Thinking about how much I hate PHL made me think of a question. What airports don't suck? ORD, JFK, LGA are all terrible
Home base is PHL, AA has most of the non-stops but the AA “experience” is leaving a LOT to be desired. Have status with them, no where else. Options?
Looking into a week-long trip to Scotland. Flying from PHL to EDI. Any must-see cities aside from Edinburgh? Group of guys who are big scotch drinkers but appreciate the history and sight-seeing. TIA!
Anyone in PHL want to let me in to one of the lounges as a guest? 😅 lol need some quiet call space and the Admirals club isn’t selling day passes.
Dear PHL travelers. There’s an accident on 95 South that has brought everything to a standstill. Enjoy rebooking!
Any 🐠 based out of PHL and not flying AA? What's the airport like for flying 3/4 weeks/month? Considering a move but can't bring myself to fly AA and give up my DL and SWA status.
I have been AA exc plat for the pst 3 yrs.This pst year I have been traveling to PHL from CHI which is weak in EQMs. I'm at 60k EQM YR to date, any ideas to get 100k EQMs without blowing the bank?!
BOS->EWR is a full-on disaster. >2h delays >60% of the time. Is there a solution? Better luck with Jet Blue over United? If my client is in the middle of NJ, worth trying BOS->PHL?
35F Considering transfer to NYC, originally from PHL and have a more established friend/family network there. Have made friends here but most have moved out of Chicago. Any advice if you’ve lived NYC
Goodness tickets to Costa Rica Liberia airport are so freaking expensive in December, like 1200K economy per person. Any recommendations on how to get there for cheap from NY or DC or PHL?
Working in NYC & PHL this winter, but from GA and AZ. I own no snow apparel essentials! Any recommendations on sleek, work appropriate but warm coats/jackets and maybe ear muffs or gloves?
Anyone ever fly Frontier? Is it that bad? They have nonstop flights from my regional airport to client site, instead of driving 45 min to PHL for AA.
There aren’t enough 🙍🏻♀️ to 🙎🏻♂️ in first/business. But somehow I always get stuck next to the other girl. I was hoping for some good eye candy and conversation from a single 🤵🏻 🐠 on my PHL-SFO fight 😩
Any 🐠 going to be at PHL between 7:30PM and 8:30PM on Thursday (8/30)? I have a 1.5hr layover and I’m going to try to go to the Centurion lounge. I can get 2 people in for free. 25/M
About 20 aircrafts in queue to depart from PHL, no other aircraft can leave the gate. More delays.
Trying to make it home to NY tonight and it’s crazy! Two canceled flights and now flying in to PHL to drive back.
Best airline for weekly PHL-CLT travel? Surprisingly American doesn't have very many nonstop options. May need to suck it up and fly out of EWR instead.
What cities have the best balance between job opportunities and COL? Seems everywhere I look has cons that can’t be overlooked (have looked at Dallas, ATL, Raleigh, Minneapolis, Chicago). GF wants to get out of NYC asap.
I’ve been local for awhile and out of the loop of nyc airport nightmares. What would be easier traffic wise taking an Uber to LGA or JFK, Wednesday afternoon or night?
O'Hare to DCA right now, TSA matching IDs to every boarding pass and checking carry-ons as people board. Never seen this before on a normal domestic - anyone else?
LGA travelers: will I save any money using Uber over a taxi from LGA to financial district? Thursday night ride around 9:30
For those flying out of DFW or connecting through it, the Priority Pass lounge finally opens their permanent location Sep 27. 🙌🏻🍾
So while the construction is going on at EWR, if you have United Global Services and TSA Pre, a GS rep walks you to the front of a very long line of other TSA pre people. That was awkward.
Stupid mistake this morning... saw my American flight was departing out of LGA gate D7, so I went to Term D (even though I know most AA flights are out of B and the rest are C). Will miss my flight :(
LGA rideshare pickup is the definition of a dumpster fire right now. Those local to NYC - how do you deal with this?
ATL fb...has anyone tried to get picked up from the airport in a non UberBlack and their uber driver got a ticket? I totally thought that was all worked out and drivers could pick up from airport.
Placing a togo order from the security line at the ATL airport PF Changs bc you're running late, but don't want to eat crap. #feellikeIwon

Rolled off of a frustrating, less than ideal project today, and came home to find my fiancée had left me a homemade card, new tea mug, chocolate and one of my favorite movies (Cabin in the Woods) ❤️❤️
Helped a close friend through an entire interview process with prep, advice, the whole nine yards. I recently found out that he got the job offer, but from someone else in our friend group, and not from him directly. For some reason I felt pretty bad about that considering he didn’t even let me know after all the help I gave him. Am I being sensitive, or would you be upset about that too. Not sure how to feel about this...
First time not working during vacation since I joined consulting, literally feeling anxiety and don't know what to do with all the free time

Has anyone done private, online tutoring for the little kids?

Any ideas on how that would work? Activities ? Tips, ect?
How does relocating analysts instead of traveling them work? Do they get you an apartment and per diem or some kind of bonus? Or does it completely depend on the project?
Happy Saturday y'all! I just want to say this community rocks and keeps me sane in this sometimes toxic culture we know of as consulting. Cheers!!
I have a 16-month-old son and not a single mom friend. It feels so pathetic to write that. I'd love to find other moms so my kid can have playdates, but also so I can have someone to talk to, commiserate with, give advice, etc. Because of COVID, there isn't much opportunity to interact with other parents at daycare dropoff, and with classes and playgroups scarce, I'm not sure what else to do. Any tips or success stories? Or anyone in Brooklyn want to be friends?
