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.

Well it's clear I don't understand RCHHMP at all. Oh well - I've been proving all my life that the human mind has limits on knowledge retention.

On another note, I did an all-nighter and learned the entire Nutcracker Suite (Tchaikovsky's piano reduction, not the Strelezki versions).

It's just heresy to manipulate a Far Side comic. Sure, it was funny. But it's still wrong.

It was pretty clever, but...

2 things:

1. How does this thread fall to the 4th page!?
2. How would you react if you were on a train/subway/bus/plane and someone was watching documentaries about terrorism plots?

1. I'm not sure what you're asking
2. Probably let them be

One of my Facebook friends is a huge MSer/churner. He's a grad student in SF booking two nights at a Hyatt in SF just for the free breakfast (and probably qualifying nights/points). I wish he and I got along; I kind of miss that stuff

Sounds a lot like me! Grad student (in the UK now) who booked a 3 night stay at the Westin Castle Harbour for $107 CAD/night just to rack up the night credits, bonus miles and free breakfast as a (now former) SPMarriott Platinum...oh and to attend a D0!

I have a 12 day sample size that suggests it's going to be underwhelming. At best.

For number 2, it suggests that they donít have their own plot yet.
