This week's announcements suck for SPG and AA loyal travelers. 2016: SPG is going away and AAdvantage program is changing for the worst.
United is refusing to status match my AA Executive Platinum status due to my "temporary promotional status." What part of 104k miles last year is promotional? I already regret switching to United 🖕🏼
AA launched their 2016 Status Challenge. Easy to get. 12.5k EQM for Platinum, 7k EQM for Gold. Plus a small fee ($200/$120)
I have SQ frequent flyer but I'm thinking to switch it to United. Can I transfer the last few flights that's been credited to Krisflyer to MileagePlus?
Delta Platinum vs American Platinum: which status do you most often get upgraded? I know AA Platinum is easier to attain but I also have Delta/SPG/Uber crossover. Home base is LAX.
Amex rewards is not as well as cards like Marriott or Citi AAdvantage. Isn't it better sometimes to use your card for expenses, but report it correctly and be reimbursed?
Switching to united from delta on a status match challenge. Can platinum United get upgraded on international flights? I know it's only diamond for Delta
Did a 6 month Corp United status match do my delta diamond due to a route change and I met the segments for platinum and my account has been updated. The match ended on Tuesday, wait a a day to call?
Curious to know if other firms have programs that give new hires status with airlines and hotels? Or do you have to earn it? When I joined I got United Gold, Delta Gold, Marriott Platinum, SPG gold.
I may not have earned my United status or first class upgrade tomorrow since it's due to firm perks but I get why people are so stuck up going to first class. It's because we're better than the plebs
This does not seem like normal behavior to me.
One of my teammates keeps calling me "bro". Like good morning bro, I will do it bro Bro, I need help Bro this, bro that In chat and calls. He comes from a boutique consulting form and not sure he is aware that it's really not a professional way of addressing someone. Needless to say, he is doing nothing wrong as such, hence havnot talked to him on this, but I want this to stop. Need him to grow up a bit professionally.

I used to work at Gartner (India) in 2018 and one day found this at the printer. Shows the bands at Gartner & quiet some difference in salaries for people at the same level/designation. The ones earning 30-40 lakhs per annum are IIT/IIM folks, with same years of work experience as non IIT/IIM folks - really disgusting to be honest! Point is, negotiate well if you are joining Gartner India as the company has a lot of money to give.
Not a consulting question: planning to travel solo to turkey. Just trying to do a 4-5 day trip. 🐠 that have done this, Is it better to go to istanbul/cappadocia during thanksgiving time or Christmas?
Get brought in for a month of dev work on a project that's been running for 3 months. Me: Are we just doing a PoC?
