$5/month subscription to expert flyer is the best way to get actual inventory info if you fly standby often. Otherwise call DL and you might get lucky with a good agent who can interpret the situation well for you

Unassigned seats. Not everyone with a ticket has a seat yet. Very common, especially now with Basic Economy where there is no advanced seat assignment

Would appreciate advice for next career steps. Currently in Risk&Reg advisory and looking to switch to Strategy consulting (at PwC/Big 4). From what I've read, the transition seems unlikely because of little work overlap and the preference for top MBAs. It seems like the most realistic ways forward are 1) Get MBA first then request to transfer groups, or 2) Leave the firm for Strategy experience elsewhere and get back into Big 4 eventually. Has anyone made a similar move into Strategy?
