How do i book using my points through other Star Alliance members in order to avoid the hefty AC charges?
Welcome [USER=2161]@Abster[/USER] – If you have Aeroplan points you must book through their program; there’s no way around that. But fuel surcharges are not incurred on all airlines. See Lucky’s post from 2014:
As a reminder, [B]Aeroplan does not impose fuel surcharges for travel on Air China, Brussels, EgyptAir, Ethiopian, EVA Air, Scandinavian, Singapore, Swiss, Turkish, United, and US Airways, and the fuel surcharges on LOT are really low[/B].[/INDENT]
So there are ways to avoid those surcharges if you book carefully!
Think we need some more information here.
Are you trying to fly on AirCanada on an award ticket? But want to use another *A program to book the award?
What kind of points/miles do you have?
