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).
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?
New United status qualifying rules for 2020. It’s by dollars not miles... should really benefit most consultants given the high price of business trip airfare. Bottom line.. spend $24k to get 1K https://mileageplusupdates.com/mileageplus/english/qualification
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.
I have 30k United miles expiring in September. What’s the easiest and cheapest way to extend their validity?
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
Will likely end the year with 190k pqm and $25k spend on United... Is there even a tiny chance of making global services?
I’m 4,613 PQM away from United 1K and am wondering if it’s worth the ~$900 I’d have to spend. My deciding factor is the upgrade for international flights. Any insight into how these are used?
How hard it is to break into Tokyo? I want to relocate from South America but having no sucess in contating agencies
Invested 200k into TSLA @ ~200, sold at 450. Why did this happen to me? I’ve made my mistakes, I’ve got nowhere to run, the night goes on...
It looks like I (unexpectedly) may be inheriting a decent size (for me) amount of money - potentially up to $700k. I’m thankful, but stressed - because the market is so high. Wait it out?
Wow. Oliver Wyman Plans to Recruit Qualified Refugees Arriving in Europe http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/09/09/oliver-wyman-idUSnBw096712a+100+BSW20150909
New M just back from maternity. Is it acceptable to have no project lined up for next week? Proposed for one should sell end Jan. May get billable hours on account to bridge gap. How many to ask for?

Thoughts on giving yourself a promotion to a CD when you start freelancing if you where long due for a promotion anyway?
Assuming things go back to normal in FY22 (ie after this upcoming year), do you think we will adjust back to our old cohort base (pre-corona)?
Interviewing for jobs - go through multiple rounds and then found out you were cut Thoughts on why companies won’t respond to an ask for feedback post interview?
How can EY people use Bravo awards to get Apple products (e.g. iPad)?? Just looking at rewards center and don't see Apple or others that sell the Apple like BestBuy etc. Extremely frustrating.
Real Estate - if prices go down as expected, are new builds, existing inventory (spec homes), and resells all impacted the same way or are there notable differences in how each is impacted?
Has anyone here used the Bowflex Max Total trainer? Worth the price? What was your experience? Any better/cheaper comparable options? I’m looking for a good at-home cardio workout since I don’t see myself going back to the gym for a long time after covid. I have bad knees so running isn’t an option, but really need to start losing some of this covid poundage 😅 TIA!
I have a creative Director who has never done a single website design, not even a landing page, getting visibly distraught when I try to explain how certain things need to be in order to pass ADA.
For those of you who left consulting, is the LGBTQ climate better or worse (and what industry are you in)?
