Bah! Apparently I can't post URLs because I'm a lurker and have <5 posts.

Same url as the pdf for 2018 but with 2019 instead.

altitude dot aircanada dot com / static / pdf / 2019_EN dot pdf

I don't see any changes.

+1 ... I don't see any changes either except those previously mentioned (eg early recognition for 25k, lower requal across tiers)

BTW - Thanks for posting the link InTheAirGuy

see one change in language... anyone know if this is actually a change?

Priority Rewards on Air Canada flights for SE100 now says "Access to any unsold Economy seat, plus additional Economy or premium cabin seat (Fixed Mileage Rate)", whereas LY it said "Access to any unsold Economy seat, plus additional Business seats (Classic Rate)". Think this is a change?

It wouldn't have been a good year for AC to make any changes given all the uncertainty so I'm not surprised. Next year is the one to watch.

I believe I see one minor change: Heathrow arrivals lounge access seems to be removed for SE100k. I don't imagine that's too big a deal for anyone though.

Premium cabin they usually use to mean PE and J together. So hopefully just clarification on PE access.
Plumber and canadiancow like this.

I dont think it is a change....not sure what they mean by 'additional Economy', but 'premium cabin should apply to PY, PR and J cabins.

I believe the change from 'Classic' to 'Fixed Mileage' is the nomenclature to be used for the type of reward.

I guess time will tell.

UA runs that lounge so I wonder if they made the change on their end, or raised the fees to partner airlines. Or, AC looked at the total number of people using it and decided to make this change.

Don't use it often, but that is disappointing if SE's can in fact no longer use. Quite the fall from grace from the times when AC used to run its own arrivals lounge in London (with yummy bacon sandwiches).

Agreed, if true. Remember the days when an SE could access the T3 Arrivals MLL even if they weren't flying? Too bad AC didn't do their own Arrivals MLL for T2.

I was mildly annoyed because it was a benefit I was looking forward to accessing next year. Having said that, I didn't really know what I was going to be missing. Then you mentioned bacon sandwiches and now I'm considering throwing this chair.
