Had an American flight to Miami for Friday. Now: we now have a free flight and stay for Tuesday-Thursday. We want to get our money back for the Friday flight, but didn’t purchase insurance. Can we use the COVID situation to our advantage, i.e. are airlines still letting your do crazy reschedules/get refunds etc?

If I book basic economy, would I still get that checked bag + a carry on? How does seat selection work on basic? What priority boarding group is associated with this card? I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

Want to get something that I can use for a long time, but not sure if XL is good enough or I would need to go XXL. TIA!

My favorite partner that I’ve been working with consistently for a couple years now has recently brought on a new senior on his last several deals with me (I’m a junior). This new senior is actually the worst and I don’t want to work for this partner anymore now that this new senior is involved. Is there an indirect, casual way for me to mention to the partner I can’t work with this senior associate?
