Is there any certainty of it even happening this year?

Really excited to participate for the first time this year(if it happens)! Win/win for me as it will guarantee my spend requirement to hit SE and will earn a few extra RTW trips in F

EYW 2017 speculation split off and into its own thread from posts in the 2016 EYW thread.

Do you think you could hit drunk cargo / canadian cow levels?

Reading through canadiancow trip logs, I think I'll be able to find the time to do them this year(self employed). In terms of figuring out how to do those insane routings while maximizing time/cost efficiency and trying to stay alive while doing them... I'll need some help from the pros . I'll probably try to hit bottom 5 of top prize.

When did EYW start last year and how long did it last?

Also, I'm a bit mind blown by how carefully and perfectly canadiancow planned out and executed his trips for the contest. Really impressive stuff ^

I'd like to know if Air Canada is dumb enough to arbitrarily exclude me from two of these pricing promotions in a row. Please do.

Let's please focus on the thread topic and not wider matters.

Thinking about this a bit more, it will definitely be a lot more difficult for me to deal with IRROPS without concierge so I probably would have to take more time to have longer connecting times in between flights.

I wonder if it would make more sense buying a 3 month unlimited latitude flight pass. Were FP's allowed for last EYW?

The participants can tell you more but here is the Air Canada Earn Your Wings 2016 "How to Play" page.
