I wish, not even an insignificant discount

Unfortunately status doesn't mean anything when it comes to pricing out fares. Would be a nice perk though

^ Agree K1. I was thinking more along the lines of buying a standby ticket and get the seat due to status (read somewhere that standby tickets should be cheaper)

Status can help you get access to sold out fares and certain award fare classes. But not discounted fares.

Usually you can only buy standby tickets if you or someone in your immediate family works for the airline. If not, everyone would buy standby and revenue management goes out the window.

26 M, living with parents. Does anyone else have an overly intense mom or dad? How do you manage? Whenever I want to travel my mom wants to tag along and if I hint that I want to go alone or with GF she throws shade and comments that make me feel bad for not wanting to take her. There are other things like 1k questions when I go out, talking bad about any girl I am dating, constant nagging, etc. I lived alone for 5 yrs before moving back 2 yrs ago, not sure how much longer I or gf can take...

For those fully remote but have team/company offsites for in-person collaboration, do you require everyone to be at the offsite, or are there options to still dial-in remotely? Our team isn’t really accommodating dial-ins because of “logistics” – proper conferencing/equipment, etc and I think it excludes people who can’t always travel cross country. But wanted to hear how other companies do it.
