@BCG OP and @BCG 1, does BCG allow its personnel to book full price first class tickets on regional flights? (Regardless if internally charged or to a client that does not prohibit it in the SOW?) If so, awesome perk. I am jealous.

Be thankful it's only 90 min. I had that on my last Detroit to Paris (France) flight... 😷 sorry though! It is definitely never enjoyable

Haha. Hate those 8X min routes ;-)

Fully open the personal fans above your seat and blow it towards him, or create a wall of air between you and him. Use his for added protection if needed..did this once and it worked surprisingly well

I would book the Y-up OP unless management specifically told you not to

Those are more 'guidelines' than anything

Oh wow, that stinks. I haven't ran into that problem! Maybe, they've been enforcing it as of late. Sorry OP!

Tell the guy he smells he prob doesn't know

Hey all! So I will be getting married in less than a year- originally our wedding was going to be about 80 people. But I’m between my in law and parents wanting to invite more people (who both of us barely know) the count is rising.

I did not want a big wedding/event to begin with - but it meant a lot to my partner so I was ok with it. But now with the wedding 8.5 months away - I just don’t really care for it bc I’m so anxious.

Any wedding planning advice?
