Hi Fishes,
Want you opinion, Its been more than an year now since I hold my H1B visa, but I don't see any initiative from my organization for my on-site travel.
All I am getting is commitments and extended timelines.
What other options do I have?
Any references?

Have a 7:10 am flight with United, boarding starts 6:20 (no pre check). Taking Uber from old town, so thinking of leaving at 5/5:15 am to be there by 5:30/5:40 for security. Should I leave around 5:20 if no long lines for regular security check?

Trying to book Hyatt with points for the first time but the room I wanted (21k points a night) is no longer available on the site. There’s one with 36k points a night but obviously way more expensive and not ideal

I feel like no but is there a way to book the 36k and then downgrade/get a refund if a 21k room becomes available again? Tried asking an agent but they just said they weren’t sure

If that’s the case should I just book the 36k or are the odds a 21k becomes available again high?

Additional Posts in Offer Negotiations

Not sure what's wrong with companies (HRs) these days.

I've lost 2 offers just because of my joining date and for which I've specifically said that my notice period would be 60 days.
After taking multiple rounds of interview and taking documents then HR would come back that we can only offer if you can join within 'X' days.

Literally frustrated with these sorts of tactics.

PS: one of the companies was a well known US based card company.
