Going to Honolulu the week before July 4th. Looking at rental cars and every single company I've looked at (Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National) shows no availability?? Will things open up as time gets closer or am out of luck
I don’t have much experience traveling in (international) business class. I recently upgraded a flight for 3 people but I am hesitant to pay again to reserve the seats. As far as I know they’ll let me choose the seats day before departure. Question — am I taking any risk by not assigning seats? I’m guessing since I already paid, they’ll hold the seats for us. Granted we may or may not be able to sit together, I just want to make sure they’ll hold 3 seats.
Any talk of travel resuming at Accenture ? I am about to join as a Life Science Technology consultant and was hoping to get thoughts on if travel will be what it was pre-COVID (Mon-Thurs travel)? Thanks for your input!
Does anyone know how long is the H1B processing time right now ? (For new visa). My case was received on May 21st - Still have not heard anything.
Looking for a Tudor black bay 58 with black dial on nato? Tourneau in NYC on Madison and 53rd has one. I bought it last night then exchanged it just now for the leather strap. Call them and ask for Semsa and tell her the guy who just swapped for the leather told you. Unfort unless you’re an existing tourneau customer they won’t ship to you Good way to use that $500 chase sapphire reserve rebate for Tourneau. They also have a Tudor GMT Pepsi in stock

Was sitting at a green light to take a left turn and a dude on a bike just rammed into me. Says my bad and drives off. Left a nice scratch and dent on my car door. I have a toddler in the car so couldn’t chase after him. What’s the best course of action? No police nearby and too late for him to be caught.

Expecting my first child in a couple months. Parents in India have been dying to come to the US but unable to due to the visa restrictions. Anyone know of any exceptions to the visa restrictions that may apply or any other workaround? (Besides staying in 3rd country for 14days) I am above 21, married, US citizen. Parents gave up their green cards and are on tourist visa 😔
No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?

Which plane to pick? Both United flights, 20 min time difference, same price. One is a 737 MAX 9 and the other 737-900 (layout 3 per seat guru). Buying 1st class tickets. I know there was the whole thing with the MAX planes in 2019/2020, but I have reasonable confidence that it won’t be a problem. But aside from that it’s a coin flip for me unless someone has some input

Junior cap markets associate at a V25 and I'm on track this month to bill 280+ hrs at my current rate and more in October. I'm miserable doing deal work with a group I have shown zero interest in from day 1, but the group I am interested in has been slow over the summer. I dream of going in-house as a mid-level at a non-bank. What are some firms that do company work, i.e., have client companies and do general corporate work for them? Bonus points if tech or energy industry clients!
