Relocating from NYC to Philly for biz-school in Q3-20. Not planning to return to NYC or consulting. Delta Platinum this year but not expecting to travel too much. Should I switch alliance to American?

Wow congrats on your admit to Temple’s Fox School of Business! Jk jk. In all seriousness I’ve heard majority of the time flights out of Philly suck and students split an Uber to fly out of JFK or LGA. You might as well stick with Delta.

Would disagree. I live in philly and travel almost weekly. American isn't as bad as people say it is. Besides a delay every once and awhile they get you where you need to be. It all depends where you will be traveling to most frequently. I travel to Sfo, ord, dtw, clt and lax quite frequently. All have direct flights. Have even taken direct flights to orlando, Phoenix and new orleans via American from philly. You should be alright

^^^ no one splits Uber to LGA, that’s a 2+ hour ride for a smaller, more expensive airport that offers more or less the same routes

Just basing off what multiple current students have told me. Although the students I know are going more to Africa and Asia than Western Europe so that might play a role. I’ll validate this Fall and let you know

Yes. Source: live in Philly and work in consulting, Delta represents less than 5% of flights. American roughly 70% of all flights, has direct routes to basically anywhere in the country. Option #2 should be UA out of EWR (avoid at all costs)

Thanks all. Sounds like if I can successfully do a status match it’s worth switching early, else maybe just wait til I’m actually there. Not sure what I’ll do with my metric tons of Delta miles but I’m sure I’ll find a way

I tutor ESL after school and recently switched over to Zoom. Students are stating that they are unable to annotate. I’ve read that this is common for Chromebook users. Does anyone know of a way to bypass this and/or any video/picture tutorials? Otherwise, it looks like we’ll just have to add an additional open tab with a google share doc. Many thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

Seems like every consulting firm has some variation of New/Digital ventures. Have any of them successfully ventured anything? I know PwC has some kind-of successful healthcare thing.
