FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: tcook052
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 , 2017 edition and 2018 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. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status 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, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

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.

My contraceptive method of choice is my personality. As level of redundancy, I've had surgery.

It's a shame one can only like a post once. Spectacular.

Of course, buds confidently beat the best team and the next day can barely keep up with a mediocre team.
Flip a coin!

I haven't done the in-depth tour of the U-boat, but that is a great museum. Way better than the Art Institute of Chicago, which I found to be terribly disappointing.

Wow, that's a lot of kids... How's the family taking your recent increase in travel? Zero to SE sounds like a huge change in lifestyle.

There was always some travel but of course not like this. Not even close.

I am just thankful they have the best mama in the world.

Glad to hear it's working out. I have one wife and 0.0 children, yet I barely manage to keep things organized, what with all my travel!

What city?

Could be worse...check out NY's weather:




Going from a balmy 11 degrees down to a chilly -12 on the same day. Talk about a slap in the face!
