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.

I get that.

I had:
Thanksgiving
Wedding
EYW
EYW
EYW
EYW
HKG Outbound
HKG Return

8 weekends away from home. I fully sympathize.

I think I'll head back to LAS in the summer. Or sooner if I don't lose all my money. So we can plan something else.

Do what I do. Just eat the tarts / drink the wine and avoid sitting down. But at least there's no snow. Or unfortunate (American) football games to watch.

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.
I will be there, departing on the 12th. LMK what you guys plan. However my better half is joining me and may not take kindly to me hanging out with you nice folks instead of celebrating our milestone

The chocolate-glazed ones look like Cocoa Puffs. But hey, if one needs another form of sugar for breakfast, well, they come in 2 flavours.

I wonder how different this would be to plunking a box of timbits into a bowl of milk (well, minus the box itself).

The box would be crunchier and bonus, you'd get your daily fibre requirements

So far. Oil beat Bruins on Sat. and playing Buds hard so far so maybe they've turned a corner and remembered how to hockey.

What another stellar individual goal by McDavid to make it 6-3! Yikes, what a move he made on Rielly going around him like a pylon.

Also, SpaceX landed another launch vehicle.

Astonishing that they can make things like that look routine.
