Still no update for me. And when I go to the Play Store web it shows the update date as 16-Jan-2020 but the version as 5.0.3 still. Definitely some strangeness going on.

I don't know about the CRJ but a pilot in the know that I talked to recently told me that the problem with the DH3s right now is their age and, as a result, their reliability. The end result is that...

I know that the EYW T&C say that the leaderboard will be "refreshed weekly" but once things got rolling it was basically daily up until November 24th (for flights on the 19th). And now I'm trying to...

I have found a slight increase in the chance of getting the dreaded "SSSS" remark on your BP when booking OWs on FP. But both times it was a USA booking and could be attributed to bad luck with...

Another factor to consider is your FF status -- unless the policy has changed, buying a J ticket on United does necessarily allow access to the United Clubs.

That said, I've flown the Rouge 763s...

Nevermind "that" ominous feeling about the number of flights yet to do, EC just reaffirmed the snowfall and weather warnings for much of Alberta. So, here's hoping for a smooth weekend of flying...

Okay, so we've concluded that it's an Android thing. Or, at least, it's an Android thing for the AC app for me and canadiancow.

I'm going to get a T-shirt made up that says "I was ahead of canadiancow in the 2019 EYW Leaderboard for 11 days!". Or whatever it ends up being -- it'll be my claim to fame. :p

I will hit the threshold with a trip on 29-Oct, which probably won't post to Aeroplan until 01-Nov. I reached out to Altitude on Twitter and got a pretty canned response, similar to the fine print on...

Yeah, I just happened to have the leaderboard in a tab (I'm a tab hoarder) from yesterday and NEARQUE74, NEILMAN01, REBECCAT and RHINOGAL all disappeared from their spots in the top 20.
