June 19 Update: Fly lie flat business class between Halifax and Montreal for 15,000 miles, get 20% More Rewards back when redeeming for gift cards & more

For the summer season Air Canada is flying an internationally configured Airbus A330 once a day between Montreal and Halifax. If you have never flown international business class before then this is a good opportunity to do so. Sure it's only about 1-1/2 hours but it is a short haul redemption meaning it costs only 15,000 miles one way + $90 in taxes. The same revenue ticket is $530, which gives you about a value of 2.9 cents per mile redeemed. Not great but not bad as well! If you think you would never get enough Aeroplan miles to try business class on a long haul flight then this is your other option to say you have tried a lie flat seat!

The A330 will be flown on the route until October 27th. Here is the schedule for this flight:
AC664 YUL1340 – 1607YHZ 333 D
AC669 YHZ1730 – 1806YUL 333 D

There are several other routes where you can experience the international aircraft configuration for as little at 15,000 miles in business class:
- one flight per day between Toronto and Montreal where the A330 is flown
- one flight per day between Toronto and Ottawa where the 767-300 is flown

More Rewards is offering 20% back in points when you redeem points for select gift cards. If you are looking for value from More Rewards then gift cards are not the way to go, even with 20% back. However if you don't collect many points to redeem for travel (even though you can redeem any amount of points towards travel and pay the rest with cash) then this gift card option gives you something and you're getting a bonus for it.
