A few things:

- The quote on the AC flight deals with a cancelled flight, not a missed connection.
- The kid could not be an unaccompanied minor due to the availability only on direct flights.

SE worth it...

For me the biggest benefit would be the 100% bonus combined with the Priority Reward at 1:1. So, if I do YYZ-SFO (as I do), I get 8,988 miles per trip or a free round tripper every three flights for...

A couple of thoughts...

First, I appreciate that AC is looking for a revenue stream. However, in general, I think no free bags is a very bad idea on AC operated flights.

First, on every single full US based flight,...

I'll agree that certainly the airline makes its most money based on customers paying full fare J and Y fares. That said, you can't fill up a plane with those customers, so you fill the rest of the...

Huh?

So, you are going to quit being AP SE because someone stole $122 out of a bag somewhere between Tokyo and Bangkok? I think you're being petty.

Even if AC is responsible for the $122 missing, I...

Nothing wrong.

There is something wrong with this picture

The Canadian price is 129 + $18 NAV Surcharge = $147 x 2 = $294
The American price is $148 x 2 = $296.

AC rounds off prices to the nearest $ after...

I got my E two weeks ago and noticed some strange activity in my account. Keep in mind I started the year at P and was already receiving 25% bonus miles.

Then I received 5 x 1,127 "Elite flight...

I don't think so. I think you have to be AeroPlan E/SE. I don't think you could be a *G on non-AC and use the Delta Lounge. But I'll ask next time I'm there in 4 weeks.

Able to eup on line...

Last week I was on ticketed UA8504 SFO to YYZ on AC784. United.com told me to check in on AC (as expected). The booking reference was not recognized on AC.com, however, when I punched in my flight...

I was also flying in Thursday night on AC784. It was weird to land from the north on 33. I saw the sirens and the plane, but didn't know of the issue as we weren't that close to it. Later on the...

AC E from P - eUpgrades

I just crossed into E last week after getting my selection for P at the beginning of the year. To my surprise, I got to pick 25 Aeroplan E-Ups as a reward for a total of 40 (15 for P + 25 for E). I...

My wife was AC-P (*S) many years ago and United / USAirways still have her as that status even though she's maybe flown 1 flight a year. Meanwhile, I had a year where I didn't fly and UA had me at...

The biggest thing I took from a plane was a bottle of opened Champagne, SEA to YYZ, in upgraded class. The FA let us take it; it was my wife's birthday and it was going down the drain. Of course we...

Wink SSWU more like platinum...

Yep, about $500 per ticket for me. I'll probably play the SSWU trade game later this year. And the cost is usually about $95 each ($USD) on e-Bay where an SWU is about $7 each.

Given that an SSWU...

As a bottom feeder on the YYZ-YVR-SEA run, the lack of the meal while sitting in the back is bothersome. I think travelling 3 hours plus deserves a guaranteed meal. People need to eat.

SEA-YVR never had anything else but the snacks, juice, and water, in the two years I've been flying that route.

YYZ-YAM always had a cart. It's just the service they put on the route.

Most lawyers will act as notaries. All you need to do is call a few offices and one of them is in, they'll see ya. All for $20. It's a necessary service, especially near passport offices :)

I think the excuse AC gives is petty. Even you are physically able to operate the exit row at the time you book, you might not be mentally able when you fly (ie, drunk).
