I'd like to go to one of these, one of these days.

I'm not sure which article you read, but this sounds like the pax were at fault and got kicked off the flight, by police.

Then AC screwed up and basically banned them without letting them know,...

There is a thread around here if you search, that canadiancow started, about getting your Y legs upgraded to J on AE J redemptions.

I actually flew that exact route once a couple of years ago, going from customer to customer, but I spent the night before in the YEG in-airport hotel so the early departure was less of a shock. The...

The YYZ and YUL transborder lounges are both comparable in that they are mediocre at best.

YYZ is a bit better going DOM-US because I find the Global Entry process better in YYZ - the YYZ US...

Agreed. If it was me I'd just leave it because non Signature Service J and Premium Rouge are mostly the same. But if you call in they should reroute you.

Seriously. Why on earth would you spend $5000 plus a lot of your time and other expenses taking a bunch of crappy flights? The *G benefits don't come anywhere close to this kind of value, and if they...

I don't know the first thing about running an airline, they'd probably be back in bankruptcy again if I was king for a day ;) And the products I am responsible for generate an order of magnitude less...

Nice strawman. You'll notice every single post I've made in this thread points out that, from an entirely financial perspective, the decisions Air Canada take make sense.

You're going to land, clear customs/immigration in to the EU and then have to take a very short train over the the A gates.

They're making inroads because they are dumping super cheap fares on US travelers to attract them. Which one can do when the 777 they are connecting on to has 450 seats, isn't cleaned properly and is...

DUB is OSS. You can clear customs/immigration upstairs in YYZ and then take escalator down to the bus to the D gates.
