I would say that given the fact that they have restored operations and apart from operating 4-5 hours late, DL has shown remarkable resiliency. Power interuptions + Federal crew duty rest requirements + limited capacity + Union contracts + globally distributed operations = a shit show any time something goes wrong. Roll with the punches.



I'm not affected... yet. Kind of confused why they wouldn't have MULTIPLE power backup and alternate/disaster recovery site with systems and desks ready. I once did a DR / BCP for a client where the goal was to get them back to running at 80% in one hour and full 100% in 3. Just saying.

The issue tends to be re-synchronizing the systems for: • Reservations • Crew Managemrnt • Maintenance Control • Weight and Balance • Aircraft Routing • Cargo • Gate and Ramp Control As orchestrated as all of these systems are, every one of the flights we take are a delicate balance in which a myriad of working pieces have come together so that each flight is operated safely. Right crew, right equipment loaded properly with the correct performance management and the right bags and cargo at the right gate with an agent there to jetbridge up and jetbridge back Thousands of times a day. One blip and the balance falls.

P&C focused people: What do you do to find success cross-selling life policies? I mostly sell P&C off internet leads. Most are not the ideal client for my company but I take care of them like I would anyone else. I do okay but not great with life after having the client for six months once I move them into a preferred policy. That move saves them enough to make life doable coupled with established trust. I’ve been told just to quote the auto and life together initially but it feels “off” to me.

Hey, student intern at a big consulting firm here. Company says they’ll cover travel expenses, so I’m curious to know if requesting them to book a first class flight will damage my reputation (no flight restrictions were mentioned; company only mentioned that we put our “preferred” flight details).

I’m a Project Manager making 90k. Recently, I helped a few friends get hired into the company I work for and they were both started at 10-15k higher than I am currently. One has a few more years of experience but the rest have the same level of experience as I do - in fact, we come from similar backgrounds in terms of roles and companies. Should I bring this up with my boss during pay raise discussions? I feel it’s unfair that people are being brought in at a much higher amount.
