Lots of choices - JAL, ANA, plus US three. What airline are you trying on? And are you only looking for first or also business? Summer can be difficult…

Looking at ANA via Virgin, Aeroplan and direct and not seeing anything out of LAX. Some options for a single ticket on business via Aeroplan but that’s it

Tix may not be available yet. Some airlines don't sell more than 9 months in advance.

Try booking through ANA, it'll cost you a little but more 110k vs 150k but you'll have more options (entire star alliance)

Sign up for ANA FF program and transfer your points there they are cheaper than most other options...otherwise, go to with Air Canada and collect 20% bonus miles before end of month.

Hi! I am planning to move from Georgia to California (San Jose). Prior to signing a new lease in San Jose, I wanted to work with the immigration to file my the LCA for the work location change.

Or should I sign a lease with my name and then start the LCA process? Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

Have a few upcoming practice interviews with McK people - and have done a fair amount of case prep but still nervous and wanting to impress (especially since they’re all EM+). I think overall I’m better at candidate led due to mainly practicing those, and I understand the actual fundamentals don’t change style to style, but outside of repping McK cases is there anything anyone found particularly useful when practicing those types of cases that they might recommend to me? Thanks!
