I have a long flight coming up (with two layovers, and one of the flights is 8 hours long — red eye). My daughter is 2yo and I’m debating whether we should take the car seat with us or not. She’d be more comfortable in the plane and would be easier to “restrain” her… But the thought of carrying that huge and heavy car seat across four airports doesn’t sound very appealing. Any advise?
Sitting behind Ben Carson, from ATL to FLL, wonder what he thinks of the debate last night. Famous people that you saw on the flight?
Anyone wanna grab my Marriott points? 100k points up for sale. Flat 600$ and it's yours.
Best way to find award flight options on Delta/United/AA, from US to Europe? Somewhat flexible in dates and locations - just want to see what low-cost options there are in June/July
PSA for anyone wanting to help in Afghanistan: you can donate your airline miles to people trying to flee the country so they can get a flight to settle somewhere else. The organization is called Miles4Migrants and The Points Guy is matching donations up to $20K, check it out:

Hmm... keep my whole Sunday and fly Spirit Monday morning? Or give up and fly American Sunday night?
I mentioned during the interview process that I had a young daughter and the conversation immediately went to “you saw this position requires 25% travel, right?” I should’ve never said anything. 😔
Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November? I have a few weeks between jobs, concerned about getting Covid in another country and not being able to come back on time. I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
Can someone confirm: flying United Economy (K) from LAX-IAD-LHR, the LAX-IAD route is 20 PlusPoints to upgrade to biz, IAD-LHR routes are 80 plus points.
I have been United GS for several years, just requalified. I’ve usually made SPG platinum on stays, never really had Marriott status, but since the merger I linked the two accounts and so have been
Delta delays is causing me to get stuck in Atlanta overnight with no hotel provided because "Mother Nature doesn't pay for hotels". What.

Gave up my seat for a 500 voucher . Did it for the first time. Question can I use it to book flight for someone else ?
Why do holidays count against utilization?
What do you do when your SO is so naive that she tells her employer during a promotion interview that her long term plan is a career in academia.
Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?
What to prefer an why: 150k plus benefits at EY or 200k plus benefits at Wipro. Both roles are in tech advisory. Same location same role.
A misogynistic and racist leader in my group who created a toxic culture on his projects was just given the boot and I am so happy about it!

A couple days ago was emailed by my SM who cc: another SM and our MD on the account. They were thanking me for all the hard work I’ve been doing. Our MD said it was great to see a new team member playing such an important role. I replied bla bla. They then talked about how they world set up time to talk about my future on the project. For context I’m a campus hire 3months in on a tech implementation. I don’t see myself on this project long term doent align with my end goals. Should I express

Seems like this is a good place to get a reality check on what I am looking for in a position. I am trying to leave my current firm. I am a Senior Tax Accountant. Been the only Senior for a year. Currently make $76k. Had a bonus of $4500 this year. Not sure what the bonus is going to be next year (or if there will be any) since they are moving to a new bonus plan that is supposed to be more "fair and generous" We have a Safe harbor 401k plan. So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.
Any single moms who raised boys? My first kid, I grew up as an only child with no brother, and really clueless as to how to raise a boy. I’d have an easier time with a girl since I kinda know how
A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
