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.

So my 2nd daughter lost her phone 1.5 weeks ago at an event in Moncton. After leaving contact information everywhere she might have lost it we figured that it was gone forever. But yesterday I got a call from the Moncton Coliseum that they had found her phone. I excitedly hopped in the car as soon as possible and drove 100 km to pick it up. Imagine my disappointment when I found that it had been bent so badly that the display is shot (mostly black with rainbow stripes -- though the glass is intact), the power button barely works and the battery is clearly disconnected inside since it only turns on when plugged in.

At least we retrieved her bank card (already cancelled), driver's licence (replacement in the mail) and health card (already replaced). I'm glad her ID isn't floating around out there ready for ID theft.

yyznomad and @24left are heading east
gorging on fake lounge food, getting fleeced
where we end up, only we know
and we’re sitting in the back, just for the show

No RCHHMPs are invited
And no FOTSGs have been sighted
Scotch and Kit Kats to greet us when we land?
Surely this is something we had not planned!

OINK OINK

Yeah, it seems they’re making up for their game 5 accuracy.

Or inaccuracy. They are making some outside shots so far but want to see them pound the paint and attack the rack more. Great game, so far.

True. But I’m trying to give off positive vibes here!
