FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: jc94
This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition and 2017 edition

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. More Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs should be posted elsewhere on FT as should topics better suited to other forums such as Travel Products for questions about luggage or Travel Photography for discussion about cameras.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

Stunned here in PDX to hear from another patron at a micro-brewery that he was gone. And then as if on cue it started raining to somehow further dampen my mood. RIP to a one-of-a-kind maverick.

And the rout is on with one quarter remaining to complete the sweep.

But that Yogi Berra dude... so who knows.

The sheer range of people I'm seeing express that they were touched by his work in some way is incredible. It's so sad that a man who made so many people happy was not happy himself.

So on that note does it mean that hot meals on cold plates is no longer something that is worthy of a complaint?

(For the record, I'm joking here).

This is FT and therefore nobody is allowed to complain.
