Seriously...! Not easy with a baby!
Holy, LX have stopped selling revenue seats until this AP issue is resolved!?? Wow. We need CBC to intervene and make this right.
Until then, guess everyone in SUI will have to route via Germany.

Why don't you intervene and buy his tickets? I mean, since you're making it sound like this is no big deal, maybe you can help out.

I have tweeted @SophiaharrisCBC on the above Twitter exchange.

I implore everyone else to contact Sophia Harris at CBC [email protected]

You support AC execs bonuses by paying scamcharges for flying LH instead LX

Aeroplan just keeps making more money from scam charges. Air Canada loves it because they share 50% of the money.

​​​​​​You ll be waiting for Aeroplan to unblock Swiss until the Leafs win the cup.
I took your advice and went ahead to book my mRTW itinerary. I also learn that I could do the "touristanbul" offered by Turkish Airline

I fully support people burning their miles as they can. I'll be doing that too. But this is BS, Aeroplan advertises all the partners they can earn/redeem on...why not put a huge disclaimer on your main paige "Air China, Copa, Swiss and Avianca currently unavailable due to 'IT issues'" feel free to add, "cannot book intl to intl awards currently either".

This program could be great, even with the rules as they are set out, I really believe it's one of the better programs out there. We can all avoid YQ and using the routing rules to our advantage. But when you take 4 major players off the table...I can't really defend it anymore.

Aeroplan (and even Air Canada), please switch to Amadeus!

Ugh. I swear it was back. I did a search from IST-YUL, and in the results were IST-ZRH on TK, ZRH-YUL on LX. I had a minor shock, and ran a search directly from ZRH-YUL, and I had no LX results. Again tried IST-YUL, and there was also no LX. Ugh.

I already have my flights booked for this summer, it is a combination of a transatlantic and intraeuropean flights in business with TAP and LX return with LX via ZRH-YUL (yay!)

However while looking at the reservation in TAP's website I found this message when I tried to add my email to the reservation:

ZRH TBA - RI3 FLIGHT FIRMING TOOL WEBSERVICE OFFIC - A

Any idea what that means?
