I wonder if many people will use this. Also, I wonder which option would be best: bonus or points back?

For Aeroplan redemption the 50% points back was definitely the better deal but if anyone missed it you can take advantage of 30% off Aeroplan redemption.

Blows my mind that people are willing to consider travelling by plane by September 2020. Especially since Air Canada decided to eliminate the social distancing with the vacant middle seat. No thank you.

Wake me up when September ends.

Corrected your post.

Honestly, I wish we could travel now, but a minority of Canadians ruin it for the majority. As for the US, the majority are in denial.

Buddy keep living in disproportionate fear. You're facing forward on a plane with everyone wearing a mask and a better air filtration system than any grocery store youve been going to over the past 4 months.

I've been watching the news closely and although they've detected people that have flown with covid19, i havent seen one article showing that this actually led to an outbreak with other passengers.

Flying, especially within Canada, seems by all accounts to be quite an organized and safe experience. Security lines empty, airports empty, seats beside you most likely empty since planes are about half full. Had no problems going to YVR and back last month.

The Aeroplan side is not as good as the 50% return earlier this year, but still good for people who missed it. And good that they are including something for people who book cash fares, as well.

There are certainly places that are quite safe to travel to, especially domestically. Within the Atlantic provinces, for example.

leaving the middle seat empty is meaningless in terms of reducing risk. i mean do you think 17 inches is going to make a difference? the mandatory masks is the difference maker

within canada with how low the cases are, I don't see anymore risk hoping on a plane than going to eat at a restaurant or going to the gym etc.

Yes. I do believe 17 inches will make a difference. I'll take every single inch away from another human being that I can get in the middle of this pandemic.

I agree that going to restaurants and gyms can be just as risky as flying. Which is why I don't plan on going to restaurants or gyms anytime soon. I spent a fair amount of money building a home gym and it's serving my needs.

I also wouldn't send my children to school in September if I had any.

The government can open up whatever they want based on their various phases. It's up to you to decide if it's safe for you and your family.

What's the worst that can happen if you're overtly careful during this pandemic? You miss out on dining experiences? You miss out on vacations?

What's the worst that can happen if you're overtly reckless during this pandemic?

40% off business or 30% off economy is a better deal
Since this time around it’s not restricted to North America only.

Example: YYZ-TOKYO Buiness 75K - 40% = 45,000 points which is absolutely a steal for a non stop flight to Asia

The fine print states that it is with Air Canada flights only. I am guessing low tax airlines like Turkish are not part of the deal which really kills it for me.

Can you point to one flight, anywhere in the world, linked to an outbreak of cases? No? Stop spreading fear.

you can fly to japan where the fuel surcharge is regulated, but you have to make sure that you can enter the country otherwise it is meaningless.

While airplanes may have a better filtration/sanitation system than grocery stores, it's still an enclosed area with people packed closely together, and you're spending hours near them. A grocery store is bigger, with (sometimes) fewer people spread out, and you're spending an hour in there, tops.

That said, the most recent uptick in cases is being mostly attributed to young people having house parties, and/or bars. With little to no socialization on a plane and everyone wearing masks, the risk is lower, but not nil. It's up to everyone to determine if they're comfortable traveling.

AC Has remove the fuel surcharge for most of its flights if not all, for example from Toronto to Hong Kong round-trip Taxex is only $100 is not much more than if you fly on the low tax carrier like Turkish or EVA

This is not true, previous promotion is on Canada and US flight only. This one includes international as long as it is operated by Air Canada. Which means it is much more applicable than the previous promotion

Not true! Air Canada cannot survive without surcharges

That’s because Hong Kong doesn’t allow fuel surcharges, same with Japan and Brazil (minimum fuel surcharges)
