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.

T-6ish in AUH. The party at the PH has started, and our villa is shaking from the bass.

Am I allowed to post in this thread if it's 2017 where I am? Or is that OT?

Following up to this thread...

@SparseFlyer: Were you looking for my opinion of the LX E Gates Lounge at ZRH? If so, 10/10 for a J/*G lounge!

@yyznomad: Actually, I'm not a huge fan of the TK IST Lounge. Granted, it's massive. But I've always found its aesthetics lacking, often quite crowded, and not great for privacy.

Anyway, since the other thread got closed on NZ time, what can we do?

The only subject(s) that is/are not allowed in the Forum Lounge thread for this board is anything Air Canada, or anything that is the subject(s) of any other subforum of Flyertalk.

So, yes, you are, especially since the 2017 forum lounge thread is now locked.
