    Quick search and couldn't find anything. Apologies if this has been discussed. Isn't that what we want to have - the crystal ball when next promos will be? How do you ensure you get the "best prices" by anticipating promos? Do you keep checking until you can't stand it anymore?

    I think that will depend on your travels. If your flight plans include anything that Porter flies, there have been 30% discounts on a regular basis.

    This page is usually the site were AC will post their sales (and hey, what do you know, a Porter match of 30% off!)

    I know the OP was talking about a promo on flight cost, but I'd love a bonus miles promo from east to west like they had in 2009. My AE account ballooned because of that. :)

    AP hasn't had many promo's in recent years and more often than not are route specific bonuses and not Q mile bonuses at that. I'd suggest a microscope rather than a crystal ball also, BTW. ;)

    Just saw a new AC promo 15% off anywhere AC flies (from Canada) - SCHOOL is the promo code.

    Good only until Aug 26th.
