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.

Yeah, the busyness was mostly not the Jays given that game didn't even end until whenever it was. But there were a lot of people anyway and it didn't lower the volume on the train much when they lost lol.

Hope it goes/went well. You should get some sort of frequent flyer badge after 7 visits

I tuned out of the canes caps Gm7 in P2 thinking caps were probably going to win.
Of course canes comeback to win in 2OT. Nuts. These playoffs are more shocktastic than ones in recent memory.

Indeed they are. I wasn't a big fan of the format change, but you can't deny that the Blue Jackets were better all around than the Lightening. A Canadian team (or two) in the second round would be nice, but at least the leafs were send packing.

I'm cheering for the Senators diaspora at this point

There's a restaurant around the corner from me. The item I want is $12.99 to order for pickup. It's $10.49 through Amazon, for delivery. The result is that if I'm ordering for 2+ people, it's several dollars cheaper for delivery than to walk and pick it up, even after the delivery fee and tip. For just me, it's about even. Sigh.

Man the Raps game 1 yesterday was awesome even with the bench being dead. Leonard and Siakam combined for 74 points and Phila were downcast by the end - no answer to the Claw.

Jays clawed there way up to .500 ball today. Good stuff especially for a team that is mostly 20-something kids.

They will make it up in volume. Did they have a superbowl ad?

Their bats are certainly getting hotter, especially compared to their no hit ball for 75% of their first couple of series!

Was courtside for Saturday's Raptors game after watching the Jays win 7-1 from the TD box or whatever club thing... fell asleep half way through... waste of a seat on me I think. How does one gain an interest for sports like these?
