Why do you say delta platinum means nothing?

like

I fly mostly to major city centers and find myself in a queue of 50 that also have priority and I rarely see upgrades (except comfort middle seat).

I was platinum on delta and actually switched to American. At the end of the day it's your call! There's not many options other than delta in Atlanta

Delta Platinum out of MSP. I feel your pain. I can’t remember the last time I saw a flight under $500.

🐠 From Europe here. From what I read in the posts, I have the doubt about the prestige in the CV that those strategy firms that are not MBB (OW, ADL, RB,...) have in the US. Sometimes it seems that an advisory team from a B4 has more prestige than a T2 strategy firm. Is this correct in the United States? In Europe it is not.

Thinking of getting a personal AMEX gold for the rewards and intro points. As the spending has to be significant to qualify for the 20,000 intro points and for it to make sense in general, has anyone else found that their credit score went down due to using AMEX as main spending card? I don’t really need a credit card per se and I just really wanna be able to accumulate points on my spending that I can use as miles/rewards… however not at the expense of my credit score!

I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?
