The Aeroplan MasterCard is for frequent flyers of Air Canada. But having said that, this is probably one of the worst airline credit cards.

The Aer Lingus MasterCard is probably the best card around for Irish immigrants who want to earn Aer Lingus miles for flights back to Ireland or Europe. The best thing about this card is that there is no annual fee and yet you can earn double miles.
