Aeroplan Blocking LOT Polish Airlines… Again

Look, Aeroplan, I love you but I am really starting to see why Air Canada is leaving you in 2020. Your constant airline blocking, more rude call centre agents, and refusing to waive phone booking fees (especially when your website doesn’t work) is insane and not how a frequent flyer programme should operate… so AC is tired of you… loyal AC flyers are also tired… Read More

Aeroplan Award Ticket Routing Rules

My second favourite frequent flyer programme after Miles & More is Aeroplan – Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme (at least for the next 2 years). Aeroplan is an instant transfer partner of America Express Membership Rewards points and offers generous routing rules on award tickets while not charging fuel surcharges on a number of incredible Star Alliance airlines. The “trick” to booking Aeroplan awards with… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines Bookable with Aeroplan Again

Aeroplan, Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme, is one of my favourites when it comes to Star Alliance award redemptions. Aeroplan is incredibly generous when it comes to routing rules – you can have two stopovers in addition to a destination on round-trip award tickets, and with generous maximum permitted mileage, you can even create a mini-RTW with a simple round-trip booking. Furthermore, Aeroplan is an… Read More

Aeroplan’s Newest “Glitch”: LOT Polish Airlines Not Bookable

Here we go again… honestly, Aeroplan knows they will be gone soon so why are they becoming worse and worse as they die? I don’t get it. Aeroplan used to be one of my favourite frequent flyer programmes, but now, I wouldn’t consider them in the top rankings. Ever since the announcement of the Air Canada and Aeroplan breakup, Aeroplan has been trying to tell… Read More

Air Canada’s New Business Class Lounge Is Incredible

When it comes to North American carriers, Air Canada is probably the most “premium” airline from all of the choices (American, Delta, United, etc). While I’ve redeemed over a million Aeroplan miles, I’ve yet to fly Air Canada – that’s going to change soon. My good friend and fellow blogger Avery from Don’t Call the Airline! was recently invited to preview Air Canada’s new intercontinental Business… Read More

New Aeroplan Agents are Terrible

My favourite use of American Express Membership Rewards points is by transferring them to Air Canada Aeroplan and redeeming for Lufthansa First Class. While Aeroplan does impose fuel surcharges for travel on Lufthansa, they’re not that bad when originating in some European countries. I generally love Aeroplan because they have generous routing rules, a great award chart, and don’t impose fuel surcharges on a number… Read More

Avianca Bookable with Aeroplan… Sort Of

One of my favourite frequent flyer programmes is Air Canada’s spun off Aeroplan. The programme is fantastic because it allows for two stopovers or one stopover and an open jaw on round trip award tickets.. you can essentially create a mini-RTW with Aeroplan. The other benefits of Aeroplan include instant transfers from American Express Membership Rewards points and also the fact that Aeroplan doesn’t impose… Read More

Is Aeroplan Blocking Lufthansa First Class?

Despite not having flown Air Canada at all so far, I’ve redeemed over three million miles using their frequent flyer programme, Aeroplan. In general, I do like Aeroplan a lot – for the most part they have decent redemption rates, very competent agents, instant transfers from AMEX Membership Rewards, and Aeroplan doesn’t impose fuel surcharges on a number of airlines. However, recently, Aeroplan has been… Read More

Why I Love Aeroplan

Perhaps my favourite frequent flyer programme, besides Miles & More, has to be Air Canada Aeroplan. While I love Miles & More with all of my heart, the programme has quite high redemption rates for premium cabin travel in addition to imposing fuel surcharges on nearly every single airline. Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme is my second favourite in that the programme has a number… Read More
