FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: tcook052
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, 2020 edition and 2021 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.

I think there were attempts but nothing crystalized. It would have been one heck of a DO in BKK if almost all of the members from the forum there were present

Even with as popular as that fare was, I doubt that hundreds of people would have been able to coordinate that kind of a Do.

The BKK thread got locked. Due to schedule changes, for many folks a DO could still be organized..... Unsure if it is worth moving some of these recent posts in a new thread for potential DO?

Currently enjoying a few beverages at the Fairmont YVR, and thinking the world is overdue for another DO around this fireplace.

I could do Feb 3 or 4 if it suited people.

Feasible; on my calendar as tentative.

I also know a certain bovine who only has a couple months left to use 4 FP credits.

If there's momentum for a Do, someone should start a Do thread.

Count me as a maybe. I still have 8 Sun pass credits to burn up before end of April, so might be more inclined to head for warmer climes around then.

He's also taking the news of said resort's awesomeness especially hard as his YVR-YOW has had to go-around and divert to Pearson due to extreme winter conditions.

Just close your eyes and imagine you're in Thailand?

That's not working, but at least I can have a giggle at my new favourite flight itinerary of 2022:
