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.

Nope as FT uses the Gregorian calendar.

Buds en fuego

(that was sportspuck, for those who Watch Once With Grandma each year)

(regarding sportspuck, this is not to be confused with any characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream)

Well, I wasn't expecting Kovalchuk on the habs... but hey... why not. Cheap for them... nothing much to lose, per se.

I thought about this very carefully one day and decided my chance of winning with a ticket were only slightly higher than my chance of winning without a ticket.

So I buy Scotch instead. Immediate value and a better return over time.

But if anyone here wins, I will fully admit the error of my ways if they buy me a drink.

I believe I owe you one anyway so if I do win would buy you more than one.
