Ask your FA if you're doing it wrong. They'll check, see it's broken and offer you points

Forget everyone saying this isn’t complaint worthy, first class doesn’t cost extra for nothing.

Is it really broken? Some first class seats don't recline, esp when backed up against the lav (looking at you, UA 737-900 row 5!). Then again, the rows in front of emergency exit rows don't recline, nor do the last row of Economy.

I asked the FA, it was meant to recline. And my neighbor did recline

My wife has approved H4 extension notice (i-797) and we just filed her first ever H4 EAD last week. She need to travel to India for medical reasons and she will need to have H4 visa stamped in order to immigrate to the US.
Our concern is, will it affect her i-765 application as she will receive a new i-94 and H4 Visa which will differ from already filed i-765?
In that case, does she have to wait out in India till her H4-EAD is processed in order to avoid i-94 mismatch?
Appreciate your help!

Planned a 30th bday trip to Rio for August and in the process I combined it with a friend (also celebrating her bday) since she cancelled her trip to Turkey.

Guests I invited already got their time approved and dates she suggested are more expensive than when we planned to go. Is it wrong to tell her I can't change it?

Anyone have any thoughts on working cross country from your firm? I’ve been offered a lateral role working remotely with a CA office with the understanding that if as a senior associate they’d be interested in considering me for partner I’d relocate and that I will travel to the office for 2 weeks a quarter to work with the team. Is this an awful idea? It seems like a dream come true for me but not sure if I’m screwing myself career wise.
