FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: Adam Smith
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, 2019 edition, and 2020 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.

At least I didn't have to use a hammer.
At least you didn't use a (full) bottle as a hammer.

I just had a Boom Chicken Whopper with cheese.

There were (likely better) free options in the lounge 10 feet from the BK, but there was no way I was passing that opportunity up.

It was a little spicy for me, but that's like saying the water was a little wet for me. I cannot handle spice.

Of course that made me sniffle and blow my nose, which is exactly what I love doing in airports these days.

Spice is the variety of life (or something like that). But agree about feeling self-conscious about sniffling.

If only certain MLL FaceTime users felt the same way ...

But yeah I feel like sneezing and coughing in public are like crimes these days, and I tend to sneeze a lot when visiting certain places in spring/summer.

I am a heavy smoker. Most of you read that and immediately felt judgment bubble up in you and thought about what a problem that is for my health. What you didnt think about is my plight: we smokers cough. A lot. Ive been a pariah for two years.

How about a white friend and his wife who just want to go see India?

Or a partially Indian white friend who loves India, whose wife might be convinced to join - as long as she never had to hear about McDonald's?

Exclamation

As 2021 has now ended (at least in some parts of the world), please move on to the 2022 thread.

Happy New Year!
