FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: tcook052
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 previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition , and 2016 edition.

The 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 hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs or should be posted elsewhere on FT as should topics better suited to other forums such as Travel Products for questions about luggage or Travel Photography for discussion about cameras.

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.

Nah, my observation was that for some of these companies, execs knew what was coming and didn't know what to do to change their companies to survive, excel and be successful in the new world order. Some failed, some are still failing, others gobbled or got gobbled and thankfully, a few of the new bright stars came along.

I do not believe all new media and social media is useful or worth bothering with, and I believe other ideas still in formation will also result in radical change.

What most companies fail to realize is they cannot force a consumer or customer to like them or buy their products or services.

There is no longer such a thing as NBC's concept from over 30 years ago "Must See TV". And this applies to way more than TV and media.

It will be great to watch, but I'm thinking I will need a better chair and better snacks for this show.

I'm sure I'll know about it - since it's more than likely I'll end up having to arrange another (epic) Peever/1 ride.

All this stuff is making me hungry..
We could order a pizza, but my current location sucks for that.
I'd also love some chicken tikka and Singapore Noodles, but my current location sucks for that too.
Or I could break into my fresh supply of treats

2014: 25%
2015:30%
2016: 50%
2017:?
New TV Series from David Fincher, The Crown S2, Stranger Things S2, Black Mirror, Bojack Horseman, House of Cards, Orange is the Black

At some point, for most people, it will reach 100%. Garbage shows like NCIS or Suits will go die and new long form drama will take over. (Perhaps already have?)

Netflix...pffffttt...LOL

Wait until you learn how to use kodi.

Ok I have to admit seeing Hokkaido Melon with Mascarpone cheese inside... Interesting even for Japan Kit Kats!

Had​​​​ to suffer through Thai Mookata. I'm so full.
