Checked bags should work on United metal regardless of destination. Basic economy is still basic economy as far as I am aware. You should get Group 2 boarding with it

https://thepointsguy.com/guide/united-explorer-vs-united-club/amp/

If you have the card it overrides basic economy and you can still get those 2 checked bags for free. You get priority boarding with the United club card. And no complimentary upgrade eligibility even with United Club

I hear salesforce is already slashing spending, cutting travel, etc. would value any views especially from the inside.

Made it to the Technical Assessment portion of the interview process. Need to take brand elements and create an ad using photos, fonts, logos, etc. Seems super easy and there’s not much actual designing involved. But assuming it’s supposed to be and they just want to see I can follow the brand guidelines. They’ve seen plenty of my actual design work and we’ve discussed what I’ve done in my career. I’ve typically been asked to design something from scratch. Does that sound right?
