Heh. I confess that the first time I went to the 'new' aeroplan site, I groaned at the realization that we would now be using AC IT. Which seems to spend its budget on spinning logos... :)

Sure - I was looking for YEG to LHR. I get these for points and $ respectively. I did think it should work as you said (that the points cost just rose as the buckets filled) - but I just get...

Really? I am looking now and flights with a dozen open J seats just flag as unavailable for points. And even worse some disappear when I turn on a priority reward. This is October to Europe in J.

So the new programme is working exactly as I expected it to. Rather than using SKK to open up additional seats as SE we're now all in the same pool, meaning I can get a small number of 50% seats on...

The lack of policing in lounges (specifically YYZ) is the only thing I have complained about in the surveys that I (used) to get post J. It is maddening. Dragons should be doing periodic patrols...

I am 6'5". Bulkhead always. Reclining (and taking the screen with it) is far worse than not being able to stretch out like one is on a beach :)

On a purely selfish basis I am in the same boat. If you are mostly in long haul J then you can easily just squeak in for SE in Dec having hit $20K sometime in Jun, while someone can spend 10K on...

YYZ dom is absolutely the worst for this kind of behavior. Not helped clearly by the fact that none of the airport actually seems like it was designed to have people and queues and the like. I...

Both ways on a recent TATL flight the seat was deflated when I sat down. I or FA reset both times and it was fine for the rest of the flight, but I wonder how many people simply suffer through...

On the off-chance anyone from AC frequents the thread, I'll petition again for SEs on paid tickets to be allowed a guest travelling on points in J. It's a little silly to talk about overcrowding...

I had the chicken YVR->LHR last week and it was truly terrible. Dry chicken. Rubbery, fatty skin. And almost entirely unseasoned. I think they called it Supreme. Perhaps they were being ironic?...

IIRC 9A/K on the 777 (front of the rear J cabin) doesn't have an 'end' to the pod past the footrest part (it's just open to the space between the pod and bulkhead), so could give you more room. ...

To clarify, once you exit Security, you turn back on yourself to go up to the lounge. That is, the lounge sits (somewhat) above Security. It is signed, but only if you look in the right direction...

I confess I also have been finding the new tables tricky to lock into a given position recently. Never had issues in the past. Potentially something in the mechanism wearing out. Already!
