Replace 9/18/23: Transfers to Aeroplan are again. Air Canada Aeroplan is as soon as once more listed within the switch companions and I simply transferred efficiently and booked an award. It’s a aid to see that this was fastened. H/T: Reader L Gross within the feedback.
The unique put up follows.
Frustratingly, transfers from American Specific Membership Rewards to Air Canada Aeroplan should not out there proper now and we don’t but know of a timeline for them to return. That is clearly a giant disappointment for Aeroplan followers. As I used to be seeking to make an Aeroplan reserving this week, I’ve been checking every day ready for this to get resolved, however at this level I’m shedding hope for a speedy resolution.
I first noticed this flagged yesterday morning in our Frequent Miler Insiders Fb group. In accordance with information factors I dug up at Flyertalk and reddit, transfers from Amex to Aeroplan have been down since no less than Tuesday, September twelfth.
I might have initially anticipated this to be a short-term scenario which may final for a number of hours, that wasn’t the case right here. As a substitute, Amex has eliminated Aeroplan from the record of switch accomplice applications, with the one point out of the partnership on the switch accomplice web page being the error message proven above, which reveals up on the high of the switch accomplice web page.
Aeroplan is amongst my favourite Amex switch companions, and I had an award I needed to e book, so I’m ready anxiously for this one to return. That mentioned, the way in which Amex has that error message up and eliminated Aeroplan from the principle accomplice record makes me nervous that this difficulty is predicted to take a very long time to resolve. I hope I’m mistaken about that and transfers come again very quickly, however I wouldn’t be stunned if this lasts some time simply primarily based on the way in which Amex is displaying it.
There was some weirdness with Star Alliance applications as of late. Turkish didn’t present any Star Alliance awards on their web site for months (solely relaunching them this week and naturally with many flights lacking that ought to be out there to e book), the LifeMiles web site has been very glitchy on a very good day (and for the previous a number of days I’ve solely been in a position to seek for LifeMiles awards by way of the app), and now transfers to Air Canada are down. All that leads me to consider that that is most probably simply an ongoing IT difficulty somewhat than foreshadowing any change within the partnership. I’m positive that the partnership will possible stay intact, however hopefully they restore these transfers quickly.
Hopefully this can be a case of an IT difficulty that may be resolved and we see transfers return, however within the meantime if you happen to want Air Canada Aeroplan factors, you’ll must get them from Chase transfers, Capital One transfers, or Bilt transfers.
