Many people know that only the Miles and More program's Senator and Hon Circle members can redeem Swiss Air's First Class reward flight. You certainly cannot use your Aeroplan miles or any other Star Alliance program miles to book Swiss First Class award flight.
It seems that Aeroplan is handing out the Christmas candy.
As for now, you can book Swiss First class flights from aeroplan.com.
I know someone just booked it, and if you are shopping for an award flight, make sure check it out NOW!
I just booked a flight from Zurich to Chicago for next April, and I was able to select the seat on Swiss's website.
The eticket has not been issued though, so finger crossed!!! Just got an email from Aeroplan, the ticket is officially issued!!!
Below is a random search I did on aeroplan.com
