Just started at a new small agency. I feel so out of place. People literally sit to eat lunch at the other side of the table from me and are so standoffish. I uprooted my whole life left my best friends to work here and am now regretting it. I’m stuck in a year lease and have to stay here a year otherwise I have to pay back moving expenses. Has this happened to you? How did you make it work? I’m so miserable and know I need to move back to where I was before…

Hey YC bowl, need my weekly talk down from going to law school. Inevitably facing yet another week of mostly enjoying what I do while somewhat tolerating certain aspects of consulting. Not totally unfulfilled not totally unhappy. Decent WLB. Just cannot shake this law school bug. Haven’t been able to for years. Sort of encroaching a point where I’m not sure I’m even headed in my career in terms of developing hard transferable skills. For example, I feel like I don’t have an actual vocation. Lol
Any startup horror stories?

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