The AA Advantage Executive Platinum number with almost no waiting time has ended. Had to wait 16 minutes. Does anyone have the new good number?


According to Wiki in "Starwood Starpoints Transfer To Airline Miles Master Thread" Starwood > Aerplan transfers..."Aeroplan - Names don't need to match. - Usually takes about a day and half to 2 days to transfer."

I'd be surprised if this wasn't their intention all along...

Not basic Economy.

On Domestic flights you will pay for first bag regardless.

Aimia, the Aeroplan parent confirms that it’s in talks with Oneworld airline alliance. Oneworld’s members include British Airways, American and Cathay Pacific. It’s a direct competitor to Air Canada and it brings into question Air Canada’s takeover bid

Ugh
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

from Aeroplan

Quote
Dear XXXXX,

You may have seen or heard several things in the news recently about the future of the Aeroplan program.

I want to reassure you that we are committed to building Canada's best travel loyalty program providing you with exceptional value on flight rewards, increased flexibility and an enhanced experience. This includes the ability to redeem your miles for any seat on any airline (including Air Canada), at any time, to anywhere you want to go come July 2020.

We're proud to announce a comprehensive partnership with Porter that will allow you to earn and redeem Aeroplan Miles with them beginning in July 2020. We're also in active discussions with other major airlines and airline networks, with more exciting announcements to come. We remain committed to maintaining flight reward mileage levels that start at the same amounts as today on members' most redeemed destinations. For more details about our future plans, click here.

In the meantime, you will continue to earn and redeem with Air Canada and Star Alliance member airlines through June 2020 under our current agreement.

I realize that you will have questions about the program between now and 2020. I will continue to provide you with information as we work toward building a better Aeroplan program for you. You can find answers to more questions here.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Rabe
CEO

i placed the question to the DOT, here is their answer.

This responds to your communication regarding Aeroplan.

Aeroplan is a ticketing agent; not an airline.  Therefore, in this case, it does not fall under the Department's 24-hour reservation requirement rule.

Looks like Aeroplan is having issues seeing / booking Swiss space.
See it available on United.com, but doesnt show up on Aeroplan.
Has anyone experienced this? how long has this been going on?

I’ve had this issue only with the app on the site it showed for me.
