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, 2018 edition and 2019 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.

Happy New Years Eve from the edge of the world. Or at least Canada.

My New Year's surprise is that my company is rolling out a new vacation plan, which is literally what I suggested in an employee survey. Much simpler and slightly better. Today was also bonus day. I'm happy.

Oilers jump out to a 6-0 lead against visiting NYR and hold on for a 7-5 victory. Pretty or ugly, a win is a win. ^

Gah, the morons have started random fireworks 90 minutes early here. Cue yappy dog in apartment somewhere near me.

I shall not complain. I found a unicorn - TPAC direct Australia-YVR on AC has no YQ (even for non-SE). That joy will carry me into 2020.

An advance/belated Happy New Year to all!

We'll be setting off our fireworks around 8:00 tonight. Last night was rainy, and we're not exactly night-owls.

Happy arbitrary day to everyone here.

Happy New Year to all.

Thanks for sharing your insights and tips. My family has definitely benefited as a result, even though they wonder why I'm spending time on FlyerTalk. Knowledge is key and the membership here is willing and able to share theirs. Much appreciated.

My 5 year old boy just asked me how many sleeps until Christmas.

It's going to be a long year.

Raises a fair point. Being raised Ukrainian orthodox, can I start a 2020 forum lounge thread on the 14th?
