Best way to earn airlines status without flying anymore? Ex consultant here. Lyft with delta points?

Honest question: as hard as it is to earn status through any means, why do you care if you’re not flying much (or at all)?

Agree with this. OP may be better off with a CC that gives lounge access ? Or paying for speedy security that some of the larger airports offer

Lyft will get you Delta miles but not the MQMs you need for status

American just switched to Loyalty Points, so their status is purely based on spend if you have an American CC

If targeting American, you can get dual accrual with Hyatt so Hyatt spend counts as Loyalty Points and v.v.

Time to replace my 12+ year old Travelpro bags. They've held up well for multiple international moves and regular travel but are having some problems now.

What are some brands or specific bags to consider? I'd prefer light, soft cases. Bonus points if the bag doesn't look too expensive. I'm small, female, and often travel alone. Don't want to be a target when I'm on the road.

In short: My brother is a super low key guy w/o a ton of financial means and has had a super tough year (close friend suicide, father in-law passing unexpectedly). So, I am really hoping to take him overseas in Polaris.

Happy to fly in/out of literally anywhere (can reposition once abroad) if I can guarantee confirmed space. Also flexible on dates from Sept through EOY.

Anything?! Thanks.

I'm the sole marketing coordinator for a local yet successful business as of March 1. My boss is covering hotel/flights for just me & him to attend a 1.5 day trade show cross-country in May.

I've been excited for a local digital marketing conference in 2 weeks... & learned it's $250/person. For the 1st time I can afford that, but I'm tempted to ask him to cover me bc it's for work? Or do I pay it so I don't burn bridges with what he comps? How would I ask? This biz's industry is not marketing.
