Got my 2000 miles. Wish I had time to do the crazy routings, but it just happened that I needed to do an AQD run to E75K and was able to earn an additional few miles.

Got my 500K miles. Sooner than I expected, tbh, given the other weirdness with this version of the contest.

Really count ?

The rules say Bonus Aeroplan Miles are not Air Canada Altitude Qualifying Miles and do not count towards Air Canada Altitude Status. Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be credited up to three weeks after the required number of Wings has been collected; every 2,000 Wings will earn 2,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles. Aeroplan Flight Rewards redemption tickets are not eligible for mileage accumulation and will not qualify for this PROMOTION.

All flights flown during the Earn Your Wings Promotion count toward the accumulation of Altitude Qualifying Dollars (AQDs) and 2018 Altitude status, except for flights that are part of an Air Canada Vacations package. AQDs are earned directly from booking and travelling within the Air Canada Altitude program. The PROMOTION does not award any additional AQDs.

They posted towards Aeroplan Diamond status (yay! I get to save on market fare rewards), but not towards Altitude status.

Speaking of which, I need to request a refund on two segments. Otherwise it would have been 63.

I skimmed the trip log quickly. Was that where you missed a YYZ-YQB-YYZ turn due to late inbound or something?

YUL-YQB was delayed for mechanical reasons, causing us to miss YQB-YYZ. Luckily, the last two flights of the day were YQB-YYZ-YQB, so it was an easy recovery. We just went to the hotel earlier than planned.

Very disappointing; I tried to zoom in & scan your barcodes, but none of them are readable. Can you post at a slightly higher resolution next time?

Finally submitted a refund request for my IRROPS. Got me back almost $500. More than I expected.
