Don't forget, those are "separate issues."

Thank you for the update guys. I just booked a Europe trip with 2 legs on Lufthansa this Sunday because Swiss wasn't available. Called back to change it to Swiss and saved about $950 in surcharges after the change fee

Thanks for the info.

I'm starting to look at a mRTW and this might be a lot of help.

Now if they can get the two SA airlines re-connected, I'll be away.

But still having to pay that change fee (which was recently raised) is bogus.

Thanks.. I had to call in to book 2 Tickets but it made life MUCH Cheaper.

Just booked (All J seats except initial YOW-YUL flight)
YOW-YUL - AC
YUL-IST - TK
IST-ATH - TK STOPOVER
ATH-IST - TK
IST-BCN - TK STOPOVER
BCN-ZRH - LX
ZRH-YUL - LX
YUL-YOW - AC

I should of been able to do it online but online engine kept throwing the YOW to ATH segment onto AC or LH Metal from YUL-ATH. So I had to call in and book it.

230K Pts and $460 all in for 2 tickets including the $30 Call in Fee per ticket.

I booked on Swiss today as well! Business class TATL 😊

All J class
YYZ EWR on AC
EWR CPH - stopover - on SAS
CPH GVA on SAS

LUG ZHR on LX
ZRH YUL on LX
YUL YYZ on AC

110k points, $226.46 in fees, plus $33.90 call centre charge.

Very excited to try both SAS and SWISS!

It took some work though... I spent over 3 hours on the phone with both Aeroplan and Amex (they had some IT error delaying Amex point transfer)

Swiss being available makes me wanna re-work my whole mini-rtw...might have to look into it.

I can tell you CPH-GVA will be probably pretty lame. I flew ARN-BRU and AMS-ARN honestly, both were LCC level (I was in Econ) seat pitch was garbage, no IFE, no food, no legroom. By contrast I flew Norwegian from ARN-RIX and that was much more enjoyable...strange things happening in Europe for us outsiders. I am jealous though about the EWR-CPH flight! I was agonizing trying to find even Y space TATL from either coast for days on end and found nothing. So good on ya for grabbing it.

Thanks! I'm mostly looking forward to the TATL portions mostly 😊 short haul flights are pretty basic regardless of cabin I think!

EWR to CPH was on a Saturday in August .. try checking satudays perhaps?

I don't believe SK still features business class on European flights. Last time I flew CDG-OSL, was Y only. No matter what your Aeroplan itinerary says.

I thought if you buy a 'biz' seat from Aeroplan, you just get the highest Y fare on SK - you get to sit in the seats at the front? Correct?

Correct. And you get the miserable food they sell for free.

Nice to see BDS once again available, as LX is the only *A carrier serving a few days weekly. Never should have happened with website outages for 'updates' multiple times weekly for hours at a time.

Now they need to get AV and CM up and running asap.

Aeroplan awards are useless when starting from PTY as I am now, no matter what Aeroplan Marketing likes to say about the 'myths are Aeroplan'.
