@ACN1 Odd. I'm plat and fly in/out of hubs. I get upgraded more than I don't.

@kpmg1: that's bs if you're flying regular consultant times. I'm platinum and my father is diamond and literally neither of us ever get upgraded (unless going to shitty places or at weird times). Every time I have flow to or from a client in a major market city, there are about 20 diamonds boarding ahead of me...

I joined scaler in April 2019 while getting CTC of 3.5LPA from nagarro wasn't happy the pay but stayed with the hope of learning which faded away in just 10 Months.
