Aeroplan is the Air Canada frequent flyer program and one of the most popular Star Alliance programs in the US. It partners with all credit card programs except Citi (Chase partnership is expected to go live in 2021) and this is how most US consumers use the program. The program employs dynamic pricing for Air Canada operated flights, so the best uses of the program are for partner airlines redemptions as they still use an award chart.
