Philly? Gross 🤢

like

@D1 sounds like you’ve never been. Philly has amazing food and bars. You’re smoking drugs too much. @OP PHL is an American Airlines hub. I actually visit Philly a lot and the reality is I see more direct flights with AA than Delta or anything else.

Southwest is the only answer. Get that companion pass.

I did that on AA for 2 years. It’s got the best schedule. But I fully concur with D1. Philly is terrible.

I worked in Philly 1.5 years. Second vote for “terrible”

BCG - Benefits depend on how you use your miles. If you prefer to fly domestic, SW is the way to go. I use my miles for flights to EU/APAC, which makes SW a non-starter

like

Schedule options are AA > UA >> SW. Could probably make platinum with AA by EOY, But just barely. Already did a challenge with them 3 years ago. What do you guys think is the best option? Considering trying to see what United might match me to with the Alaska status

Fellow Chicagoan. Go with American. Hub to hub with Philly is super convenient

SWA or AA. SWA has stupid good benefits

Thanks for the input y’all. For a bit more perspective, weekly schedule would be. AA: 7:20am out, 5:50pm back SW: 6am out, 7:50pm back

Someone who tends to make sexist remarks (without realizing that they are sexist) used an analogy in a client meeting - statistics are like a mini skirt. They reveal a lot but hide the crucial things. Hopefully anyone reading this knows why this is problematic. I’m keen on raising an objection but unsure how. I want to come from a place of building awareness. Any tips?

Advice needed: I’ve been in a long distance relationship for a while. Things are generally going well but when it comes to traveling to see each other I’m always the one making more of the effort to go to him. I understand his job isn’t as flexible but even when it was during Covid he had an excuse and I would be the one going to see him and spending weeks leaving behind my day to day to spend time with him. Am I wrong for wanting more effort and flexibility on his end?
