FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: Adam Smith
The original forum lounge 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 if its about AC/Aeroplan, it doesnt belong in this thread. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may should be posted to the relevant forum, as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge, that doesn't mean that the FT rules don't apply here (they definitely do), please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities, and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

For those interested, previous versions are here: original 2004 - 2014 thread, 2015, 2016 , 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

You chose not to come for drinks before the extension date, and we weren't going to pull a full-sized DO together on four days' notice.

I would feel sad about being in CHI that weekend. The 16th is the only Saturday in March that I could do.

I mowed the grass today, in the lake effect snowbelt of the US.

Ski resorts here have a few patches of machine made melted slop.

​​​​The Vegas ski resort, Lee Canyon on Mt Charleston has a 135" base. With 51" inches of new snow within the last 72h.

Damn, I didn't even know there was a ski resort nearby. (I just knew there was mountainous-ish terrain nearby)
I know it's not Whistler-Blackomb, but I like trying different hills/resorts.

If you decide to go ahead with it I will be home that weekend, wedged between Barcelona and Australia.

​​​​Like ​RangerNS I will technically be out of the country that day as well, but will be returning to YYZ around 7pm. I could hop a flight to YOW and be downtown by 10:00pm if the party was still going (assume it would be if canadiancow decided to show)..

From the NHL video on the Rielly incident. "This is not a hockey play. This is an intentional, forceful stick to an opponent's head using the stick as a weapon to exact retribution on an opponent well after a goal has been scored".

I guess 5 games is better than nothing, but I'm really disappointed that after all these years of cracking down on goons and concerns for player safety and concussions, an act of such pure thuggery gets so little punishment.
