Aeroplan as part of AC

As best as I can determine from my contact at AC nothing will change in the short to medium term with Aeroplan as AC will be preoccupied getting with getting cost efficiencies in line with their projections. A lot of agents and other personnel coming over from AE were originally AC employees so that transition will be rather painless.

I would tend to agree with you, operationally.

 

I shall, however, be interested to see how Air Canada refines the carrot-and-stick model of redemption availability versus available routings. Aeroplan has, of late, 'featured' some remarkably-circuituous routings on offer.

I know they charge you extra for calling in to get a flight but sometimes that works better than doing it online.

Good point, well-taken!

 

I am tickled pink by the continued availability of useful 'reward' flights via IKK. The J-cabin ones tend to have much more user-friendly routings than the Y-cabin ones. Of course, there is the factor of Y-only flights to outlying stations that might account for that.

I have heard from very reliable sources at AC that the new Altitude  program will NOT feature taxes on reward seats. Everything else will remain pretty much the same but with some better features for frequent travelers.

That's very promising news. Looking forward to the full details.

 

Any sense if it will still be implemented in July,  or will they shift the start date to January?

Taxes are only a small part of the cash charge - the real question is will they have a fuel surcharge/administrative surcharge/YQ or whatever else AC chooses ot brand it.

I think it will be based on status with low or zero surcharges for SE and moving up for less or no status traveller

Sounds similar to what is in place now for SE - other than possibly a benefit to lower tiers of Altitude who currently pay full scamcharges irrespective of tier.
