Air Canada Top Tier Programme Changes Announced
The announcement of changes to the Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer programme have been posted in the 2011 Air Canada Top Tier Program Changes – General Discussion thread, which include:
- Electronic upgrades instead of paper upgrade currency
- A choice of Maple Leaf Club admission for a friend in addition to bonus miles and electronic upgrade credits for Super Elite members
- A new Prestige Select Privilege of 35% discount on admission into a Maple Leaf Club
- A minimum flight requirement of 10,000 status miles or 5 status flight segments on eligible flights operated by Air Canada or on behalf of Air Canada by Jazz, Air Georgian Limited (doing business as Air Alliance), Exploits Valley Air Services LTD, Central Mountain Air and Sky Regional Airlines.
So why are some FlyerTalk members so upset with the changes that they are considering switching from the Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flier programme to one of a different airline?
