  1. Slightly off topic, but I posted awhile back about Air Canada now offering refunds for flights after February 1, 2020 which would cover most flights booked for Montreal 2020. Just wanted to report that I got notification that my requests for refund were processed, took about 17 days. Email says it may take 1-2 billing cycles to appear on my statement. Hopefully satellites who filed will hear back soon.
  2. Did they not award you any travel points at all? I think that's the default even if they refund your fees in cash. There does seem to be a process to request refund without a voucher (https://www.aircanada.com/refundrequest/?lang=en-CA). From what I read on a Forbes article the refund option is now available because it's part of Air Canada's financial aid agreement with the federal government. Based on the FAQ on this site if you weren't eligible for a refund before you may be eligible now so I don't think it hurts to try and fill out the form. I think when you cancel the only two options wer
  3. I was going to post this in the old 2020 Worlds thread but I think it's locked now because it's in the past. For any of you that had flights booked with Air Canada for Montreal that got cancelled, or if you requested a a travel voucher/points for those flight tickets, Air Canada is now issuing refunds for all travel dates on or after February 1, 2020 purchased before April 13, 2021 for flights cancelled either by Air Canada or by yourself for any reason. I got an email with a link to a request form for each of my flight tickets. Sounds like last day to request the refund is June 1
  4. Hope Yuzu gets some well deserved rest before he starts rigorous training again. I also think he got a little slimmer, but I think he's said before that summer show schedule he usually does he's usually at his lowest weight since the schedule is pretty continuous. He's been away from home for nearly 1.5 months at this point when you factor Worlds, quarantine, WTT, and SOI.
  5. Happy 4 year anniversary to Planet Hanyu! Can't believe the forum is already 4 years old, we're a whole Olympic-cycle old!
  6. I hope they've been testing the skaters regularly and isolating them as much as possible during rehearsals and such. Like someone mentioned Mao's tour is not too different with the lack of distancing and mask wearing while on ice (and they've been holding the show like this since maybe August of last year?). I'm hopeful that the skaters/crew can keep safe though I do wish they'd do away with group skates and not allow the audience to sit so close to the ice. It's just strange to see a different standard for an ice show that was done for World Team Trophy but you're probably right in that in Ja
  7. I think you're right that the spread of the virus is controllable, Hong Kong and other countries have clearly had a good handle on this which allows for more freedom and events like this with audience to continue and more social events to happen with low impact on infection. A while back I skimmed an article a that speculated some countries response to COVID control have faired better because those countries have dealt with infectious diseases more recently, so maybe Hong Kong's experience with SARS made them better prepared. I think the key difference here is the state of infectio
  8. Audience is allowed, the only thing they changed is they allowed people to request a refund due to the state of emergency I believe.
  9. I saw something online that compared some of his moves to Michael Jackson's and some of it seems to match! I wish I can remember where I saw it.
  10. I think they went through their slow-mo montage already and it started to replay, but the Ed Sheeran playlist is still going!
  11. I think she skated to Saint Honesty.
  12. All this slow-mo video, they had all these angles and are only now showing them?!
  13. Hmm I don't remember him saying he spent TOO much time on it, just that he spent a lot of time and giving an approximate breakdown of it during a 2 hour session as an example. I don't remember him saying anything about it in relation to his performance in Stockholm so I gotta wonder if Simon's telephone is connected to his imagination.
  14. I remember when I first started watching figure skating Simon and Chris would CONSTANTLY get their facts wrong, at the time I just blamed it on them misremembering but here they are just straight up spouting false info and misrepresenting stuff. This is your job, do some preparation jeez.
  15. Yeah I wish they had said something about the meaning and origin of the song, I thought it was decently known since 3.11 but I don't know. It's the 10th anniversary after all.
