    Booked flights to Saint John to Ottawa for my wife and myself. Her’s was on our Aeroplan air miles (30,000 return) and mine full fare. The Aeroplan contact center charged $39 booking fee for each. My Black distinction (310,000 Air Miles) didn’t give ME any special treatment….always seems to be a twist that costs. It really makes me wonder about the value Aeroplan

      Hi Graeme,
      Bookings done through the Contact Center do incur a 30 dollar booking fee that is applied per passenger. Our agents are a great resource and they can answer your questions while the flight is being booked. You can also try booking your flight on Aeroplan.com where the booking fee is waived.
      Thanks,
      Jason

        dISTINCTION is useless, if you go to any other site you will see people complaining about the lack of perks. At minimum a dBlack should have a booking fee waived.

    I would like to know the definition of a ‘short-haul’ flight, as I would like to book flights to New York city from Ottawa for two people–but don’t know whether this distance is considered ‘short-haul’ or not (apparently I have enough miles for two short-haul flights). It seems to be very difficult to find this kind of information on the Aeroplan website–or anywhere else for that matter!! (I am relatively new to Aeroplan, but I would really appreciate advice on whether there’s a mileage chart or some other sort of information readily available so that I can figure these definitions out.)

    I had the same problem as Steve. The Aeroplan advice worked for me.

    Thanks!

    Last year I booked late to have family come out from Toronto area.

    This year I started checking early like in Sept. Date and times are flexible during a whole 4 week period so seriously I can’t be accused of not being flexible.

    BUT these same 4 weeks that I that I have been looking at for a flight in and out is still not available.

    My ‘Black’ level status has not helped in the least it would seem and now definitely seems worse. What’s up with the complete lack of available seats?

    Cheers

      Hi Renee,

      Air Canada and our other Star Alliance partners sometimes release seats a bit later. We suggest checking back often, you may find the flights you are looking for.

      Thanks,

    If I have just under 25,000, can I use the points I have to fly to florida and pay for the remaning amount?

    Thanks

    • Aeroplan December 5, 2013 at 10:40 am #

      Hi Karen,
      Yes you may top up the miles you are missing at a rate of 3 cents a mile plus any applicable taxes.
      Hope that helps,
      Jason

    I have not booked a flight in a little while but at one time (not that long ago) it required 25,000 points round trip from Eastern Canada to Vegas for example. Now I am looking at flights to Flordia and Vancouver – nothing below 50K (or double what they use to be). I placed in flex dates ect, nothing below 50K. Did the flight double in points in the last little while – if so, why such a hugh increase ?

      Hi Steve,
      Business class rewards for North America Long Haul are 50,000 where as economy is 25,000. This could have been what you were seeing. You can always call our Contact Center if you would like to go over availability options. The number is 800-361-5373.
