13hr Delay of my "job"..stuck in LA what to do

After arriving in LAX to pick the aircraft for my job, I was told that it had been delayed to maintenance...13hrs.

What to do what to do..

A quick log in to Air Canada's flight pass system and I am on my way from LAX to Toronto on the red eye. With a 55 minute connection in Toronto on my way back to LAX.

4500 flight miles( X 2.75 = 12,375 actual) and a savings of hotel cost for me :)

I arrived back in LA with 3 hrs to spare before going to work!

Do you get op-ups on every flight that offers J class?

Truly amazing. I love how you are able to tuck in the smallest of trips here and there for maximum effect. Carry on!

Way to go using the noodle and maximizing points opportunities when they present themselves.

Just any case you miss it Marc:

Flying for a million miles with our North America Unlimited Pass. We felt confident that our industry leading North America Unlimited Pass would get the attention and interest of some frequent flyers, but Mr. Marc Tacchi has taken it to a whole new level. Vancouver based Mr. Tacchi set up as his objective to try to rack up a million frequent flier points within the two months the pass is valid for – it ends Nov. 30. In the current issue of Macleans magazine, there’s an article about his exploits, and he comments very positively about our Maple Leaf lounges and other aspects of our services. We’re watching his progress with great interest and wish this most frequent of fliers every success in his quest.

Fascinating! What would have happened if the 13 gap in LA wasn't enough to get back from Toronto? What if there were aircraft problems? Best wishes to you for safe travel, mr. risky!!!
