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.

Awww. Thanks!

We can enjoy it on that AC 220 you'll be chartering for the inevitable $70M Do in the air.

I just booked an international F ticket on an airline I've never flown. I'm excited.

Hope their F service is better than that offered by the other Korean airline.

Don't think you'll need a camping mattress for this one!

Any interest in something in LAS Jan 10-12?

Bovine and I will be there (Caesar's Palace). @expert7700 will be there for at least part of it.

Not looking for anything too formal, but I'm sure I could arrange a meal or an hour or two at a blackjack table.

What a great #sportspuck game I seem to have missed while in LIS. TSN was geo-blocking me and my Slingbox seems to be useless

Ugh (not at discussing it with you, but the crappy result). Pats Commiseration Nano-Do?

Wasn't able to watch the game, but from what I've seen, the run defence was bad, but the offence really fell through once again. It's all well and good to complain about Henry putting up 182 yards, but the Titans only had 272 yards of total offence, and TOP was barely in their favour, so it's not like they controlled the clock to a ridiculous extent.

The defence was really good this year, but not one of those all-time, lock-down defences that could win with, say, Trent Dilfer at QB. I think that the lights-out start against mediocre opponents may have misled people on that front.

You can't expect to win many games when you only score 13 points. Sad to think what would have been possible if Brown and Gordon had been around.

Normally I'd be up for it, but as mentioned at the YVR Do, I've been in Portugal the past 10 days (sitting in the crappy TP LIS lounge right now - might need to go create a thread on the TP FT about Ongoing Disrepair and Uncleanliness...), was in YVR for the Do the weekend before that, am off to Europe for 10 days on the 17th... Just can't stomach 6 consecutive weekends away.
