Have an award flight booked for May from Washington to Rome using Aeroplan points on Brussels Air. On a fluke, I decided to check on the flight seating again yesterday and discovered the flight has been cancelled by the airline. Called Aeroplan and after telling me the time had changed and I would now have an 8 hour layover in Brussels, they ended up checking further and confirming what I had found - the flight was completely cancelled. The agent then told me he would submit a ticket and someone would get back to me to find 2 business class seats to replace this flight. In looking at award space online, no biz class seats show up for the date we need to travel. My question is - what is their obligation to me at this point? Should I grab something else from another program or should I rely on Aeroplan to find a replacement flight? As an aside, I moved AmEx points to Aeroplan to book the original tickets. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Happy new year to all.
