I purchased a flight pass last night and tried to book a flight this morning. Everything is sold out. I tried different days, different locations. All the same. So I assume that we will be hearing shortly from AC.

Apparently AC has just removed the FAQ page that stated that flight pass prices are guaranteed even if the price of them increases - it now redirects to the home page. (From FT)

To think that they would honour the price. From the look of it...they are preparing to cancel and clean up any evidence. Stop you from booking by putting a sold out sign so they won't confined to 24 hours (so they give themselves more time), then clean up anything that can support the idea that flight passes are final (can't price match nor increased in price). Then once all of those done, they will cancel all.

I guess we can't access that page now. You took a screenshot from AC site saying " The price of the Flight Pass is guaranteed. You will pay nothing more if the price of the Flight Pass changes after you purchase it." If yes, please post it here. Will be useful if they makes cancelation or don't give reasonable compensation.

Most likely we will get cancelled. They are losing like 8.8k a pass, adds up quick

They aren't losing anything. These business seats stay empty and are only filled with upgrades.

This has nothing to do with the business seats, even if they were in economy class AC would be losing money considering it's an average revenus of $90 per flight segment.

What is a Flight Pass?
The Flight Pass is a new aircanada.com feature. It can only be accessed using your Aeroplan number and PIN, or by your travel agent if the purchase is made by them. Once you’ve purchased your Flight Pass, aircanada.com will open a personal online Flight Pass for you, containing your pre-paid flight credits.

Access the Flight Pass area to:

• Purchase a Flight Pass and use your pre-paid flight credits
• Make bookings using your pre-paid flight credits for your Flight Pass.
• Change flight time and dates for any bookings originally made using a flight credit
• Cancel bookings and re-credit your Flight Pass, for any bookings originally made using a flight credit
• See how many credits you have used.

What are Flight Credits?



Air Canada Flight Passes are comprised of Flight Credits. Each Flight Credit is used for one flight segment, one direct flight, or connecting flights between an origin and a destination. The price paid for flight pass and any applicable taxes is shown on the original Purchase Receipt. Air Canada does not provide pro-rata purchase receipts when each Flight Credit is used. However, for calculation purposes the implied value of each Flight Credit may be calculated by dividing the total purchase price shown on the Purchase Receipt by the number of Flight Credits purchased. A normal round-trip flight is equivalent to two (2) Flight Credits.

What are the benefits of purchasing an Oil Express Pass?



Purchase 6 flight credits to receive great convenience, flexibility and value:
• Great savings off already low Tango fare when you purchase an Oil Express Pass
• no advance purchase and no minimum stay requirements
• use one flight credit per direction

Does the price of an Oil Express Pass include taxes or extra fees?



The cost of an Oil Patch Flight is shown in Canadian dollars. Only the GST (and QST where applicable) will be added when you make your Flight Pass purchase. No other additional fees or surcharges will be applied when you book your credits.

What happens if the Flight Pass price changes after I purchase it?

The price of the Flight Pass is guaranteed. You will pay nothing more if the price of the Flight Pass changes after you purchase it.

When my wife used to work for AirCanada we would fly from YWG (Winnipeg) to YVR Vancouver for about $70-$90 each way. Mind you we flew standby but ended up with whatever seats were on the plane, even if we were not seated next to each other. So it's not like air Canada is "losing" too much money.

If there were to revoke the passes it would be a media frenzy unless they want to pull a United and revoke the flight passes. Air Canada could be nice and pull an American Airlines

I do fly business class actually. But I use my Aeroplan miles.

I can tell you probably fly business class paid for with your/some companies money, so they can use it as a write off and you can feel important.

Funny reading flyer talks posters and how they feel so much more important than RFDers. "The scum on RFD probably never flown J class"

These are the same losers that post selfies of their workouts all day on Facebook.
