If you no show there’s usually also a no show fee. They really don’t like it when you no show

That's a change fee. Happens even if you call the airline ahead, not just if you no show.

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.

Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
