Is there anything special you need to do to get the mobile badge?

Question: so if AC decides to cancel some flights and rebook you on others, you would still get wings on the new flights? Assuming the original flight was booked during the booking window and otherwise qualifies.

Does it matter if the routing changes? If you get rebooked and you call to rework the itinerary.

By AC's definition, it is an existing booking as long as the reference number remains the same.

No Level Up badge for me yet. But then again, no On the go badge either and no car rental badges either.

And of course, no reply from the EYW team either by email or Twitter.

I am start wondering if they are having issue with their email distribution among their team or an issue with their email server all together. I noticed sometimes they do reply within a day, within a 1 to 2 days, or sometimes just no reply at all.

For this "Level Up Badge" inquiry, I waited 2 weeks and got no respond, so I sent them a follow email and that got reply within 2 days.

I contacted the EYW email back at the beginning of October about wifi badges, and they emailed within 6 hours saying to send me a copy of my receipts. Literally nothing after that, then out of the blue, last week, I get an email that says something along the lines of "Dear Mr. Ghost, we have added your missing wifi badge. Let us know if we can help you with anything else." Talk about too little too late.

Seven of us are in a taxi to our Days Inn.

Today has been so uneventful that I haven't needed to update my blog since Mr. Blowhard.

I can't tell, is that a good or bad thing - the uneventful aspect.

Good.

It also means I've been having enough fun that I don't need to write mindless updates to fill my time
