Has anyone experienced American Airlines cracking down on hidden city or skiplagged flights?? AKA making you pay the difference in ticket price for stopping at your destination rather than stopping at your “connection”
Does anyone else think the Delta variant will lead to shutdowns and layoffs again? I want to leave my job but fear being the first to get the chop if March 2020 repeats itself. Should I just jump ship already? If it helps, I’m not in travel PR.
Did delta give any bonus sky miles if you were affected by the system outage 2 weeks ago?
Fishes.. Used my points to book first class on delta domestic. I am at the gate and just noticed that while I am in the first class cabin right now my next flight seat is comfort plus. Any ideas?
American Airlines has lost their damn minds with Citi Advantage promo. Spend $40k in a year with a $450 annual fee and get a free Admirals membership 😭🤣
Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Any advice out there from points pros that combined finances after marriage?
Had a vacation planned to my timeshare in St. Martin in February, hotel is pretty destroyed - flying Delta (platinum) anyone know their policy or best way to go about getting refunded / voucher?
If I'm Delta Platinum, will I get any sort of status match from American? Usual Thursday flight got eliminated
Remember when Fauci said we didn't need masks then said we did but only N95 masks, but then said any face covering will work. Then said if you're vaccinated you need to double mask. Then said you can single mask. Then said no masks if you're vaccinated. Now the CDC says you need a 3rd vaccine shot to "greatly" prevent delta variant. But no, EVEN if you're vaccinated you can get Covid. Like f off. This is not exact science clearly. I have taken 2 shots but now I refuse to listen to this BS.
I’ll be traveling internationally on Delta with 3 pcs of checked luggage (free because I’m platinum) One of them weighs >50lbs. Will they waive the overweight baggage fee if I ask nicely?
Have a trip planned to Portugal in late September. How concerned should I be that travel may be restricted for Americans again due to the Delta variant? Are people still planning international trips for the fall? Or waiting to see how this pans out? We are fully vaccinated. This is a trip we rebooked after having to cancel in April 2020. Will be so sad if we have to cancel again 😢
Currently diamond w/ delta. Moved to Chicago...status match to United or American? I wish neither but need direct flights.
I always thought air India had old aunties as air hostesses... M on this flight right now on American where the flight attendant is easily 60.. Her voice so frail her safety instructions r scaring me
Best way to use 100k Amex points when leaving the firm in 2 weeks with no immediate travel plans? Let’s assume Schwab option is off the table and that I live in a delta hub.
Delta drink vouchers...enjoy!
What cert to go for next? Currently have AWS-SAA and Security+. Thinking about CISSP but how difficult is it compared to the AWS-SAA?
How is Delta ever going to recover from this mess? My flight from Thurs has been cancelled 10 different times. Their phones are down. Everything is so backed up, I don't see this being resolved...
We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?
Who else has introspected about how short life is, quality of relationships, work/life balance, security of finances, how things can change rapidly after seeing the COVID world. Share your thoughts?
What if your entire consulting career thus far have been a variety of functional roles (BA/PM type) and no expertise in 1 area/technology/industry? How are exit ops to other firms or even industry?
Would you date a guy who grew up under a father who was abusive towards his mother? He doesn’t like his dad for oblivious reasons but I am kind of scared to walk into this. He seems like a great guy
I am 35, currently a manager, on track to get promoted to senior manager next year. I work on post merger integration/ separation. I want to break into PE (investment team). I am currently learning the basics. How should I break in? Any advice, what role should I target
Can I apply for the same department my wife works in? Or would that be conflict of interest? She works for a big 4
When did you know that you want to have a kid(s) and what helped you decide to go for it? Not a mom but want to ask people With first hand experience. My BF is sure he wants them and I did too until I did the research on cost of childcare, lifestyle changes, and most importatntly the impact on career (my BF says family stays with you but works don't. I love work for the sense of achievement). Now I am leaning toward childfree. I would really appreciate your thoughts and advice!
Congrats to COVID19 promotion list
Interview tomorrow and recruiter encouraged me to have notes out to keep track of my stories (5 interviews, 1 hour each). Should I acknowledge and ask each interviewer if it's ok for me to have notes out? I feel like it'd feel weird for me to very obviously glance at my screen after a question every once in a while without acknowledging what's going on or asking permission.
I’m applying for an Indian Visa for an upcoming work trip, the visa processor emailed me this morning, “I need your wife’s name and information” I replied with, his name is Jonathan...”
Any special promotion days for seniors at ey? Currently staff 2. Does ey fly you out somewhere or just gives you a title
Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
Anyone been to cuba recently? Any watchouts from an immigration point of view. Planning to travel mid july
I recently accepted an industry exit offer at 2 YOE. I have taken vacation for the last two weeks and am meeting with my talent manager today to let them know. They think we are meeting to discuss the pipeline for next week. Any advice for the conversation? I have enough PTO to last until my start date in mid August. Can I expect to take all of it?
