We're looking at cashing in our Aeroplan miles to get us from Fredericton to Toronto to catch a charter flight to the Caribbean out of YYZ. Never done this before and I am wondering if anyone could share experiences of flying using Aeroplan points - is there a danger of getting bumped? Can we assume our reward points-booked flights are as reliable as regular paid AC bookings? We are planning to use the reward flights to fly up the day before the charter leaves and fly home the day after it returns, just to be safe.
Any input would be appreciated.
