Has anyone seen Hotel/Airline status challenges? I was told by some people I work with we usually get them a couple times a year. I remember one when I was at welcome to EY but that's it.

You can also just call the hotel and airline to see if they’ll allow you to do a status challenge even if there’s not a current offer happening. I did this with Marriott and Delta. They just wanted to see that I already had a few upcoming trips scheduled to justify it which I did.

I agree. Talking to someone by phone also helped me become qualified for a status challenge I wasn’t technically qualified for.

On the search bar at the EY homepage search “Global Travel Meetings & Events —> select result —> on the far right of page select “special offers”. The available challenges can be found on this page.

Thank you!

Can someone explain the logic behind firms requiring masks only for unvaccinated employees? Transmission is the same whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, especially for the delta variant. The CDC’s website says that vaccinated individuals could “potentially” have lower transmission rates, but there’s no actual data to support this statement. It seems like a way for firms to encourage (instead of mandating) the vaccine but it ends up being a discriminatory practice. Thoughts?
