Apparently Air Canada’s Aeroplan program will be making four positive changes on December 8. While it’s not fully published/public information, it seems to be accurate nonetheless. The changes mostly involve additional stopovers being allowed, but there’s one particularly cool change: it’ll be possible to make an award from North America to Asia a round the world trip, flying via the Atlantic on the outbound and the Pacific on the return, or vice versa. Considering their redemption levels are reasonable and their taxes are very low on multi-partner awards, this will make Aeroplan an even more attractive program to transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to. Full details can be found in this thread.
Here’s to hoping there are no strings attached, or “enhancements” right around the corner….
