Original flight was ultimately cancelled after multiple delays. Do I ask for pts? (Note flight I got on was delayed waiting for travelers connecting from other flights — cannot remember when they ever waited for me) ...

Agree with BCG1. Has happened to me multiple tones as GS and not as GS. However, if you don’t call it registers as the fare type and dollars which count to your GS next year. They will not give you miles or credit is my experience

(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.
