Can Delta people explain to me why they stick with Delta even though you can't automatically choose Comfort+ seats when you can for United and American?

AA will change soon enough once they roll out the announced 'premium economy'. First international, then domestic.

A recruiter reached out with an opportunity at a Chinese-based firm. Opportunity is in the US and I have no ties to china. I’m not trying to sound racist, but I just don’t know how comfortable I would be working for a Chinese firm given geopolitical differences, cultural differences, the nature of the Chinese government etc. Am I just being too paranoid? It otherwise sounds like a good opportunity.

Hi just needed a quick opinion on something. Is it a good time to start with aura ? Or should I skip directly to lwc. I have decent experience of Salesforce around 2+ years but never really gotten a chance to work on aura or lwc so now I’m upgrading myself and want to know which one should I go for. I know for a fact aura is little outdated now but still it’s gonna be here for a while atleast few years and there are many projects based on aura too.
