@OP you have a really unique definition of being "personally victimized"

Random delays, incompetence, and the 500 mile upgrade certificates. Also the fact that I could've qualified for plat pro last year but it wasn't a thing. 🙃

They suck

Hot FAs at DCA today from AA 😏

Mechanical delay on friday, was rebook ed for Sunday morning. Didn't want to get back home on Sunday and travel again on Monday. So asked them for a full refund for next week's travel - and they said they couldn't

The idea being I stay the weekend and return the following Thursday

I miss US Airways. There was always something endearing about their old planes and automatic upgrades. Le sigh

Personally victimized a bit dramatic.

There are more horror stories with them. Agreed with @K1 with the legacy useless air stuff

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
