I'm surprised with the Max issues.
Maybe there will be badges for flying on ACMI routes.

earnyourwings.aircanada.com still shows last years data

This years Unicorn badge should be 737MAX.

Flying on a MAX will be just as UNlikely as landing at EYW (key west) airport.

Have all the 7M8 schedule changes been posted until EOY?

Also, does anyone have a list of every new destination added to the network (mainline, Express, or rouge) since the last EYW?

Edit: Nevermind, don't need that info.

I think [MENTION=599574]canadiancow[/MENTION] and [MENTION=658949]DrunkCargo[/MENTION] are about to take a serious hit to the bank accounts and calendars.

Have not gone through one of these before having just started frequent travel last May. I look forward to watching with interest.

I mean I refuse to commit before running the numbers, but every year they make changes, and every year it costs me the same, and earns me the same.

So if it's the same as last year, I'm in.

I suspect 2018 was an outlier in terms of advance warning (maybe because it was so soon after the previous one, and they wanted to keep interest up). Before that I think we got between one week and one month's notice.

I know, I'm speculating, but isn't that the point at this stage? It's like being a Raptors fan in August...

Ooh, nice. I'm gong to take a few flights and play a bit. Not in the big leagues, but happy to earn a few bonus miles.

It is so. But now I'm trying to figure out when your retirement is. Congrats, btw.
