Home base is PHL, AA has most of the non-stops but the AA “experience” is leaving a LOT to be desired. Have status with them, no where else. Options?

If you’re in Philly, I’d just stick with AA. Flying anyone else is just going to add stops and time. Not worth it imo. Plus the idea of flying out of D or E makes me cringe.

Do you live on the north end of Center City or in the suburbs north/north west of Philly? Really not that far from EWR. Doesn’t really work if you fly every week like most, but if you only travel for work sporadically, you could pull it off. That new United concourse there is beautiful.

If only EWR added runways ... a beautiful terminal only goes so far when its pitiful runway configuration means big delays even on sunny days but with the wind blowing the wrong way. I too live in Philly’s western suburbs (near Chadds Ford) and do not consider EWR (nor BWI, which can be quicker to get to) a viable alternative for frequent travel. Need a nonstop to Singapore? Sure. Consulting domestic travel? No way. I guess you could consider Amtrak Keystone trains to EWR station from Downingtown, Exton, Paoli or Ardmore, but they just aren’t always frequent enough. In spite of AA’s troubles I’ve stuck with them as a) I have high status and b) the ability to avoid connections to nearly every market I fly to means less time spent traveling.

Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.

My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company. When I joined there were 8 PMs. Today, 6 of those have quit and 3 of those are in the past 3 weeks. We’ve hired 3 more since I joined. I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?
