This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested the original 2004 - 2014 thread on the topic may be found here.

That original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. More Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about other airline/hotel loyalty programs should be posted elsewhere on FT.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply her as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

I'm betting at ANA lounge HND, all will be working and sparkling.

Probably with chocolate sprinkles on top as well.

Edit: With a box of this next to the sink.

Next September, I am traveling CDG > YUL > LAX. I am a Citi Prestige / PP Select card holder. With that itinerary, will I be able to enter the lounge? First time going international since I actually knew of these things!

Japan... what a joke that Canada is when it comes to being clean and functioning all the time.

Looks like you can access "Salon ICare" at CDG with your PP membership. Sadly there's no lounge accessible to you at YUL.

Reminder to those who don't fly far away often or just don't fly too often:

Just because you are taking off from airport X does not mean that everyone's body clock is of or near X's time zone. In fact, some of your fellow pax may be on time zone X+/-6,8,10,14,etc hours, so their sleeping/eating/nature break habits will most likely be completely other-side-of-the-world from yours.

Will be at the HND NH lounge tomorrow (Monday Japan time) for AC006.
If any fellow FTer is going to be there would be nice to say hi, have some sake, and then get back to work on my iPad

I will be the guy wolfing down the noodles, chicken nuggets, and kakiage udon, whilst washing 'em down with Japanese Whisky.

Yes, I washed down the sake with the chicken nuggets.
As I was leaving the lounge I thought too bad they don't do take-out

I know!

I always (with remorse) stuff myself to the hilt in that lounge... then I ask for the Flex meal 6 hours into the flight... then end up getting the hot noodle soup and dim sum instead!

I was thrilled to beat the "breakfast rush" at the Sake tasting station, and even had time to buy some treats
