I called today UK visa office, London. They said Processing time has been increased from 3 weeks to 6 weeks, due to prioritization of Processing of visa application of Ukraine's citizens.

I don't believe this. The website says 3 weeks.

I’ve been hearing 6+ weeks for turn around after biometrics are submitted

VFS team said 3 weeks to me when I was applying for biometric on 31st March. May be now they are suggesting for 6 weeks.

Completed biometric on 31st March. Still waiting for decision.

I have the Amex Bonvoy card ($95 annual fee) and am thinking of canceling it. Not really sure if it's worth keeping it considering how little the Marriott points are worth.
One downside I see is that I have had this card since '97 (my first card) and I read that credit score considers average age of cards so am concerned that might take a hit. Thoughts on canceling?
Secondly, what are the best cashback cards nowadays if I don't want to pay an annual fee?
TIA!

I am facing issues regarding launchpad.
1. In the experience section, I am not able to write the landline contact number as it asks for a 10 digit number and the landline number with code is more than that 10 digits. 

2. Also, my first 2 companies have stopped their operations in the Noida location, so can i write their head office location and its contact number. 

3. In the education section, it just asked for the graduation details, no details were asked for 10th and 12th.
