Hi, guys. I had dinner with my girlfriend who told me a most bizzare tale about her experience with Aeroplan miles flight award redemption. In September, my girlfriend and her hubby booked a last minute award flight to Chicago from YYZ, and the itinerary cost them 80,000 miles (for 2 return tickets), and $350 in taxes. They booked it last minute, so they could not get saver awards. But a family emergency caused them to cancel the trip, and the miles were returned into their accounts. Just this past week, they wanted to use their miles for 2 Y tickets to London next summer, and when they tried to book the tickets, they were told that the 80k miles that were returned to their accounts were premium plus miles, and cannot be used for saver flight awards to London. And if they want to use miles for their flights to London, they would have to cough up 120k miles each for the economy class ticket. Has anyone ever experienced this? Is this for real? I find the story bizzare, and a little ridiculous. But my girlfriend has absolutely no reason to lie about this.
