Amazing Aeroplan success to Melbourne - all J class
 
After months of only Air China, or mixed-class bookings, today I managed to get AC's non-stop AC YVR-MEL on the 789, then return on Singapore's A380 to SIN, 787-10 to Taiwan, and then AC's 789 back to Vancouver. This will be my first time on a 380 and a 787-10, and on Singapore Airlines.

Ooooh congratulations! I "get" how exciting it is to finally get a preferred itin after looking for months!
Curious to know - how bad were the scam charges?

Paid about $900... ugghh. But, obviously I decided it was worth it.

Congrats. Great routings. Great products.

Buy a lotto ticket! You were very fortunate to be able to get those flights.

How far out is your flight?

Not sure if I should be giving a standing ovation, or a golf clap? :p

Is the SQ segment on Aeroplan redemption? I thought that was not possible, or did you get lucky?

The whole thing is on Aeroplan redemption. So, I guess I got lucky.

Aeroplan even gave me the SQ booking reference and I went to the SQ website and chose my seats. They even sent me a message saying I could choose my meal online 4 months before the flight. The flights all show “confirmed”.

But, I’m not going to get too excited about flying in J on the 380 and 78X yet. Neither aircraft is currently operating the flights I’m on, and things can change.

I guess the good news is that SQ will have sold all their 330s to Air Canada by then.

How long have you been monitoring/searching?

If I understood you correctly, AC released some award inventory 5-6 months out, right?

thanks

There are some pro Aeroplan searchers on here that tell me that searching, for elusive SQ or LH F or other, requires daily effort at the very least, but how far in advance is YMMV. Quite often people here truly luck out after minimum effort.
