Reminder: last day to book Aeroplan awards before mileage increase

As I blogged about in April, Aeroplan will be adjusting their award charts as of July 15, which is Friday. So that makes today (Thursday) the last day to book awards at their old award prices. Some awards, including those for travel between North American and Asia/Australia, are going up by close to 50%.

Keep in mind that Aeroplan’s call center closes at midnight eastern time, so leave plenty of time to ticket tomorrow.

Aeroplan, I’ll miss the 120,000 mile round-the-world adventures I had with you.

    Thanks heaps lucky, I just managed to scrape enough miles + a few $ to get a 1st class SYD-SFO for 140k, better than 135k for business tomorrow.

    So out of curiosity, which *A program will you be using (and is most advantageous) now? Regular Mileage Plus?

    Hi Lucky and Readers,

    Thanks to your advice, my wife and I booked:
    YVR-YYC-FRA-MUC-BKK-IST-ATH-FRA-YVR in DEC 2010
    (all in Business)

    and this one for NOV 2011
    YVR-YUL Business
    YUL-ZRH First
    ZRH-BKK First
    BKK-HKG Business
    HKG-BKK Business
    BKK-FCO First
    FCO-ZRH Business
    ZRH-YUL First
    YUL-YVR Business

    And this one for April 2012 (my goal was 10 legs in First)
    YVR-FRA First
    FRA-ICN First
    ICN-NRT First
    NRT-BKK First for Wife, Bus for me
    BKK-SGN First (LH)
    SGN-BKK Business (TH)
    BKK-HKK First
    HKK-FRA First
    FRA-YVR First

    On Paper I had it all in First (there’s a short flight from BKK-SGN (Continuation of LH FRA-BKK-SGN which has first) prob is that this one is only 3 X Per week and the hardest part was getting. HKG-FRA there was only 1 flight in April with 2X First.

    Before reading your blog Lucky, I thought
    YVR-FRA-DXB and Back in first was a good value !!!!

    Thanks Again Lucky,
