When did you earn the 50k miles?

ditto just logged in and saw my P25K accomplished through the miles sale promo. Will I by any chance be receiving luggage tags of my newly acquired status?

You should receive a package, but I don't think P25K gets tags.

No tags for P25k.

Though last year I saw a guy who punched a hole in his P25k Altitude card and was using that has his carry-on bag tag.

Just received my 75K! I am able to select my privilege. However, the Altitude Wifi option is not available. Does anyone know why?

I expect myself to reach 45k AQM this year, I have chosen lower requirement as one of my privilege at the beginning of the year. Since I have to choose them all over again, I assume that I will have to reach 50k AQM to gift someone 50K, even if I choose the lower requirement again(since it is treated as early recognition). Is my assumption correct?

I'm also not seeing wifi as an option. I wonder why.

Your assumption is based on a situation they probably never considered, so I have no idea.

Mine came in as well although all the dials are till at 0. How do you see how many Eupgrades you have? Also If I am 25K why does it still say I need 35K for my next status bump ?

Have you earned any AQM, AQS, or AQD this year?

On January 1, I will be S100K. But I still need to earn 35K AQM next year if I want to be E35K the following year.

If you want to be E35K, you need 35k AQM (or 35 AQS) and $4000 AQD.

Speculating, but perhaps their deal with Gogo is that they have to make an upfront payment for anyone who selects that pass as an option, so by disabling selection of it, they're stemming cash outflow to Gogo?

The offer was to give out P25K status, not any AQM/AQS/AQD.

Log in to the AC website and check the eUpgrade dashboard: https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/...rade-dashboard

Also If I am 25K why does it still say I need 35K for my next status bump ?
Because you were gifted P25K status, not 25K AQM. If you want 35K status, you need:
  • 35K AQM OR 35 AQS
  • $4,000 AQD

EDIT: the cow seems to often post things while I'm typing these days...

Interesting. I do still see 12 months WIFI listed on Altitude Privilege page for 75k & 100k (2nd from the very bottom)
