On delta are you eligible for first class upgrade on a rewards ticket? Or if its points/cash ticket?
I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty
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?
Ladies—I am terrified of flying—particularly the parts where we are not over land and the parts where turbulence is really bad. I literally just sit on the plane, staring at the map on the tv screen, with anxiety. I’m supposed to be flying across the world on a 14-hour non-stop flight in 2 weeks. I grew up moving/traveling and therefore flying a ton but always hated it and was scared. I haven’t been on a plane since September of 2019 (due to covid and moving to the same city as family). Advice?
What do you typically do if you are catching a red eye flight. Do you make a reservation for the night so you can stop by the hotel and freshen up or go straight to the client after landing?
Need YOUR advise. I have a concert tomorrow at a sold out stadium concert. We’re in a Covid surge here with Delta, I am vaccinated but high risk. Should I cancel? Tickets weren’t that expensive. Just not sure how I feel about being with 20K folks. Especially wit the new data from the CDC.

We have a trip to Miami planned in two weeks. Just saw that Florida is averaging 20,000 cases day of mostly the delta variant. Super bummed as we’re both vaccinated and hopefully was going to get away, but looks like we may have to change plans. 😭

Serious question here: Does anyone actually really enjoy consulting? I just moved to Big Tech and I can’t believe I stayed that long in consulting. Better WLB, waaaaaaaaaaayy better pay, challenging work environment, some company proves to have just as good of career growth opportunity, smart yet lax colleague. What is it? The prestige? The travel (obviously not now)? Am I missing out on anything that I just fail to see?
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.

Has anyone here committed to a partner who has significant debt? My partner of over a year has >$300K in debt from med school.
