Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!
If I'm Delta Platinum, will I get any sort of status match from American? Usual Thursday flight got eliminated
Pwc folks, do I get a min of silver status with United Airlines? If yes, how do I apply for it?
Dilemma - To travel or not to travel. That is the question. Delta surge. Is it a good time to look for remote or 50% travel opportunities? What’s your take?
Anyone else freaking out about Delta? My baby is 6 months and starts daycare on Monday. I feel like I’m sending my kid into harms way (I can’t afford a nanny).
I have a feeling that with the delta variant, schools may do the same as last year and make classes remote after thanksgiving so students aren’t going back and forth from home to school. Thoughts?
Worth going for delta platinum Medalian after gold .. vs starting routes on AA to make status?
Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Any advice out there from points pros that combined finances after marriage?
Do systemwide upgrades work on Finnair? If I have a connection does it take 2 upgrades or just 1?
As delta becomes the dominant variant and is known to be as transmissible by both the vaccinated and non-vaccinated, can we really continue to blame the non-vaccinated anymore for the spread? If so, why?
Any thoughts or news about companies reconsidering reopening with the rise of the Delta Variant. This rent free life is hard to give up
Does delta bump your status down one level even if you don't re-qualify? I just got gold status (made platinum last year) but haven't met the requirements yet
Does anyone know if I have a paid membership to United Club lounges, can I access Marahaba lounges at DXB? Traveling on emirates, status on UA.....
Anyone flown NYC-BOM sector on Air China? How is it considering the layover is just 1 hour at PEK?
Delta. Hold down the power button for 3 seconds until the system shuts down. Wait 10 seconds, then turn the system on.
If we’re calling this a war, know your part. Medical staff are the front line, the grunts, the ones pulling long shifts and facing death head on. Everyone else is in the rear supporting what they need
Switching from consulting to product managment role. Any recs for prep (books, online courses, etc.)? Thank you!!! 😊😊
Have an interview for a role with EY's human capital consulting group tomorrow. Any opinions on the practice?
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
Just started investments a month ago, majority in VOO. Have some funds (<5K) in few ETFs where I noticed (last night) the expense ratio is .40, .50, .20, .10 vs compared to VOO’s .03. Thoughts on selling those with higher expense ratio now? ( don’t have a lot of profit or loss at this point as it’s been just a month).
I am on H1b visa and so is my wife. My visa stamp is expired, and if I go on H4 Ead and want to visit my country, how does coming back to US works? Need stamping or something with Ead?
XPost: How do you appease the client when they call and ask when their tax returns are done and they want them done now but they are further down the queue of returns because they submitted their PBCs later than other clients who submitted their source docs on time?
I think people who don’t get the vaccine out of choice are dumb. Is anyone in the medical community saying to not get the vaccine?
Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...
I get more nervous in client meetings when my Director or Manager are present, than if meeting directly with the client 😳
I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight. It looks like it’s best to use them by booking travel through Amex but I’m confused about the bit that says I’ll get a statement credit when I pay with points. Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?
