Aeroplan / mystery taxes & fees

1 Ontario, Canada Review updated:

I was considering a trip from Toronto to Philadelphia using my Aeroplan points and I was astonished to find my free flight would cost and additional $173.84 in taxes and surcharges. Had I booked a cash-fare flight the same taxes and surcharges would be only $121.07. I phoned Aeroplan and gave up after 15 minutes when I could not get a human to answer my call.

Flying Air Canada is bad enough. Now I am fed up with Aeroplan too. Once I finish using my points it is game over. I'll just book online and pay the going fare using a travel search engine. Better still, I won't be paying that $120 annual credit card fee to CIBC for a rip-off service on an airline that is pure crap.

    You pay them$120 a year!! you poor sucker! let me see, you've been a member of Aeroplan since 2008. Thats $120 x 8 years, that's $960.

    All for the privilege of paying Aeroplan $174 PLUS POINTS, for a ticket you could purchase for $120 and NO POINTS!!!

    You just got ripped off of $1010.00!!!

    Stop throwing away your $120 a year people, it's just a sophisticated scam.
