Delta flight from IAH yo LGA is delayed three hours... Wtf is going on? Weather is fine here and only 40% chance if scattered showers in NYC. Is this an ask for miles situation? 😭
Currently Gold on United. Will be about 7,700 PQM short of Platnium as of ~Dec 10 (when my last planned work flight is). Worth doing a mileage run to get Platnium? Cheapest ways to do it? Based at IAH
Terminal E at IAH is a madhouse this morning for precheck. Those who get to airport 15 mins before boarding might not make it lol. Clear is short tho.
Hey FB please help, for IAH should I enter terminal D and train train to E ? security looks really bad at E
Just hit 1k and new to RPUs. I have a family trip coming up for Christmas 21-29 from Iah to lga. Is it worth it to use it on this trip or hope for an upgrade ?
Can you walk from terminal A to terminal E at IAH or do you need to take the train? Meeting people arriving at different gates so I want to walk (I assume it takes 30 mins at least from end to end?).
I need to stay next to IAH from 10pm-8am a couple weeks from now, what's a good hotel to book? Ideally with airport shuttle, gym, new & nice rooms?
Does Centurion Lounge access justify the Amex Platinum fee? 80% of foreseeable travel will be through IAH, DFW, and LAS.
How bad is IAH terminal E security before 5am? Online says pre check lane doesn't open til 5. Trying to time a 5:25 flight.
Anyone else stuck in this 5+ hour delay from IAH to LGA? Just wanna get hoooome. What is happening in NY?
Hi 🐠! First time on a travel project since the government shutdown. Have a 8am flight out of IAH tomorrow. Heard I have to be there 3 hours early (even with precheck). Is that right?
Houston 🐠 IAH terminal E has the k9 at security point this morning. Everyone is going thru lanes together.
They keep calling for someone who sounds like "Mark Wahlberg" at IAH. It could be "Warburg" but I'm still hoping.
Classic IAH to ORD delays, able to make a prior flight due to it being delayed. Middle row back, but at least I save myself 3 hours of loitering. Little wins
Is Delta really that much better than UA or am I stuck in a "grass is greener" mentality? Home airport is IAH and not sure it's worth it to switch (can challenge for Platinum)
After 2yrs I think I’m finally starting to figure out consulting! A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor!
Thoughts on the new motorized security checkpoints at LGA for luggage? Doesn’t seem to be anymore efficient
People familiar with DFW airport: if I have a boarding pass for a non-American flight out of Terminal E, can I still go through security via Terminal D? Thanks.
Anybody else stuck @ CLT? Apparently T-storms got planes delayed 50 minutes waiting to get to the gate... ⌚️💺
Thinking of moving from NYC to Atlanta as we’re having more kids than I want to squeeze in my Brooklyn apartment. What do I need to know and where do the creatives live in ATL?
Somebody just told me it’s weird to call a woman “ma’am”... is that a Northern thing? I grew up in FL and live in ATL now, and I’ve always thought it was normal/polite. Maybe it’s a southern thing?
Good music at JFK Sky Club... not sure if they’re playing different music or if it’s usually just too busy to hear it

Anyone working out in San Diego? I will be there for the next few months, looking for a few weekday drink peeps.
I have COVID. Had it for a week and a half. I’m doing tax returns in bed. I can’t tell if I don’t feel well because of the virus or because I’m doing tax returns. 🤢
So what agencies are people really enjoying working at these days? A year ago the 72 nyc people were raving about their culture all over FB, is that still the case? Any other shops getting it right?
Recently was considering a role with Accenture Strategy and realized that the AS bowl is pretty empty. So here’s my plug for all the AS people to join it so that everyone can find you. 🙂
CPB London just lost Infiniti... Redundancies incoming and looking like a lot of them. Anyone hiring creative teams in London?
I think I am pregnant with baby number #3. Welcome, not avoided, but not exactly planned. My older kids would be 3 and 2 when this one arrives. Feeling overwhelmed.
Should I choose to go into an industry that is “perfect for my background” or into an industry that I am interested in? My background is healthcare/life science but interested in commercial banking. Compensation and job security are my top priorities.
I am interviewing with Morgan Stanley for a reit analyst position. Anyone got any tips or advice other than generic behavioral questions?
This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.

Thinking about pursuing a part-time MBA in fall 2021. Does Big 4 or MBB do full-time recruiting for part-time students in general (I know schools have their own policies)? Has anyone been able to laterally transfer as a part-time MBA grad?
This year I left PwC for a smaller firm to see if I would enjoy tax if I had work life balance. I am still bored out of my mind and do not enjoy the work. I recently found out I was pregnant.....
