I wanted to fly to Toronto on a Thursday for the Canadian National Gymnastics Championships.
Only WestJet and Air Canada fly direct.
WestJet pilots are threatening strike.
Air Canada costs millions of dollars on Thursday. Inexpensive on Saturday.
I tried dread Aeroplan. No flights available Thursday or Friday. Only Saturday.
So … I’ll fly on the Saturday on Aeroplan points for FREE. No, not free. I still pay over a third of the ticket costs because TAXES. I hate loyalty programs, including air points.
