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.

Go train, bottom level so nope. Oddly the only people who seemed to give me a look were on the other side of the carriage.

In a turbulent week, it's kinda nice to hang out in the oasis of comparative calm that is the Forum Lounge. Although the food selection sucks.

I've been sitting here for 3 minutes trying to figure out how to use "affect" as a noun and "effect" as a verb in the context of this discussion, in a trolling manner, but I give up.

Effect as a Verb
@canadiancow wanted to effect change on the AC forum by.......reporting a post.

Affect as a Noun
A poster had an unusual affect, which annoyed @canadiancow

Or to use the example from https://www.grammarly.com/blog/affect-vs-effect/

"The patient had a flat affect throughout the therapy session.
Sounds like the patient was in kind of a blah mood. Not too complicated (except maybe for the patient)."

I could easily use each word separately, but I wanted to use them together.

I gave up so I could focus on Bohemian Rhapsody. And no, I'm not on AC right now.

So, effectively, you failed to effect change by affecting our affect.

Can we add "hangar" vs "hanger" to the list of typos that effect my mood?
