If I get upgraded to a Delta One seat on a domestic flight, do I still get access to the Delta Sky Club? Or is that only for paid Delta One tickets?
How do I pick the best airline and hotel chain for reward status? I'm about to start traveling a lot more next year, and I don't have any real strong loyalties. I live in the north-east in a mid-sized city, and will be traveling mostly in the north-east. My airport is primarily served by American, Delta and Southwest, but isn't a hub for any airline.
Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!
Hey guys. For those planning a trip to India over the winter holidays, are flights with layovers still tricky, or good as long as you have vaccination / negative test? Specifically looking at Delta/Virgin Atlantic with layover in London. Thank you.
Thinking about cashing out my City TY points for cash and closing Citi Premier if they don't give me a retention bonus. Am I missing any obvious plays to get significantly more than 1c per point? There are occasionally transfer bonuses but i mostly fly Delta and Southwest and the only tempting one was Virgin and the ability to book Delta first class for a decent rate but that was a few years ago, not sure that is still an option. No international travel planned in immediate future.
Are HOAs and property taxes a thing in London? Debating a job btwn nyc and London and while at first glance nyc looks better money wise, housing seems so so much more expensive if buying. HOA plus property taxes add thousands to the mortgage. Wondering how that looks like in London. Can’t find anything but initial stamp tax in whicb case the pay delta is narrowing…
I wanted to ask 2 questions 1. I used to hear Bain ME had an aweful culture before they made some major changes, firing leadership etc. and now apparently it has improved. Is it true? 2. Does a Partner 1 in MBB in ME making significantly more than in other firms ( Startegy&, OW, Kearney, Accenture).. Just wanted to know how large is the delta considering avg. performance
Anyone flown Delta Comfort+ or Premium Select Delta/Virgin? Any good? Seats recline far, service good? Thanks!
Soooo......is united gonna extend my 1k status or should I just burn thru my upgrades now? Thought they'd follow suit with delta but.....
Alright, which biglaw firms in Houston/Austin are hiring class of 2020 for corporate/finance? I was magna at a top school if it matters since I’m a recent grad. My firm is good about giving us substantive work early so I have some decent experience for my level. My firm is pretending like the delta variant doesn’t exist and expects us in the office daily without masks. I have an immunocompromised partner and I’m just done with my firm prioritizing culture and back to office over our health.
Am I alone in thinking that weekly testing / vaccines are not sufficient to justify parents going in regularly? Young child at home and at-risk parents still top of mind with delta around
Planning a trip to Portugal in December (from US) and am a bit hesitant that the EU will block US citizens due to delta, although I am vaccinated. Should I still book or hold back?
Anyone use the AmEx Delta Reserve card? Do you find the perks (especially the MQM bonuses) to be worth giving up the 2x points at restaurants/markets that the Delta Platinum card offers? Thinking of upgrading, but I’m worried it would be a net-loss on overall points.
Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
Anyone have experience flying with pets on Delta? If they’re small do they have to remain in kennel the whole flight?
Money Motivated … “In the two weeks since Delta Air Lines announced a $200 monthly health insurance surcharge for unvaccinated employees, 20% of Delta Air Lines unvaccinated employees have already gotten the ‘jab’ “ Delta's $200 a month experiment for changing unvaccinated minds could be working | https://www.cnbc.com/2021/09/09/unvaccinated-delta-air-lines-employees-face-health-insurance-surcharge.html?__source=iosappshare%7Ccom.apple.UIKit.activity.CopyToPasteboard
Delta Air Lines' $200 per month experiment for changing unvaccinated employees' minds seems to be working
Who here has had (presumably, anyway) Delta? Vaccinated or unvaccinated. Curious about your experience w/ it.
Need help. I have an upcoming family trip and we’re flying with Delta. We have an infant which I want to add to our existing delta itinerary. Surprisingly their website has no simple/straightforward way to do it yourself. So I’m calling their customer service which has me in the queue forever (twice)!! Anyone has faced this situation lately? How did you go about it ??
Had an abnb res for $600 starting fri, but the host just canceled today. Equivalent options are $1k. CS agent said they wouldn’t cover the delta.. any advice on how to negotiate this?
We are thinking of pulling our 8 month old out of daycare due to delta (and no vaccine mandate) and having a nanny until she gets the vaccine. Our cleaning lady expressed interest (totally trust her) and could do it two days a week and she may have another friend do the other three days. Is this a bad idea? I trust the caregivers, just in terms of logistics. Also, there will likely be a language barrier. We are also thinking of doing a nanny share but it’s hard to find another family.
Has anyone recovered from covid, got vaccinated and contracted the delta variant? Im having some symptoms and Im paranoid since i need to travel this week. Just took the pcr test and waiting for results. I know this isnt s medical bowl but im curious if anyone experienced this?
