Planning to fly parents from India DEL to US EWR in 2 weeks (Dec). Odds of getting upgraded to business with United plus points? Any experience would be helpful to hear about. If low odds, would rather book them in business instead of trying our luck.. Thanks!!
Is United Silver premier worth it? I never have enough spend to be anything above basic but I did a few trips this year and I am 875 PQP and 2 PQF short to silver premier. I have a lot of what ifs in terms of travel next year but thought it would be good to get. I may do a quick trip to lax or phx next month to get me there that will cost about $900-$1100. Ideally I would have liked to visit a friend for a weekend but everyone else is traveling. Thoughts?I’m based near EWR
I’m on this United flight which is sitting duck at EWR because of the rains. The flight attendant tells me I can’t use my laptop while we are just sitting on the runway with no signs of movement and the captain already said they will announce when they hear more .
Is this some protocol ? Or is this guy just being an idiot?In my years of flying this has never happened especially when the delay is indefinite.
Hi, EWR airport drop from CT. Options needed.
I used Wisla in the past but seems that they are not operating shuttles now.
Thanks and warm regards
I was at EWR and the cashier got mad at me for not tipping. It was a self service store. WTF is going on! Tipping expectations are getting out of control.

TSA is a joke at EWR. 🤯
Confused about the polices around lounge access for Lufthansa. Can Star Gold member bring a travel partner to the lounges at EWR and FRA for free?
Pay $330 extra to upgrade to United lie flat business? Plane is 777-200, EWR-LAX. Flight is late evening but not a red eye.
Flying United EWR-PTY Panama City on a 737-900 where I can pay to upgrade to business for $189 or $273. Business is 2-2 on this aircraft, flight is ~5 hours and I am premier silver. Is it worth paying cash for the upgrade? This would be a solo birthday trip for myself.
Anyone traveled EWR to Mumbai recently on Air India? How bad was it? I keep on hearing horror stories so hesitant to book. But it's the only direct option right now so in a pickle.
TL;DR: what new credit card should I get?
I’m about to move from Chicago->SF and expect to incur a lot of moving expenses and want to take advantage of getting a sign on bonus.
I currently have: Amex Gold, Apple Card, BofA Travel Rewards with most expenses going on Amex and have a 750+ credit score per credit karma
I fly United and stay in Marriotts. Is United card a waste, even if flying SFO->EWR frequently? I know people love CSR but the yearly fee…
Does United EWR to LAX flight segment still have free food for Economy Plus seating? I remember since it is transcontinental flight it use to have? Not sure if it changed during covid.
Are there any sleeping pods at EWR? My in-laws have a long layover after an international flight and would like tp rest somewhere in the airport.
Just moved and now I’m equidistant between EWR and LGA. Which airport do I prefer if flights are the same and Ubers are expensable?
Tickets to India are ridiculously expensive right now. Anyone willing to share tips/hacks/deals they have been able to find? Looking to travel EWR to BOM.
What’s the best way to get from Brooklyn to EWR during the work week? Found a cheap flight that I couldn’t pass up 😬
What’s the easiest way to get to EWR airport during rush hour? Coming from Williamsburg and got badly stuck in traffic before Holland Tunnel. Think Uber might not be the best option. Thinking of taking the bus from Grand Central
FYI, if you’re flying to Hawaii on United in June, they cancelled all their east coast flights to Hawaii from EWR and IAD. UA never told me about this, I found out on a travel blog.
Can some one share eid prayer timings for places in and around Newark. I fly in to EWR at 9am, and would wanna find a prayer around 9.30/10am around the area.
Did EWR pull out of priority pass? Seems like there are no more lounges listed at the airport. Kinda disappointed with the sapphire reserve lounge access…
Please don’t make fun of me for asking this but is it safe to go to NJ performing arts center in Newark. There’s a Whitney Cummings show that I want to go see, and maybe grab a bite later. But I am going alone (5’3, 30 F) and I have never been to Newark before (except EWR) so I am rather scared if I should get tickets. I have only ever heard horrible things about the place like Chicago south side.
just another complaint about EWR: Terminal B international gates specifically.
The way the walkway goes around the whole outside of the sub-terminal meant that half my flight boarded, and then the gate had to be closed so a different flight could disembark, walking between us and the plane. 20 minutes later we could finish boarding.
Who designed this? Who scheduled it? Didn't seem like there were any delays at the time, everything was functioning "as intended".
lga and ewr vibes right now
Is it worth using a one-time pass at the United Club at EWR? How are the clubs like there nowadays? Assume Terminal C.

I have a 5am flight from Newark. I get done with an event in the city ~11pm. I am thinking of just going to the airport and crashing there for the night. Any one has any experience with it? Is it safe? I know the homeless situation at LGA is bad, is it the same/ better at Ewr.
Has united shut down the direct EWR to BOM/DEL flights due to Ukraine/Russia situation right now? I was looking for tickets in April and see only Lufthansa and Swiss flights now.
Just found out United only serves Kosher meals on their EWR-BOM route.
Has anyone successfully ordered an Indian vegetarian meal recently?
Planning a trip to London & Lisbon from EWR. I plan on using United excursionist perk so it will be 60k miles + $150ish in fees for both cities. However, I saw a TAP Portugal flight and both cities will cost me $500 RT. I’m thinking it’s better to go with TAP and save my United miles. Thoughts?
Fastest way to get to JFK from EWR?
Haven’t traveled since 2020, completely forgot the basics; is there anyway to get two checked bags for free on United EWR-DEL?

Is robinhood the only brokerage firm that lets you auto invest in etfs and shares? I have been doing dca in etfs and shares via robinhood becuase all other brokers make you do mfs, not shares or etfs. Given their earnings im not sure how long will they be around. Looking for options to not move to mfs for auto investing in individual brokerage.

I recently interviewed for AC position in Lilly India and got an offer of 21L CTC (fixed~18). I had 2 questions which I need help with:
1. Is it at par with what the ACs at Lilly get/what the other candidates have been offered?
2. I have heard that there has been a lot of attrition in their SFO team of late due to montonous work, lack of growth and decreasing variable payouts and hikes? Not sure if it's true, but their entire SFO leadership has switched to other firms within 2-3months

Hi everyone! I’m switching internally to my company’s LA office (from Boston). I only need to be in the office 1 or 2x per week and am toying around with the idea of living in San Diego and commuting up that one day. It’s likely be a 2.5hr drive or so each way, which seems like a lot. Can anyone speak to whether or not I’d go insane with that setup or if there are ways to make it more tolerable? I just have more family / friends in SD and would prefer to live there if possible :) thank you!!

Our district is so lax on the students this year. With tech issues and distance learning days, we’ve gone from accommodating to enabling real quick. No penalties for late work, taking excuses for attendance, lower academic and behavioral standards... We were beginning to make so much progress on transforming our school culture, but this year is erasing that and then some. Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?
