The BA blue one is the standard consulting one, along with the gold Amex (ask for a referral and choose your best friend). Having said that I always think Hotel cards offer excellent value - I have the Hilton one and it made a massive difference to my earnings.

When you’re on point to lead a call, and your manager is on the call, is it normal for them to constantly “add points”/interrupt you every minute? I’ve had a couple managers and noticed that every one of them that did this, didn’t add any value beyond what I was saying most of the time. On the contrary, when I had SMs or MDs on the call, they never interrupted.

Delta status question. I have silver status but am probably going to miss it by a tiny bit this year. I know it rolls over to next year but will my mqms rollover too? Technically I am silver so they should but also I didn’t meet this years requirements so I could see why they wouldn’t too. Confused by this.
