November 5 Update: Lululemon and Viator added to Aeroplan eStore, American AAdvantage program updates, IHG Annual Sale

Aeroplan has added two new partners via their eStore online shopping portal. LuluLemon has now been added and to celebrate this partner you can earn 4x Aeroplan miles until November 11. The other partner is Viator which you can use to book city passes and tours, day trips, theme park and show tickets, adventures and family-friendly activities. Viator purchases will earn 5x miles until November 18!


American AAdvantage is increasing the spend requirement to reach Executive Platinum status during 2019. "The Elite Qualifying Dollar (EQD) requirement for AAdvantage® Executive Platinum status is increasing from $12,000 EQDs to $15,000 EQDs for the 2020 membership year." There are also changes to mileage earning on American's joint venture partner airlines and a reduction in elite qualifying mileage earning on Full Fare Economy class tickets on American. (Souce One Mile at a Time)

WOW Air,
the low cost Transatlantic airline out of Iceland that flies to Montreal and Toronto (and is slated to serve Vancouver) is set to be bought by Icelandair. If approved Icelandair would take over the airline but still run it separatly from Icelandair. Chances are then we would see one or the other flying to Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver since all three are currently served by both airlines. (Source USA Today)

Air Canada is changing their flights to Chile and Argentina flights back to a one plane service rather than two planes. As of April 2019 the flight will route Toronto-Santiago-Buenos Aires like it did a few years ago. (Source Routesonline)
