What class you looking to fly in? Y should be pretty simple to find even over the holiday weekend. J may take some deeper searching.

Flying blue is probably the simplest, but nothing looked stellar from JFK/BOS. Toronto has some 50k J options earlier in the week and 68k options towards the end of the week. Montreal was a strikeout.

Alternate search (which I haven’t looked at) is Virgin Atlantic to book an AF. Aeroplan might have some options but will likely require layovers in BRU, FRA, MUC or Canada

Nagarro offered 18LPA. Initially I told HR for 22 but he mentioned 18 into their internal portal to their senior so after clearing all interview rounds I got 18.

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.
