January 9 Update: Throwback to 2007 reward flight comparisons, Air Canada rouge to offer summer seasonal Calgary-London, ON service, Aer Lingus spring seat sale

Throwback Thursday!

Earlier today we provided you with details on our feature about what airline and hotel programs you can earn miles and points with with Canadian credit cards. In the update post
I provided a screen shot of what the chart looked like way back in 2005
and got me thinking I should do the occasional throwback Thursday here
on the blog. The first thing I thought of was these charts I used to
publish comparing what award tickets cost in miles for Canadians across a
bunch of frequent flyer programs. These charts came out in 2006 and
that was the time when many of the SkyTeam airlines were your best bet
for getting from Canada to Hawaii for the least amount of miles
possible! And guess what – you can still access the chart here (hasn’t been updated since 2007 as the upkeep was intense due to constant changes in mileage amounts from so many programs)

Air Canada is finally bringing their Calgary to London
Ontario summer seasonal service to fruition. The flights will operate
daily with a Rouge A319 from June 24 to October 15. (Source RoutesOnline)
