Hey guys - planning to travel from Pittsburgh to New York this week. With covid rising wanted to get an opinion. I don’t have to travel but would like to - I tend to take all the right precautions. Suggestions - Amtrak or Delta flight?

Flying during covid is 10x worse than before. Got into an argument today with a couple sitting behind me about not wearing a mask. Come on Delta, actually enforce mask wearing .

SO and I are flying today. Delta is showing I’m at the top of the list for upgrades (1 available), what are the odds that Delta allows both of us to move up considering first class is only seating one per side (I.e. we’d sit together on the same side)? Cool your 🔥 please!

AA Exec Plat here. Just flew Delta and they are so so good. Great covid related communication, fully sanitised aircraft, back to front boarding, handed each passenger a wipe upon boarding and offered more later. Flight hasn't even started yet and I'm floored. Their LAX lounge was also open and perfectly planned for the pandemic.

Resigning from my job and have about 75k points on a corporate Amex. I don’t believe I am able to transfer these point to any of Amex’s free card options (since those are all cash back rewards). Is my best bet to transfer them to Delta at a 1:1 rate?

Receiving an inheritance soon that is mostly stock. One of the largest holdings is down around $300k total still (my share is split with 2 others) from the March crash. My attorney says they usually recommend liquidating. But that means there’s still a big delta that could grow tax free. The stock is TFC (Truist Financial). Anyone have any thoughts / recommendations? Thanks.
