Air Canada launched a new flight bonus promotion for travel to Asia last
week. This offer provides up to 6,000 bonus miles for the flights we
list below. Always great to have a bonus for flights that you may be
planning (the bonus is available on bookings made prior to October 11)
and maybe if you are flying alone. Why do we say that? We noticed a new
term and condition on this offer that is a pretty shady move on Air
Canada’s part. Now I don’t recall seeing this before but it is possible
it has been on other bonus miles promotions but the term as we found now
states that only the first person on a reservation earns the bonus.
The Bonus Aeroplan Miles for this offer will only be credited to the
first passenger with their Aeroplan Number listed (appended) on the
reservation. Should this passenger cancel his/her flights, the Bonus
Aeroplan Miles will be awarded to the next passenger with their Aeroplan
Number listed, which is now the first listed on the reservation.
Seriously Air Canada? Not only are you members already peeved about all
your flight bonus offers being for new bookings only but to limit the
bonus to the first person on the reservation? Way to reward a family
that wants to fly to Asia with you. Guess if you want your family of
four or however many to take advantage of this bonus you’ll have to make
separate reservations for each and have the PNRs linked afterward.
Earn up to 6,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you book a round trip or two
one way segments on Air Canada for travel between Canada and Asia. Full details, online registration and booking (Registration is required)
