Jan 9 Update: Gogo inflight Wifi goes live in Canada, Auto Europe 7 days for 5 sale, 1,000 Bonus Rewards Points on Best Western stays

Here is what Thursday January 9th offers us:

News, Tips & Tricks

Here is one piece of news that got lost over the holiday break that we had not passed on yet. American Airlines is reintroducing service between Edmonton and Dallas. The flights will be once daily on their A319 aircraft and will launch on April 1st. If it hasn't already happened we are sure WestJet will place there codeshare on this route as they do on other AA flights between Canada and the U.S.. This is great news for AAdvantage members and oneworld members in the capital region as they now have easy access to American's large worldwide flight network. Source: airlineroute.net.
Here are the flight times.
AA1428 DFW1620 – 1925YEG 319 D
AA1493 YEG0810 – 1305DFW 319 D


Gogo, the inflight WiFi provider on 10 airlines has gone live here in Canada. While Air Canada does provide Gogo service on 2 of thier A319s between Toronto/Montreal and Los Angeles that service was limited to US airspace. Now with this announcement, not only will those AC flights but any flights on American or other carriers within Canadian airspace (ie Canada to U.S. or the U.S. overflying Canada to Europe) have WiFi access while in Canada. Back in December we passed along the news that WestJet is planning to introduce Wifi service in 2014 and with this Gogo announcement it wouldn't be a surprise if that is who WestJet choose to provide it.
