I'm about $1000 PQP away from making it from United Gold to United Platinum for 2022. Is it worth it to upgrade my IAD-SFO RT flight to first class for $1000 RT to make it to the next tier? Is United still halting full meal service for first class flights > 2 hrs? Website says they just serve sandwiches and a snack box.

Honestly had same debate a few years back UA*G to *P by paying for accelerator. Partner convinced me not to do it. Following year ended up making P- honestly G to P very very little difference. P to 1k however could be worth it depending on travel habits

How do you cope with being laid off? I’ve changed jobs many times, even moved to the other side of the world without job and work visa (it all worked out fine) and after I left my previous job I took 6 months off to travel before I started this job at a network agency I loved. I always had confidence. This is the first time I feel so heartbroken and almost grieving about it, and even the quality of work sucked (but the network and people are good). How do I get over this? I want myself back!

Looking to travel to Lisbon and Greece this July for my honeymoon(we’ve delayed it due to Covid).
