Do you have a delta platinum Amex yet? That’s 10k MQMs right there if you can spend 3k by the end of the year on anything (plus you’ll get 70k mile bonus). You may need a referral code, drop me a burner if you don’t have one yet. Then you’re just a quick mileage run away from Platinum. Depending on where you’re located you can probably get 3k MQMs for $200-250 round trip tickets for a weekend getaway.

If you are going for the Amex MQMs, make sure the $3k spend posts on your Dec statement or else it won't count until next year

Yes. I think it’s definitely worth it. I can’t even count the number of times
1. I have changed flights using same day confirmed travel
2. I cancelled non-refundable tickets and got “one time waivers” (saved $200 each time)
3. Was treated well by Air France and KLM for being platinum

Also used my platinum certificates to fly Delta one to SFO

3) what's the income tax slab.
4) what would be minimum required CTC.
5 ) can we demand more compensation than they quoted
6)If they provided M level compensation, how much can I expect

Thanks in advance!
