April 21 Update: Air Canada temporarily suspends transborder U.S. flights, 2x cash back at Rakuten, Emirates pushes back re-launch of flights to July 1

Air Canada has announced the suspension of all U.S.
transborder flights as of April 26. This is in response to the extension
of the closure of the Canada-U.S. border to non-essential travel for
another 30 days. Air Canada has been flying limited flights between
Canada and the U.S. since the middle of March primarily for the repatriation of Canadians who were in the U.S. The suspension of
flights to the U.S. is currently set to run until May 22. (Source Air Canada)

 And how quickly things change – yesterday we let you know about
getting 3x cash back at Rakuten but that has dropped back down to 2x now
at select retailers for Earth Week. Looking at the offers however shows
some retailers are still at 3x or even more. Find out more here.

Emirates has once again pushed back the launch of
passenger flights. They are now slated to start up on July 1st, yes not
until July! If everything holds true they will start to fly to Toronto
once again with a 5x weekly schedule. Chances are that this schedule
will change again before then. (Source RoutesOnline)
