If you’re 1 on standby, it’s almost certain you’ll clear and make the flight. People will get upgraded to Business, miss the flight, cancel, etc.

Very good chance unless you are low on the standby list. Also gotta keep in mind no-shows and missed connections

I have an issue that’s been on my mind. I’m not big. I’m 5’4 and around 125 lbs, but pretty much all of my friends have disordered eating habits. I’m supposed to go on a beach vacation with them in two weeks and all I can think about is how much bigger I’m going to look next to them. I almost want to cancel my flight out of anxiety.

Had an American flight to Miami for Friday. Now: we now have a free flight and stay for Tuesday-Thursday. We want to get our money back for the Friday flight, but didn’t purchase insurance. Can we use the COVID situation to our advantage, i.e. are airlines still letting your do crazy reschedules/get refunds etc? Just curious if there’s any magic we can make happen here to get our money back or fly out at a much later date.

Anyone uses PetSport plastic travel crate? I’m getting my male german shepherd puppy soon but not sure which size to order. I’m thinking either extra large or extra extra large, since the crate is so expensive and I will block part of it with pillow or something similar to make it smaller when he’s still a puppy. Want to get something that I can use for a long time, but not sure if XL is good enough or I would need to go XXL. TIA!

What’s everyone’s experience with traveling these days - how often and for what reasons? And where do you anticipate it going? I’ve left consulting but considering coming back, under the assumption that the regular 4 day travel week is basically not coming back (tho obv client / project specific and certainly will make sense sometimes). Am I nuts?
