My grandma is nearing the end of her life, so I just booked a last minute flight home with cash. I am thinking of booking a returning flight in the next few days with points with United. I may have to cancel/reschedule...does anyone know if they refund points if <1 week out? I can’t find the answer online.

Try the consulting bowl. I don’t recall, but think they’re flexible on a reschedule. You lose fees, though.

With American Airlines they are flexible on cancelling award teafep

Yes they totally refund - especially with Covid, they’ve relaxed a lot of the travel policies. I am sorry to hear about your grandma ☹️

How is everyone organizing Jira? A project for each product or offering within a product or just a single backlog.

I can’t help but think this is hard to manage.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
