This thread originally contained any and all information relating to flying with AC in the times of COVID. As travel has picked up, much of the discussion has been moved to dedicated threads to make topics easier to follow. Threads that may be of particular interest to those travelling during COVID:

Meal threads:
Schedule changes/refunds - temporary COVID-related policies:
The above threads are in the process of winding down as AC moves away from temporary COVID-related policies. Most questions on schedule changes/refunds should be directed to the thread on AC's new permanent schedule change policies

Other AC-related threads:

Pre-travel e-mails:

Information on immigration rules and procedures, and other government requirements, from the Canada forum:
Airport-related threads containing information that may be relevant to AC passengers, but that are not specific to AC (there are many others in the Canada forum; these are a few that have come up frequently):
(Other threads with immigration/government-related questions not specific to AC can be found on the Canada forum, and experiences and questions on those topics should be posted there)

I know of two domestic (normal + cafe), two international (normal + signature), and two transborder (normal + shed). Am I missing any?
I have heard that AC VIPs incl company CEOs, ministers, people needing securitySea and such have a VIP lounge area. Maybe part of an existing lounge but a exclusive secured area.

YVR 11:30 this morning.
AC priority check in line longer than the B & C pier security check points combined.
Admittedly not many going through security.
Looked close to a 30 minute line for priority check in. Line stretched past the money change booth.

D pier security was longer than B, C & AC priority lines combined.

I wrote to GTAA about metering and they said to contact the airline as they are responsible for metering. So I did write to AC, specifically about holding Nexus passengers for metering when we do not impact the regular immigration/customs line. See below for AC response.
Mods : I know this is Nexus related but specifically trying to get AC to change their policy on metering with Nexus as that's who I fly.I have taken the liberty of forwarding your comments to our Airport Operations Department for their information and internal review on your suggestion for Nexus passengers having the ability to deplane upon arrival before the other passengers.
Thank you for taking the time to contact our office. We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back on board again soon.

Anyone recently flown YVR - LHR and able to comment on the experience w/ AC in combination with arriving in LHR?
Delays? Chaos on landing? Lost bags @ LHR?
Departures look *mostly* on time checking Flightradar.

Flying Monday and a bit apprehensive about whether to check a bag or not.
Generally never do but have some items which would be helpful for my trip that I can't carry on.
