Hi all, I've done some searching on aeroplan.com as well as google trying to find out if there is a way I can book a flight using my aeroplan miles for my brother to come visit me on aircanada from yyz to yyc. I always hear of stories of friends flying on a family members airmiles but can't figure out how to do it myself. Air Canada charges 2 cents a mile to transfer to another aeroplan member - that would be $500 to transfer the amount of miles (25 000) for a yyz-yyc flight (almost the cost of a normal flight itself!)
Anyone have an ideas? I haven't booked anything so don't know if I can charge the name of the passenger during the booking process. I assume when you book online it is only for the travel whose name is on the aeroplan number?
