I fly aa

I fly AA out of Chicago... flew United as a kid growing up in the area but my first consulting project flew AA so I just stuck with it. It's been good for me (have not yet had a client location without a non-stop flight) and CX/JL are nice international partners to have. Delta is probably more difficult as I imagine you'll have to connect through DTW/MSP/ATL a lot but I'm not familiar with the available routes

UA except for DTW

AA flyer here - always able to get good flights to West Coast. And as DD mentioned, direct Cathay flights are amazing

Fuck united

Agreed with the above. I fly AA out of Chicago and particularly like the OneWorld options when flying international for vacation: British Airways, Cathay, JAL, Qatar, Air Berlin, Iberia, and Finnair. Technically Royal Jordanian flies too, but I don't consider that a viable option for any of my routes.

AA out of Chicago. I tried to stay loyal to Delta but there's almost no direct flights out of here with them.

Same. I am going to be platinum AA again, will be platinum Delta thanks to corporate match, not sure I would hit top tier of either. United has the best options SFO > ORD on Thursday but I just leave a little earlier for AA or take the Wed night red-eye home (and come in Sunday instead of Monday morning).

@P1 I suspect we are frequently on the same flight...wave hi next time! I'll be the disgruntled consultant with a venti coffee in hand and a Tumi suitcase

like

AA market share at ORD is 40% (UA at 44%) so you're going to have a lot less flexibility for DL flights, which isn't even the third-largest carrier at the airport (which I believe is Spirit)

like

If you fly the 3:45 SFO>ORD on Thursdays that stops at Sky Harbor, you've likely seen me. Team B&R though...And GoRuck. Will be Delta out of MKE the next few weeks to do the corp. challenge, I'm midway between ORD/MKE, a little closer to the latter actually.

like

DD - cool stats. Source? Is that gates, dollars, flights, pax, pax-miles?

like

I fly delta including fligts where united is the clear winner

UA or AA. Can't do D.

Chicago you can do any of the 3 depending on preference...

Sure, outgoing that's true. Incoming it's not.

Aa exclusively

@BCG2 good question! The article I saw didn't cite a source so I went over to the BTS stats page and played around a bit. The main difficulty here is sussing out which carrier some of the regional carriers like SkyWest and ExpressJet are flying for (11% combined pax share). If I make the assumption that they mirror the mainline UA/DL split (10:1), then we get the following (pax, flights, pax-miles as a percentage of all domestic carriers at ORD): UA: 41%, 39%, 44% AA: 36%, 37%, 37% DL: 4%, 4%, 3% Spirit: 5%, 3%, 6%

👏 👏 👏 cool. Pretty similar mix of flights it seems. Longer hops, bigger planes from UA maybe driven by transcon/transatlantic. Shorter shops from DL driven by freq of ORD-ATL.

I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?

Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
