I think there is a basis for a class action suit with Aeroplan, not only scamming points, but now charging what they call a "combined tax" on the ticket of up to 50% of the ticket value. I booked reward travel from Victoria to Edmonton and they charged me $147.00 - my friend booked a reward ticket for the same trip, since we were traveling together and she only got charged a fee of $36.00. When I phoned back to question this, they said that Air Canada had leveyed a fuel surcharge that they had to charge me - BUT NOT MY FRIEND!!!
We need to collect info about this and to start a class action suit.
