Ditto. Interestingly very few of the airports I flew to in 2019.

Seems like AC trying to pump up Q4 revenue.

No, they mean Aeroplan status.

As for the 2x bonus miles, what are the bonus miles? The regular miles are not bonus miles, right? So there's a bonus, and then that bonus is doubled? Or does this promotion give me 2x that bonus, on top of the regular bonus?

Could they, for once, write an unambiguous title?
