I just received an email today letting me know that all confirmed seats for the Christmas Flight Program are being re-evaluated due to "operational demands".   Once people start getting told their flights are cancelled I bet they will wish even more that the PIL program was further ahead if not done.

Riiiiight.  Grasping at straws are we?  No one guaranteed the money by Xmas so it is a horribly illogical argument to make.

Once again:

Just pretend that the PIL didn't exist.  What would you do?

Now do it.

Flights are all in limbo right now.

Got an email today.  We had previously been confirmed, now everything is off, we'll all be advised on Tuesday as to who still gets a flight.

From the email:

Quote
.Christmas Flights are being re evaluated due to operational demands. DND will first cancel all flights then will rebook utilizing the
new aircraft availabilty. Please be advised there will be significant changes in the amount of seats available on each leg. Anyone
with a confirmed seat please be advised this confirmation is no longer valid. New confirmed / unconfirmed statuses will be
received  by the member on  Dec 10. Please during this period do not call NPSC or Travel Services to check on your flight status

Hopefully a lesson will be learned from this.
Christmas flights are always subject to change at short notice due to operational requirements etc..
Put some money away in case you get bumped.
The PIL never had a guaranteed end date. It might be taking longer than some like, me included, but to plan anything based on those funds is just asking for problems.
I've gotten calls from guys stuck in the middle of the country because they were bumped off of a flight.
If I remember correctly the CANFORGENS clearly stated that it is each members responsibility to have alternate travel arrangements or something to that effect. I might be wrong about that one but I'm pretty sure it used to be in there.
I do hope people who are counting on the PIL money before Christmas do get it, but having said that I wouldn't count on it.

Yep, exactly.  I have no problem with that.  If I get bumped, I get bumped.  I just fall back to plan B or C (Aeroplan points or stay home)  That won't stop some from being ticked no doubt.  As we see with this thread there are always those who don't plan ahead and who have a sense of entitlement.

Ouch!
Almost makes me glad we didn't get our flights this year, ended up using AirMiles to book flights the day after we got the word that the flights were full.  It'd be a panic level Defcon-6 if we were cut this close to the planned flights, scrambling to get some seats on a civvy carrier.

Good luck - hope you make it back onto the list and it works out!

Anyone know is there's anything coming down about a Christmas Travel Program for 2018? Last year the CANFORGEN came out end Sept, however this year nothing heard. As far as I know they do it every year, but this year I can't find a thing. Thanks!

If you take the flight, bring a large bottle of hand sanitizer.  Both times I took that flight, I ended up sick as a dog.  It's a flying petri dish.
