Aeroplan - Pay all with Cash vs Miles

This is being advertised lately that you can pay all with miles instead of the usual miles plus cash for taxes and fees. I was looking into it and for a $100 fee per ticket that we would normally pay, approximately 10,000 aeroplan miles are redeemed. So the usual 25,000 miles ticket plus $100 will cost 35,000 miles all in. Looks like a rip off, but am I missing something? Can someone log into their aeroplan and confirm.

Perhaps make sense if someone ran out of money and just had miles to use!!

where I belong
yes, it's a rip-off
and I believe it's more like 0.8 cents per mile, not even 1 full cent (10K miles for $100)
you can login and confirm yourself :)
