I currently have MVP Status which was gifted to me pre covid and it’ll expire some time in 2022. I doubt alaska will extend again if I don’t hit the mileage requirements. I have a few trips planned and want to get an airlines CC. At the moment I do not have one. What airline should I go with? I fly west coast a lot with some ski resort destination across the US. Im leaning towards Delta but wanted to get some thoughts. Also does anyone in here have more than one airline CC?

Got a message saying I could change my United flight with no change fee because of an itinerary change. I checked and there are fully refundable rates I could change to (current rate is not fully refundable). Couldn't I change it to a fully refundable rate then... Get a full refund? What's the catch?

Woman sitting beside me on the flight is continuously snorting and sneezing without covering her nose. Aaaargh, guess who's getting the virus! 🤷♀️
Experienced hire interviewing for big four - Is interviewing with a couple partners in the group an almost certain signal that you will get the offer or not close enough, assuming you don't mess up the interview?

Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity
