best way to Aeroplan to Europe ?
I'm probably going to have to travel to either Denmark (Copenhagen) or Switzerland come late March/Early April from YYZ.
I lucked out with my car purchase so have over 200k aeroplan points and Black Status this year -- not really certain what's going to happen next year with the AC points transition, so hoping to get good value out of them now.
Is it best to book on the Aeroplan website, phone, travel agent...or some other method? (i've never used my points!)
Any specific airlines, or methods to get around, that minimizes extra fees? (always hear about how AC ups their fees when you use points).
I have only flown AC or Westjet to europe, so not sure if there's more comfortable rides. (I would probably check a suitcase, since I would try and stay at least 1 month in europe and backpack around since i'll have made the journey over already). i heard SWISS Air is pretty decent?
(note: I've read on here that Business Class to Europe gets great points value, but i'm really not that picky and would rather save points for other stuff rather than to roll like a baller!)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
