Flight Passes for Business

Hi Everyone,

This is my first time purchasing a business flight pass for employees of my company. What makes immediate sense is that the miles flown on the pass would be added to their respective Aeroplan accounts -- what I am wondering is... if the spend becomes part of their account as well (I am paying completely for the pass) or the purchase price lands up as my MQD?

Does anyone have experience with this? Also, if my initial assumption is wrong about MQMs let me know. TIA.

Current Small Business Flight Pass

https://fp.aircanada.com/wallet/serv...R/317LC0000130Traveller Eligibility
  • Each Eligible Business is responsible for all designated travellers using their pass ("Eligible Traveller"). Eligible travellers must be employed or retained by the Eligible Business or by the Eligible Business' subsidiaries or affiliates, and whose purpose for travelling are business activities related to such entities and whose travel costs hereunder are being paid directly by the Eligible Business.
Does anyone have first hand experience with this pass?
I am wanting to know how strict AC is with the traveller eligibility.

Four members of my clan (myself included) are now needing to travel back and forth to YVR ex YLW and the Latitude 30 flight credit would be perfect.
The employer would be by CCPC of which I am an amployee.
I could technically hire my wife and kids but would prefer not to unless it is becomes vital to AC.

I know people who have done what you're looking for.

I think AC's concern is that you would buy a 30 credit pass and then sell credits to strangers at some markup. Then they wrote the terms, never imagining a family might want 30 credits for themselves.

I've looked into business passes a few times, but there was never much (if any) per-credit savings over a 1 or 2 person pass (so 4 people bought 2-3 passes instead of sharing a business pass).

I can see their concern with that. We are a family of seven with four main users of the pass. One kid headed to UBC and another one with a gig type of job down there that requires last minute travel and a parent attend some of the time.
Would hate to buy it and get denied.
