off picking a less popular program instead of Aeroplan as your prize choice.

I have this suspicion that the suitcase would work better on a tablet. Just due to how you have to make these sweeping gestures to get it to move.

EDIT: Never mind. Tried it last night on the nexus and it wasn't even possible to get them to move.

OTOH, I did get it down to 10s eventually.

The suitcase killed me as well. And a few other fails along the way. I was called an Infrequent Flyer. I guess I should be insulted. Plus I fly Swiss regularly and didn't recognize the FA outfit. How do others do it more than once? I was invited to share on FB or Twitter but I don't do either. Oh well.

Ditto for me as well. That suitcase is a killer. Will try on a tablet once I get home.

I could't move the tiles with Safari in my iPad.

I was using the touchpad on macbook air, but my problem was I'm not good at that type of game! I was also tricked by the FA uniform on my first try (all three airlines I have never flown), but the other 3 were quick.

Got it down to 10 secs after a few attempts, suitcase question was 5 secs alone, and with help from a couple of repeat questions.
