SSWUs - 2005 and Xmas Day flight question

Hi all

I expect I'll be taking the long ACA857 trip across LHR/YYZ on Christmas Day (lucky me) - this will push me over 45k status miles.

Can I expect 2006 SSWUs with it being so close to new year or will I still receive 2005 SSWUs (which by the time I receive them will have about 3 weeks left of use by the sounds!)?

Also, any ideas if there's festive fare on Dec 25th or just bog standard norm in C?

Thanks

I think you will get 2006 SSWU in the mail in Jan.

I have often travelled on Dec 25, and found it to be very light in terms
of load factors. Usually the best day of the year to book a cheap
fare and count on getting an UG

I asked Aeroplan the exact question a few days ago, as asked in the opening post. Here is the answer:

Based on past years Aeroplan did send the following years upgrade certificate in relation to the January statement however we are still waiting for confirmation with respect to the current threshold program.
