Oh I would love to see a Gas station like Petro Canada, a coast to coast to coast business because their current program is naaa & possibly a grocery store, but if so i cant think of a national chain that is not already affiliated.

Possibly a hook up with a hotel chain relationship

Dynamic pricing is no longer

Definitely sounds like a partnership with a gas station and a car charging service.

id prefer they just announce that the estore will actually start to work properlybut will take what I can get.

if I had to guess on the gas station side, Id probably go with Shell, given the air miles collapse.

Its fairly obvious. Aeroplan customers getting downgraded from their eUP to J will now get an electric shock informing them of such.

New Aeroplan pilot program designed for shock and awe?
Maybe a gray haired AC mechanic named Doc thought "if only we could harness that power we could get 1.21 gigawatts with every bolt".....

​​​​​​Lightning strikes might be able to power the engines, in flight entertainment, AED, and more. Passenger devices hooked to outlets will be instantly recharged well above 100% for that device's brief remaining service life". Meals will be cooked faster, even on flights without an oven onboard, and frozen fruit will be a distant memory.

​​​​​​To best utilize this green power source, we have begun installing metal harnesses to attract lightning, located where the non-functional B737 MAX in wifi antennas were installed.v Meteorologists are expensive, and since we won't need their help routing around storms, we will pass the savings on to executive shareholders.

The 737 MAX was chosen first as it is Boeing's most discussed airplane. After the first delivery nearly 5 years ago all but two MAX aircraft are still in service existence. For nearly 2 of those years, the global fleet of 737 MAX consumed nearly 0 gallons of fuel in commercial service.

Plus, due to grandfathered standards in place since the 1970s, there are fewer expensive sensors to get fried by stray lightning, and no expensive TCAS system.

If it's a gas station, Petro Canada is the only option.. my guess is a method to link your Petro Canada Rewards to Aeroplan.. kinda like the Starbucks setup.

It's going to be some useless addition to the programme.

Remember how Aeroplan trumpeted the amazing and incredible addition..of Mexican regional airline Aeromar to the programme? Aeromar went out of business eight months later. Forgive me for being cynical about amazing developments at Aeroplan.

This "electrifying" addition is going to be another useless partner that provides benefit to maybe five people.

Hmm.. I guess not. Chevron and Ultramar.. not the most popular stations at least in the West.

"Our strategic partnership with Aeroplan unites two great Canadian loyalty programs and propels Parkland's loyalty and organic growth strategies," said Parkland Canada President, Ian White.
I don't really hear a lot of buzz about Journie rewards..

I signed up for Journie to gas up at Ultramar once or twice. After initial bonuses, you need to spend something like 300L of gas to hit a reward tier. I stopped bothering at that point. Not nearly as valuable as other gas reward options. Won't know if the AP announcement changes anything until they release details.

I already fill up at Pioneer and Ultramar fairly frequently (using the 3 cents off per litre on the CIBC Aeroplan Visa) so I'll gladly take whatever Aeroplan miles they end up offering.

Journie itself is fairly meh as far as reward programs go, but can't ask for much when they also have the cheapest gas prices in the area.

An affiliation with a Gas station would be great for sure.
