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? 🤔
I'm excited to announce that I've moved up from United Airlines Group 4 to Group 2 as Silver Premier. I want to thank everyone that helped out along the way and I look forward to making a difference!
Guy at the bar just called global services and got a first class upgrade for an army captain also sitting at the bar (who was put on a 14 hour delayed flight).
Has anyone flew recently? I am flying to Montana on Friday and want to know if there will be any surprises. (FYI.. flying United)
I miss fly days so much that I’ll fly United, non-status, no seat assignment, with a bag to check
Just had a dream that my plane crashed and instead of suing I asked for global services for lifetime. I think it’s time I leave this bowl until I become rational again
(Not that it matters for the time being, but...) What are people’s preferred airlines? I mostly fly United but may switch to American since I moved closer to a hub. Thoughts?
4500 miles short of making it to United gold. Should I just buy the miles to make it by end of year?
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!
Favourite in-flight movie finds? Flying United Sunday flights pretty frequently for the next few weeks.
Anyone flying United now until Jan 31? I have a ton of points plus expiring and want the upgrades to be used. Completely free. DM me your last name and confirmation number. International and dome
United global services - anyone know what the ROM spend is to qualify this year? Just over 40k now and can prob rack up 20k+ in the next month so weighing if I go status or better schedule flights
So I have a flight from A to C but layover at B with United airlines. If I skip the flight from B to C, will United cancel all my reservations (not only this one reservation)?
United Platinum Upgrades: Flying Denver to Boston and I’m typically ~20-30 on the upgrade list. What gives? Is it always this impossible to get upgraded? I matched plat from Delta when I moved to Den.
Have to take client call at EWR. I’m United Global Services, have Priority Pass, and a United Transcon First Class ticket. Where’s best place to take with lounge access, etc.? Thanks Fish.
Anyone get a partial discount on the United Club Card annual fee? Renewal just came up, and wouldn't mind paying even though I'm not flying but it looks like almost all clubs are closed.
Just got confirmed renewal of my United 1K status despite not meeting targets by emailing in my baby’s birth certificate from taking mat leave! I’m shocked and appreciative!
United just extended my global services status to next year. Appreciate the effort from them, bit I just don’t think I will fly anymore (unless it’s for vacation next year)...
Anybody willing to sell united miles? Looking for 180k. Please bame your price here and I’ll dm you. Need urgently
Flight got canceled earlier this evening because of a mechanical issue. United Gold (with 16k spend, so I feel like I have a case for 1k), how many miles should I ask for? And how (email, phone call)?
United Global Services officially owns me now. Got me to the plane when my inbound flight landed after the door was closed on connection.
How can I get on upgrade list for a domestic award ticket? Plenty of open seats and im United Gold but not on the list.
No wonder why Delta made it to the top. While flying United due to it being hub for airport closer to home. I always could clearly see the difference in the service between United & Delta! https://apple.news/AxKRU0FSXQqea7QbpQnvX-g
my delta flight was delayed so I rebooked a connecting flight..as a silver I've never gotten upgraded (Thursday..in/out of msp) but delta must've had an IT glitch. best. flight. ever.
Delta and united no longer service my usual flights starting next week. Now I have to switch over the dark side #AA. Any tips?
I'm a United person but got a fast track for platinum on delta so I was thinking of switching. Anyone have some pros and cons of united vs delta?
Booked on JetBlue direct (cancelled), got Delta connection (cancelled), moved to American tomorrow morning (cancelled), got American connection (cancelled), now United tomorrow late morning. #lovelife
The Delta fast track promo to status expired did I just miss it? It was 4 8 16 one ways for silver gold platinum. I guess they really were giving it away
Delta broke my checked in luggage wheel and is reimbursing me around $150. What should I get? Domestic carry-on mostly.
7 am flight... After all the reschedules is now at 1:40 am the next freaking day!! I could've walked faster... Thanks Delta 😞😞😞😞
Flying out of a Delta hub city (MSP) for the first time. I guess my platinum status means nothing in a hub city based on being 55 on the upgrade list. Oh well!
Someone on a United flight announced "Thank you for flying Delta" 😂😂😂 We're not the only ones confused with what flights we take!
JetBlue! I love you too much! Not only your wifi is free but it also works 😊 if you get yourself into star alliance I'll marry you!
How do you improve yourself (e.g. studying for GMAT, thinking about career growth) without beating yourself up along the way or constantly comparing yourself to others who have achieved their goals?
What happens to my 401k and pwc wealth builder when I leave? At pwc for 9 years and fully vested. Do I lose anything?
Can vlogging my day be against firm rules? I’m pretty depressed with quarantine and wfh, and found that vlogging is helping me stay accountable and not feel like the days are passing by too fast. I’ve just been keeping them on my phone, but think it could be a fun project for my creative side to edit them together with music, etc. Thinking of publishing to YouTube for storage reasons, but you have to publish publicly to be able to find what you published.
Hi ladies, I’ve never been in a relationship before and need serious advice. How do you know if you are ready to be gf/bf? Also what is the process of getting to know someone like? How does it work?
Starting with one of the big4 in Chicago as an analytics manager, 5 YOE at 150k base. Graduate engg degree i.e. non MBA/non CS. Did I get low balled?
Anyone out there use a travel tote that converts to backpack? Any brand recommendations? Don’t wanna give up the tote look but would like the backpack for travel days
What is the worst job anyone has jumped to from B4? I can’t imagine anything would be worse hours wise but I see people boomerang so I wonder if there are some stories out there.
A friend is expecting her first. She’s been getting really sick in her 1st trimester. What would you put in a care pack? Only thing helping her is non-activity and food doesn’t stay down well
Considering companies are cutting raises and bonuses, have any of you found new jobs that are giving a pretty considerable % increase? Or is the job search coming up low on salary offerings too?
Moving from a fellow big 4 to EY TAS service line. How much would be fair to ask for a Data Analytics Manager role in a tier 1 city?
I'm a dude. I have a buddy visiting from out of town and gonna bring him as guest to the holiday party. Is that weird?
Hi folks.. just wanted some guidance on 401k vs 401k Roth.. i see myself being in US only for the next 5 years.. is 401k worth it.. my new gives 167% match on 401k contribution. If its worth it, is it better to go for traditional 401k vs 401k roth?
How’s everyone feeling about vacation now? My friends and I are planing a week long trip to Cali for Fourth of July, but Cali isn’t doing so well right now... (tho we are hiking in national parks most days and only surfing in San Diego for one day) on the other hand I really need a vacation - being cooped up in my NYC apartment working non stop for months has made me kinda insane :(
Company holiday party tonight and people have checked out & started drinking by early afternoon 🙄 this should be fun to watch ....
