Travel agent for AC Flex bookings

Could anyone recommend (via PM perhaps?) a Toronto-based travel agent for complex Flex bookings? Someone who can match the ITA printouts?

Now that we cannot use Orbitz for upgradeable AC long-hauls I have to find one. Calling AC reservations only works for simple itineraries, their joke of a booking engine reverts to Latitude for anything w/ more than 2 stops. Also just tried the Flight Centre down the street and ended up with the worse schedule and $60 more than ITA quoted. Sad.

Any advice?

Uhh... I booked this over the phone, based on results from ITA:


AC res agents are more than capable of doing this.

That was part of Earn Your Wings v1.

That was $1736.47

There were three other tickets:
YYJ-YVR-SEA-YVR-YYJ
YYJ-YVR-SEA-YVR-YYJ
SFO-LAX (UA)

All that, plus two hotel nights, was about $2900.

It was more of a "badge run" than a mileage run

Anyway, my point is just that this can absolutely be done over the phone. If it can be ticketed at all, AC can do it.

I've got nothing for the OP, but that is one crazy itinerary CC.
