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.

Surprised this thread took so long. I feel like the only other year it was created in North America was 2021.

I am in YVR (not the city, the airport) right now and 2024 is still 3.5 hours away.

The airport feels kinda "tranquil" right now as there aren't that many flights today.

Belated Happy New Year from (unbelievably warm) YAZ. About as far away as you could get from codfather and still be in Canada.

Sadly, no AC or airline partners here.

Happy New Year from Japan, where we had a 7.5 earthquake to start the year.

Can we start a new thread "Where will codfather be flying today?" or "I flew with codfather and survived"

The latter seems like it belongs on a T-shirt

I was assuming that the "Somewhat scary one near Winnipeg" - The AC Master Incidents Thread was going to be the logical place for all such reports
