Is there any way to do a search if you don't care about the destination?

"I'm bored this weekend, I want to fly somewhere in J or F, where can I go?"

Yeah ... that tends to cost around $100 and be serviced by one of the booking services

If they're just going to plug in routes and search for F inventory, I can do that myself

maybe just use Google Flights or G.F. Explorer, or even Skyscanner
Filter by *A
Pick the most $$$$ destinations and then check award spaces from there

Otherwise, there's no easy way besides brute force?
Get a list of all airport codes
Attack AP website or some search engine to search YYZ-(XXX) one by one
multiply that by # of Days
= DoS attack on Aeroplan

Yeah... we'll see.

I'm hammered AC's servers in the past, but I feel like they're a little more resilient than Aeroplan. And my balance is too high to risk them closing my account

Something is not working...

Trying to sign up, system not recognizing brand new password, and is not emailing instructions either. Does this take a day to cycle around?

I get searches from Dec 1 to Dec 9. However, nothing after that. I also got the same results from ExpertFlyer.com and also via ANA search.

EDIT: Apologies, I misread your origin/dest. I searched HKG-YYZ.

Seats are released at odd periods; for many, it seems to be 330-335 days. I've been hunting for seats next Christmas, and they've been appearing day by day from Nov 28 onwards (I started about a week ago). Two days ago I was able to see Dec 7; yesterday, Dec 8; looks like today is Dec 9.

Is the site currently under construction? The site doesn't seem to give results when I use the aeroplan search engine on the site.
