Travel Picture of the Week: The Great Wall of China

As one of Unesco’s World Heritage sites, the Great Wall of China is certainly a place to visit.  We love this shot captured by one of our Aeroplan Employees on his recent trip there.

    Up to now I was an Aeroplan Elite Member and I did not have to much problem to book a flight on points, but one has to be flexible or book way in advance like 360 days and that’s not always possible.
    I have heard from friends that it is very difficult to book a flight unless one is in the Elite class, other airlines like United make it a lot easier then Aeroplan.

    Last year I flew over 50000 miles mostly with United since our NATIONAL Airline does not fly to our National Capital from Chicago (shame on you).
    I use Chicago to connect to other destination in the US and flying through to Toronto would be a bad solution.

    In 2012 Aeroplan required 10000 miles or 5 flight segments to be flown with Air Canada to become an Elite member, since I had only 4 flight segments with AC, all my hard earned miles count for nothing.
    A warning to all frequent flyers out there who have to use some of the partner airlines all the times, you are better of to use their program and opt out of Aeroplan. In future I will be using the United program, after 27 years with Aeroplan they left me no choice to switch.

      Hi Walter,
      Thank you for taking the time to voice your feedback on this. Your input is important to us. I would encourage you to share this feedback directly with Air Canada as they manage that particular part of the Altitude Program.
      We value you as a member and hope that you’ll reconsider leaving the Aeroplan Program.
      Thanks and have a wonderful day,

    Over the last few years I have found it increasingly more DIFFICULT to use my air miles through Aeroplan. Even applying OVER six months in advance, the seats are not available in Business Class or even stierage. I am very seriously considering using up my air miles (if I can find a flight) and cancelling my Aeroplan Visa Card. I have been a supporter ofCIBC for M A N Y years and am extremely dissapointed. How could anyone geta flight to The Great Wall oc China using their Aeroplan Air Miles??????????????

    Focus on making your app work first (i.e., transactions not properly updating), then worry about blogging pretty pictures at us.
