EDIT: turns out you do earn Altitude Qualifying Miles
How do u use earned miles for free flights or low cost ones?

$2,260 per month for unlimited travel. Great. But how many flights can you take in that time while still actually enjoying where you land? Seems kinda pointless if you actually want to see Canada.
If you fly once each day its $70 a trip ($2100/30days). Or $525/week ...

Might be worth it compared to just buying tickets... Its probably for tourists.

Does any airline going to the US have this too?

Or anywhere else in the world even?

Greyhound had a all u can travel for $150 years ago, included the US AND CANADA...

It you let them continue to rip off people daily, you don't need bail out. Same for banks
As someone who has first-hand knowledge of this industry...Canadians aren't getting ripped off. Sure the prices aren't as cheap as people would like them to be, but airlines operate on 2% margins...think about that for a second. For every $100 they are able to squeeze out of your pocket, they put $2 in the bank to be able to pay employees, vendors, utilities, gas, etc.

This industry is quite large in Canada and employes a very large number of Canadians and while many other industries have seen bails out, travel, tourism, and airlines haven't had a defined bailout package for their industry yet.

Lol, airlines, car companies, trains, are all dressed up government departments. The label doesn't matter. Tesla is Hundred Points Symbol government backed. So are airlines. They fly with 5 ppl to far destinations as scheduled all the time. U cant operate like that unless u hv some govt privileges... Time we all woke up...

Stupid question, but aren’t you supposed to quarantine for 2 weeks after traveling anyways, even traveling within Canada? In that case, that’s only like 2 flights a month then...

It depends on the provinces. https://time-to-travel.ca/where-canadia ... travel-now Obviously if you're travelling to provinces with the self isolation in effect then you wouldn't even be considering the Flight Pass and Air Canada isn't targeting you.

Me against all possible logic: Meh, $2k to travel around western Canada all month, what a deal. I'll buy.

Trudeau and all premiers 72 hours after purchase while boarding to Toronto for the 2nd time in 48 hours, cause why not: Provincial borders shut due to surge in COVID-19 cases!

Me on hold with Air Canada: Nothing we can do sir, thanks for supporting Air Canada during these difficult times.

12 days later: Positive covid test

Sounds like a future Toronto Star article.

WestJet is as bad as Air Canada. They refused to provide refunds as well for flights THEY cancelled. And if they moved your flight departure by 2 days they didn’t even consider it a cancellation, they said it was a flight change! As if it was a couple hours difference and expected you to adjust your travel itinerary with short notice.

I will always choose foreign operated (eg US or UK) over a Canadian airline in the future. I learned my lesson! At least they tried to protect the consumers. And AC and the gov shot themselves in the foot because now no one wants to book even far into the future. So they have lost potential “new bookings”.

Isn’t it just one club?

Or are there clubs associated to each airplane?
