Gineus idea

I was looking at the new air canada unlimited flight pass and I was struck with a brilliant idea!! Cheap and quick way to get whatever MM status you want

All you have to do is buy the 3 months package and you can shuttle back and forth from YVR to YUL every day for the duration of your pass. You can fly YVR-> YUL 0850 - 1630 then YUL -> YVR 18:30 - 21:10
Each RT flight should get you about 4500 AQMs so a full 90 days of hard work you would have 405,000 AQMs at a cost of only 8,475 (plus the cost of lodging at the fairmont in terminal hotel)

After only 8 months of hard work you would have MM status!

Unfortunately for Flight Passes, AQM are accredited on a per month basis and not a per flight basis based on the booking class. (Standard = 5k, Flex = 10k, Latitude = 15k)

Is MM based on physical miles flown or AQM?

There was a time (before AC even had the MM program) where you could do just what the OP is proposing... a formerly active poster here did:

This whole idea fell apart with the title of the thread.
