Boarded my plane, then had to get off due to "technical issues". Now my flight is delayed over 6 hours. What is reasonable to request from United for this? Never had to do this

It’s United. Should be happy you didn’t die.

But if it’s actually mechanical, and if you have status, you should be able to get points or travel vouchers. They should also switch you to a different flight or provide food vouchers/hotel if it’s an overnight delay

funny

Wow, sorry to hear that. I’d say 15-30K miles, based on how high your status is. Maintaining the plane is 100% the airline’s responsibility.

And if you have an official “we are delayed due to ...” on the United app, would take a screenshot and keep. UA won’t give miles if weather or ATC, so they may try to claim that ... document & get evidence now!

I’ve realized that all of my male friends that make $400,000 or more annually without debt have qualities that are almost antithetical to what I think many Black women are looking for. They’re engineers, scientists, and physicians. They invest aggressively, they work on weekends, they don’t drink much, don’t party, don’t brunch, don’t go out much, really only travel once a year, dress conservatively. They’ll have more in common with Mark Zuckerberg’s vibe (Black or White)

He used to do that at home too but very limited but now he dies it all the time. He is good with following directions, citing rhymes, counting till 20, alphabets etc. (1/2)

I’m trying to decide between two offers by the end of this week and am having a lot of trouble making a decision. One is with Guidehouse, $122K base, senior consultant title, not sure on the bonus, and it’s focused on sustainability strategy and product management. The other is with Kearney, $110 base + 20-25% bonus in the digital transformation practice. I really want to specialize my career on sustainability and tech, but I also know working at Kearney could be life changing in the long run.
