Sep 25 Update: Air Canada Top Tier now Altitude, earn up to 100K or more AAdvantage Miles on Transatlantic flights

News, Tips & Tricks
You may recall my post detailing the changes coming to the Air Canada Top Tier program for 2013. On September 20th Air Canada officially announced the changes and with it comes a name change to the Top Tier program. It will now be known as Air Canada Altitude instead of Air Canada Top Tier. There is a good post on FlyerTalk from Air Canada with an overview on the program changes. As I posted in that earlier post, there will now be 5 levels of 'elite status' within Air Canada Altitude as follows:
Altitude Prestige 25K (25,000 Status Miles or 25 Status Segments)
Altitude Elite 35K (35,000 Status Miles or 35 Status Segments)
Altitude Elite 50K (50,000 Status Miles or 50 Status Segments)
Altitude Elite 75K (75,000 Status Miles or 75 Status Segments)
Altitude Super Elite 100K (100,000 Status Miles or 95 Status Segments)
Complete details on the program can be found at

In the bonus offers check out American Airlines' new offer for Transatlantic flights on American, British Airways and Iberia. Since BA is included you don't have to travel via the U.S. to take advantage of this offer. I expect we'll see an offer from British Airways for their Executive Club members and Iberia for their Plus members offering the same or similar bonuses.

  1. Typical Air Canada approach to loyalty and customer service. Elite status is now basically the previous Prestige status. If you're going to add more levels then create more rewards rather than redistributing them. Unbelievable.
