Random question but I just bought a ticket on United using my miles. Can I use a RPU to get it upgraded, or do those not apply for mileage tickets?

Not eligible for RPU upgrade

Technically they’re not called RPUs anymore. Also can’t upgrade when bought with miles. Might be able to pay a cash upgrade

Anyone following this gabby petito case?

I can’t believe they told her to sleep in her van and put him up in a hotel for the night. The entire situation is a true mirror of how flawed our law enforcement system is to deal with crisis situations or DV disturbances.

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
