Consulting

I think something was wrong w my AA flight today DFW > LGA. How can I find out what happened? It was very shaky, saw the flight went in a circle route, and asked to prepare for landing halfway through

There was really bad fog in NYC this afternoon that kept coming and going quickly. Maybe they first thought you wouldn’t be able to land but then they were cleared to continue? If there was anything wrong with the plane where they tried to land in Cleveland, I doubt they would suddenly be ok to go on to NY.

Looks like they slowed you down for spacing/ sequencing into NYC. Pretty normal. Slow airspeed down and circle. Especially going into weather. Altitude didn’t drop, just speed. Pilots likely had the flight attendants secure the cabin prior to passing through weather because they were going to have the FAs sit for the remainder of the flight.

It’s called turbulence. It’s when the laminar flow of air over the wings is disrupted due to wind patterns. It’s normal.

Thanks! That was the circle I saw on the flight map and why did the yellow line dropped?

Saw on the flight map circled around Cleveland and that’s when the flight asked to prepare for landing. Luckily nothing happened but was such a scary experience. Asked to prepare landing again once we were closer to LGA

Probably the flux capacitor. They are usually only good for 400-500 hours then need to be replaced. Pretty easy swap and replace once you remove the vortex generators on the wing.

Also any additional shuddering you felt was likely use of speed brakes (spoilers) at altitude.

Did the cabin pressure drop or oxygen mask came out? If not pretty much what others have said. Usually the pilot announces weather conditions when they get worse so wondering why your pilot didn’t?

My wife and I want to travel to several continents post-COVID, while also both working remotely. Are there any jobs in Cyber that can be done entirely remote and that still pay very well? I have a CISSP (associate status). Currently I do a lot of assessments (NIST, ISO, etc.) and data protection related work. I am beginning to break into more technical consulting work such as implementations (although I do have a pretty technical background) . I would love to break into cloud eventually.

This bowl never let me down so here I am again... I have one month off in December before I start a new job in January. I saved up $5k to travel this but never got to it due to Covid. Given Covid, any suggestions on how to safely travel, unplug and enjoy my month off the most? I take covid seriously but I am not one of those people who never step the foot outside because of it. I have not been visiting people or going out but I would go do my regular grocery shopping, walk at the park, hike...

Project (not within own competency/practice) needs a junior person with good client relationship to step up and lead PM (generally a SM role). From a negotiation standpoint, it wouldn't be unreasonable for said junior person to demand to be immediately on-site (travel, expenses) and to bill out at the rate of the next-grade, would it? This is not an "eat what you kill" career until you lead sales, but everything is negotiable and if the client deems you critical, then it's leverage...
