Booking a trip to ATL in a few months. I have Alaska Air MVP Gold. They are phasing in their oneworld membership throughout 2021, but it’s not clear to me what benefit, if any, I’d get from booking an AA flight via AS’s website (ie “marketed as an Alaska flight, but operating as AA”). I think these would count as partner miles, not Alaska miles, even though it’s purchasedart AS. This would be my only non-Alaska flight so partner miles are less useful than Alaska miles. Am I missing something?
Thoughts on the Away carry on? Have any of you had difficulties with the bigger carry on dimensions - esp when flying Alaska which has stricter restrictions on the sizes?

Hi All, I have two offers - one for AWS L5 with a TC of ~$215K per year over the next 4 years (150k base, rest in bonus and stocks). The other is from a seed stage startup, base is 130K and are providing higher number of stocks with a huge upside of the startup does well. TC at the startup blows up to ~250K per year for the next 4 year if they get 10-15X growth. Both roles are similar in terms of work with higher opportunity to grow at the startup. Any advice on how I should evaluate?
