    Will this be considered an enhancement?

    I am amazed that they actually did the right thing and exempted status members from the decrease right from the beginning. My will to write letters of complaint is decreasing as the cuts continue.

    :mad: lets see EWR-YYZ for 346 Aeroplan points, or LGA-YYZ for 355 Aeroplan points?!? Hopefully United still gives 500mile credit.

    Course, I could always use the Flying Racoon Valet, err Porter.

    They did that because when the US programs introduced similar changes a couple of years ago, they included everyone and faced a revolt from their elites. Very quickly the 500 minimum was reinstated (retroactively) for elites. AC has at least learned something.

    Interesting that the change is being made mid-year given that the US carriers made this some time ago, so AC could have done it as a Jan 1 change. Is this a deliberate tactic so as not to mix with other program "enhancements"?

    Well, it is quite nice of them not to impact even Prestige with this change.

    Or go the European way of giving a whopping 125 miles per leg :)

    Basically, it only affects "Kettle" class.

    Yup, one of those 'kettle' 2MM_Guy warned you about. :eek:

    Since I do a lot more US-only flying, my U-eh 1K offers more, so I had to give up my Elite-ism. :D (also, I went from 80% AC flying to 80% UA flying due to rules that govern the carriers I can use! :mad:)

    To further dilute the pool...many of those infrequent flyers will have booked Tango.
