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.

Happy New Year Everyone!

2016 was quite a ride, with the start of AQD, eup promoís running all year, buying up to the next status level, bidding for J upgrades, referbing of the 777 and 333 fleet, expansion of rouge, wifi on all narrowbodies, no wifi on widebodyís in fall 2017 (even though it was advertised by AC), lounge food had huge improvements earlier this year, lounge food reduced to only pickles in the last part of this year, and 747ís were spotted at YVR.

Letís see what 2017 has in store!

How dare you!

It's not even 2017 yet in Europe, let alone in AC's home country.

The Aeroplan call centre isn't even closed yet!

This should be in the 2016 thread.

I'm in Germany and it never occurred to me that I'd win any NY battle with FTers

Though I almost went to Australia, where I might have had a chance
