Some things seem too good to be true.  RT in J on partner.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

10 new award charts, PDF download from AC here.

No fuel surcharges.

$39 (Canadian) fee for booking on any partner airline.

Families can pool points (family not defined). Sure to be abused and changed IMHO but great for the time being!

Points+cash bookings possible.

LAX-TLV RT in J on Partner for 100k.
LAX-AUH RT (maybe even MLE) in first on partner for 130k?

Something looks too good to be true.
Isn't the charts per OW?

You are correct. I stand corrected. I didn't read the print below.

Still very good value for partners.

You can enter your original and destination in this tool to get the award cost if you don't want to search through 10 award charts.

I see some potential HC values assuming routing is allowed.

Isn't based on distance?
Only way that'll work is if you somehow manged to fly between zones with a HC [final destination zone being cheaper] and not backtrack.

How is backtracking measured. Is it strictly by longitude? Or is the a little bit of leeway?

Did I miss anything?
"Air Canada won’t charge anything for lap children within the US and Canada. Outside of the US and Canada an infant ticket can be purchased for just C$25 (currently US$18)!"
Is this on partner awards?
