Formerly Fun

In Air Canada’s new “e-zine” there’s an “article” titled “ has your extra Miles” that explains how Aeroplan miles are awarded for various fare classes. It says, in part (emphasis mine):

  • 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $3 spent on Tango fares
  • 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $2 spent on Tango Plus fares (formerly Fun)
  • 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $1 spent on Latitude, Latitude Plus (formerly Freedom) and Executive Class fares

It’s bad enough that Air Canada has a weird multi-level fare structure with weird nonsensical names. And that they then change these names. But surely someone there must realize that when you used to have a fare class named “Fun” you’re going to run into double entendre problems in future.

The loss of ‘freedom’ worries me more, but then again it’s Air Canada so they were likely legally compelled t ostop using the word ‘freedom’ due to false advertizing regulations.
