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."

Executive Traveller: Air Canada to detail rebooted Aeroplan scheme on July 28

The three-hour presentation will provide attendees with a deep dive into what the invitation refers to as "Air Canada’s transformed loyalty program" – although those details will be shared under embargo until a yet-to-be-advised date.

"Please note that due to the confidential nature of this event, all participants must agree to an embargo and sign a nondisclosure agreement to attend," the invitation reads.

An improved approach to miles expiration

More time to keep your account active

Effective July 20, 2020 we are waiving the current expiry provisions. You will now have 18 months to keep your account active – six months longer than before.

All you have to do to stay active is earn or redeem a single mile. While travel is core to Aeroplan, don't forget that there are many ways to keep your account active, such as:

Shopping online with one of our retail partners
Redeeming for gift cards and merchandise
Donating miles to a participating charity
Buying miles to get to your next reward


Learn more about our 18-month inactivity policy and all the ways to keep your account active.

More flexible options to reinstate your Aeroplan Miles

If your miles do expire, don't worry. Within six months of your account becoming inactive, if you fly on an eligible Air Canada ticket or get any Aeroplan credit card, we'll reactivate all of your recently expired miles.

We also understand that you may have been forced to adjust your travel plans due to COVID-19, so we're taking additional action. If you purchased a trip with Air Canada prior to July 20, 2020, with travel commencing anytime since January 2020 and had to cancel your travel plans, we'll be happy to reinstate all of your Aeroplan Miles which have expired since the beginning of this year. You'll just need to have your Air Canada booking reference on hand.

If I am reading this right, one could do JFK-LHR via the Pacific, and have it price at the 8,001+ range of an Atlantic award. This would mean one could do JFK-SYD-LHR with a stopover in SYD for 130,000 + 5,000 miles, no YQ, in F, or 100K + 5K in J. That seems pretty spectacular to me

Limited routes (look like Asia only) and high redemption rates...

Didn't analyze your specific routes but there are some rules they put in place to limit creative routings.

FWIW, as of today Aeroplan has added the ability to earn and redeem on Vistara Airlines, based in India.

Call waits are at ZERO now. I called last night, was answered in a matter of seconds.

I had an interesting thing, got J class tickets on UA MCO-EWR when I booked a Y class and paid Y mileage rate. I have a theory how this happened, maybe there is a new hole? Don't PM me. I'll try it again on my next trip and hopefully this newfound innocent trick works again.
