Any restrictions on baggage allowance if you book your ticket with reward miles for American ? I am platinum. Just learnt last week that upgrade was not possible because I booked through points.

No, you just can't get free upgrades like you would on a revenue ticket unless you're EP. Standard baggage rules apply so checked bag fee waived for 2 bags.

Was laid off from D recently and have been interviewing primarily for strategy roles. Curious for any advice converting in final rounds. I have been through several at this point and not gotten the offer. Received very positive feedback from the teams about my performance but in each case they said it was very competitive and ended up going with someone with slightly more direct experience. Tough to go through several 6+ week multi round processes and not convert. Any help or advice appreciated!

It has impacted my romantic relationships and causes constant anxiety at work because I feel like a helpless child inside, lack confidence and self worth and fear failure. Appreciate any EMDR experiences.
