Following on the heels of unveiling of the new Aeroplan program, Air Canada is introducing a new benefit for their Super Elite members. While they are not currently offering Air Canada Bistro service onboard their flights, as soon as it returns, they will offer a complimentary inflight refreshment to Super Elite members traveling in Economy Class.

Below are the details of how they’re describing the benefit to their members:

Complimentary In-Flight Refreshment

Beginning when we reintroduce Air Canada Bistro service onboard, and subject to the product selection available on your flight, Aeroplan Super Elite members can enjoy one free alcoholic beverage and one free snack item when traveling on Air Canada, Air Canada Express or Air Canada Rouge in Economy Class. Note that alcoholic beverages up to a value of $6.95 are eligible, while meal and fresh snack options (such as sandwiches and salads) are not eligible.

This will be communicated today as part of an e-mail being deployed to our status members, reinforcing the new Aeroplan Elite status benefits announced back on August 11, such as Priority Rewards and Status Pass.
