Not condemn, but the reality is that flying YYT-YYZ in five segments (rather than direct) for $250 is nothing but gaming the system: it's certainly not going to make you one of AC's top customers,...

Some flight passes can be shared. Since it's about YOUR revenue, they cannot credit the AQD until you fly.

I don't see what the big deal with this anyway.

It works for me, and it already worked for me last year, for flights booked by Concur (our corporate travel system).



You cannot make changes to the ticket because the travel agency owns the...

Is AC one of those? I now see no availability for AC flights, even on the mobile companion. :(

1%er? Spending 120K+ miles a year flying Y fares makes me a 1%er?

That said, I think I have flown exactly one R/T in the last year to a destination served by WS.

5 cents, or even 13 cents per query would be OK for me, I don't do that many queries. But Timatic has a base annual fee of €499, which is a bit rich. Now, if KVS paid for that and included it in...

Based on that survey, yes. But to make my travel choices, I trust my personal experiences even more. :D

The 2014 program gives you +24 at 140K (+12 at 120K and +12 at 140K) so if you fly 140K it isn't a huge difference.
