    Hoping that this nightmare of Aeroplan finishes ASAP because have a limit of 15000 miles on in order to trade or redeem the miles is annoying.
    Even the time limit decided for this kind of miles is out of any normal criteria,it is not like Airmails that the value is higher so 15000 miles could be enough for a short haul trip.
    Anyways as an Aeroplan customer I hope that things change fast otherwise I am afraid that Aeroplan will not be part of our life anymore.
    Thanks for listening.
