did you stop flying with them or did you not have your FF# on the res

Stop flying with them. Been mainly Southwest the last 9 months, with everything else AA and Delta where I still have status

It was an adjustment, but with Business Select, they actually grew on me this year

Southwest isn't bad. You know what you're getting and they are very consistent.

A get that people want things to be back to normal and offices are starting to open back up, but delta clearly seems to be picking up and we will likely have to roll back very soon. Feels like we are back in early March 2020 when Covid hit the US and we took much longer than necessary to respond

I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate. There was a lady at the sink completely topless boobs all out all over the place and I think she was trying to take a half sponge bath in the sink, like taking wet paper towels and wiping her arm pits. Also no mask on. This is weird, right?

How is spend at Marriott calculated? Just the nightly rate? Or the final bill that includes all sorts of tax?

Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!

I live alone and have loved the time not traveling but WFH has really started getting to me the past few weeks. On top of that, I got a series of bad news this week that really took a toll on my mental health (one has affected my ability to visit family), and I’ve never felt this alone in my life. I miss having an office to go to and see others in. Even started skipping workouts & cooking, both of which I love. Could use hugs and inspiration to get past this hump
