    Interesting story, but there seems to be more to it... I mean if Bob Rae was actually allowed in, Super Elite or not, unless he was sitting in the toilet the whole ride (JetBlue style) or on the jump seat, it makes no sense that they wouldn't have offered the seat, regardless of status.

    Even then though... there are worse things than a 2 hour delay. :)

    Concierge, priority standby. Normal SE protocol under the circumstances. The likelihood was that Y was indeed full but there was a seat in J. Our friend may have been on a Tango ticket or being non-elite, not asked for an upgrade if Y was full. Mr. Rae -- leader of the Opposition and my MP -- quite correctly received whatever open seat was there and if it was in J, then likely put up the appropriate number of upgrade credits to get the J seat. Or the Concierge comp'd it to him. Most of us here would expect no less. (Nor do I give a damn if his tickets were paid by the taxpayer because that's part of his job.)

    Super Elite has to be one of the more obnoxious names for a loyalty tier. I understand things like 1K don't make sense, and Silver/Gold/Plat inevitably get inflated to Gold/Plat/Diamond. But still, Super Elite? Some day people will be slapping down cards and saying, "I'm a Friggin' Awesome Elite card-holder, get me on that plane!"

    It was a funny read. Thanks!

    One guy we know can run to the gate in the States and yell, "I'm Titanium Global Services."

    Well you know what? I'm the one that's going to be getting that seat because I'm The Shiznit because I've flown an a$$load of miles.

    Indeed, but you're no match for Pilot Inspektor Megatron Sausalito status.

    I don't know why I had visions of a Benny Hill skit while reading that article. Loved it!

    The former socialist may be your MP but he is definately not leader of the opposition as that title belongs to Mr. Layton. Mr. Rae is merely the interim leader of the federal Liberal party.
     
  15. Well........I'm a million miler soon to be 2 million miler lifetime super elite:p

    I stand corrected. Still breathing the fumes off Parnel's boasts about the Liberal party's greatness and it's hard to believe the NDP is the Official Opposition...but then I suppose it was hard to believe the NDP once ruled Ontario!

    Lifetime SE isn't until 3MM.

  19. Have known that since long before you even knew there was a MM program but will be SE until I reach 3MM unless I decide I don't want to do the travel anymore. As of next week I will be SE until at least Feb 2013 and 2012 travel is well planned to reach SE until Feb 2014.

    :rolleyes: Yawn. I'm very impressed, Terry (er...your highness...er...SuperElite-ness). :rolleyes:

    You said that you're soon to be a 2MM lifetime SE. Since this is an online forum and I cannot read your mind, it seemed like you were saying that you'll be getting lifetime SE at 2MM. So I was just letting you know that it's not until 3MM. No way for me to know that you clearly knew that. Though, you do claim to know everything about everything when it comes to AC, so...my bad. :p

  22. 1. first of all most posts here were tongue ion cheek...humour obviusly doesn't touch those who fly YYC/YYZ most of the time in the back rows.;)
    2. Never said I know everything about AC but I do know things and have made friends with people at all levels in the organization. :rolleyes:

    always always....take pictures of AC staff that do not provide proper service.
     
  24. If I was an AC staff member and you tried to take my picture without my approval you would be eating the camera. Its absolutely arrogant to believe you have that kind of control over an employee of a service provider.

    sorry, no person has any expectation of privacy in a public place. if said AC employee came close to me and i thought that a battery was possible, they would be sued for assault. if they actually touched me, add battery to the tort claim and add AC as a co-defendant.

    arrogant. funny that you would use such a word.
