Any reason you need to get platinum in the very near future? There’s 7 more months to qualify, you don’t think you’ll fly at least once the rest of the year?

Sorry should have clarified I switched from United and am doing the challenge which has to be complete by 05-19

Are you looking cheapest same day turn or an actual getaway?

Cheapest same day

Probably ORD-LGA, plus they’re every hour with free drinks

Hey guys off topic

I had travelled from Mumbai to Howrah by train in Dec 2021 and had worked from my laptop. The speed was decent and I was able to attend most of the calls too. This month i again travelled on the same route and I barely got above 2 MBPS. There was no proper network along the way, God knows why. Is this due to incoming 5G bandwidth or any other reason?

Quick question. I’m traveling to Belgium and Netherlands from US. It seems that both counties require to you carry passport at all times (for identification). Of course the chances are low I get asked but I’m a person of color so it’s a bit more likely. I’m thinking about just carrying it in a money belt and not take chances. Don’t want to deal with fines or any unnecessary bs as I’m only there for few days. Any advice or tips? Thank you.
