Awesome

funny

Didn’t they have an alliance with American before too?

Yeah I’m based out of Seattle and would want to switch to Alaska from Delta so this alliance is kind of nice, but I hate American with a passion

They still do but it’s been scaled back. This is good news for AA flyers and provides more eastern US options for AS flyers. AS already had alliances with other OW carriers (British Airways, Cathay, etc. off the top of my head) so this isn’t shocking. Now I wish Aer Lingus (Ireland) would hurry up and join. They’re already wholly owned by IAG, which also owns OW members British Airways and Iberia. This would give some more European connection options via Dublin that would allow me to visit Heathrow less.

In need of some guidance re: a potential promotion. A senior writer on my team is leaving and I’m hoping to transition into that role (I’m mid level). Last week I talked to my GCD/manager about the writer leaving. We mostly only talked about passing along recos to get a referral bonus. Then it hit me hours later: I’m the one for the job. I set up time to talk to said manager. I have my reasons all set and ready but I’m worried they’ll say no on the spot. How can I best prepare?
