    It's that time of year, wherein we realise that we are all now half-way to the end of the annual (re)qualification race. So, what happens in 2019?

    And first, a wry observation. In Canadian domestic short-haul flying, E75K is almost as handy as S100K. Most of the rural outstations board Zones 1 and 2 together. Some board `Zone Mevlannen` first, by customary invitation to the old lady who sits in the bulkhead row (I shan`t name those stations, lest their boarding agents get themselves in trouble over that kindness).

    Thus, after eons and years of SE. 75 wasn`t quite so hard a pill to swallow. This year, already, am at 74 segs and 3 more to come tomorrow; 14+ thousand on the AQD and quite likely at 100 segs / 20 thou by the end of September. In other words, 100K for next year.

    My guess is that SE will become 150/150K/30 thou next year, simply because AC have had high utilisation of capacity, especially to the outstations. I'll handily have my E100K, which (if all goes in a kindly manner) just might secure concierge service for domestic J itineraries.

    I further guess that P25K will become P35K; E50K will become E60K, and 75K tier will vanish (because it basically functions now as a boobie-prize for frequent domestic travellers).

    Would be interested in people's speculations as to what next year might bring.

    Be well,

    Elane

    I don't see any major changes until 2020 when AC takes over the FF program from AE

    Oh, Londoncalling, I wish that I might share your optimism. However, I am striving steadfastly to bear in mind that Altitude and Aeroplan are two different things altogether, and that the majority of the perquisites I value are derived solely from the Altitude programme.