Anyone in a similar situation? My group has been going into the office 3-4 days a week since mid-June. Our office is in Houston, which is dealing with a surge of Delta cases. Every week we get multiple emails about someone in the building testing positive for covid. I would like to work from home until cases either decrease or I’m able to get a booster (so maybe 6 weeks). I know my firm would say it’s ok but I think ppl in my group would judge me & it could hurt my image at the firm. Thoughts?
Move over, Deloitte. It's also harder to get into Delta as a flight attendant than to get into Harvard. https://www.inc.com/bill-murphy-jr/delta-air-lines-just-made-a-big-decision-its-flight-attendants-should-be-very-happy.html
Need some advice - I am flying with a puppy in late September and he will be 8 weeks old. I just read deltas pet policy and it says they require pets to be at least 10 weeks. Anyone who travels with pets on delta know if they actually check the age or is this something I can surpass?
Do airlines do status matching? I moved to a new city where Delta does not have a presence - is there a way to “switch” alliance and get a status match with United?
Is delta variant going to slow down hiring?
-Execs worried about attrition after bonuses were cut/reorg/layoffs/work only increasing -Execs want butts in seats in a remote first world. -Execs want to mandate the vaccine. -Execs cut mktg budget but feel an all team on site meeting is needed for “morale” but we can’t be in the same room bc Delta Can’t event wrap my head around all this. I just came here to do marketing. Anyone else feeling like they didn’t sign up for this?
Pfizer: yay! FDA approval Moderna: yay! We’re the best! Mother Nature: hold my beer 🎯 https://www.biospace.com/article/although-delta-is-at-the-top-of-the-list-c-1-2-is-a-new-covid-19-variant-of-concern/
For those that are moms of younger kids, what are you doing / communicating in terms of travel for work? I’m currently on a non-travel project but starting to think about what could happen once I’m done and if I need to communicate anything to leadership in advance. I’d prefer not to travel with the delta variant out there + a baby (11 mos). I used to travel M - Th pre-baby.
Those of you recently flying Delta from JFK internationally - how early did you go to the airport? I have awful experiences with JetBlue from this year, being 3 hours early almost didn’t cut it re. checked bag drop off.
We were just notified that our district is closed tomorrow due to the threat of inclement weather. Y’all keep us Southern folks in your hearts and minds. Im far enough north that I should be fine, but I teach in the Mississippi Delta. It floods there a lot because there’s no place for the water to drain to.
Saturday nights are hard. Instagram reminds me of how friendless I am 😔 At least I have my SO and I can text my very close friends who have moved abroad but it’s not the same as having a best or even close friend. I was supposed to start using bumble bff next month but Delta has made me hesitant to meet new people. Adult friendships are hard.
For a flight NAM - Bangkok, what airline is best (Emirates, Qatar, Ethiad) for status match with US airlines (Delta, United, AA)?
My baby starts daycare in 2 weeks, she is 4 months old. I am starting to get concerned about Covid for her since she can’t get vaccinated yet and I’ve heard the Delta variant hits kids harder. Her daycare is taking all of the necessary steps. Are some people still keeping their kids home from daycare to reduce the risk? Or are you sending your kids and just following daycare protocol?
Have a trip planned to italy in October. Scared the Delta variant may put the travel ban again. My airbnb is refundable until sep 2, should I cancel?
Dumb q- will my status with AA carry over to JetBlue? I know you can now earn points with them
Virgin America is the W of the skies
Hi Fishes.. what do yoiu recommend? Assurance in Deloitte USI or Financial Due Diligence in KPMG Global Services?
If anyone has an extra GPU that they’d like to donate, I’m flying United’s longest flight (UA1) this week and would really appreciate it!
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Need 8k more EQM's to hit AA EP before year end. I'm based out of LA area. Any recommendations for mileage runs?
looking to get 8k Alaska miles ideally from an Elite for $100 so that I can make an award reservation. Or 5k AA for $60
Thoughts on using the $1200 check for a mileage run? These cheap airfare tickets are looking 👌.
Is there a site that’s good for searching for mileage run flights? Where you can view only skyteam airlines, and filter by miles flown. What’s the best tool for that? Thx!
Mileage run booked! To Detroit, to check out the Henry Ford Museum and ford factory tour. Restaurant suggestions anyone?

Hi 🐠, have a trip coming up that I could use some advice for. Have to book a non-refundable economy trip to Osaka, can fly from Philadelphia or New York. United 1k with lots of GPU/miles (continued)
Has anyone recently traveled from India to US via Emirates or Qatar? These are good options for my parents to visit from India but not sure if there are any restrictions to keep in mind. I heard Air India and United have no restrictions although not very convenient for me. Thank you
LOT airlines, Turkish Airlines and Emirates are having wicked sales! Book your vacations ASAP! Using Amex or Chase rewards works with these sales too! #vacationplanning #letsPTO!

Do you guys sometimes think you’re not living life right? Like you’re some type of robot. I think the 40 hour work week + PTO constraints is a bit much.
