In an alternate universe, we’d all be at the airport lounge drinking our weekly stress away while eagerly waiting to go home. Life is good. Unless you’re flying United - you’re minutes away from being told your flight is delayed because there is one cloud in the sky.

Sitting at the hotel bar. Over hearing a boomer flash his United gold and Marriott platinum status to a millennial women. Debating if I should call his status and raise him 1k and ambassador elite? 🤔

Booked flights for rest of the year and realized I’d be 484 PQM or 1.5 PQS short of United 1K. Changed one set of flights from one to two stops and still 38 PQM or 0.5 PQS short🤦‍♂️ Hacks? Thanks!
