Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....

Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”

Fellow Auditors, Since we all are aware that there has been a sudden pay rise of 20-30% in recent past (6M - 12M) specially for experienced staff to Manager level due to acute shortage of resources at ground level. Hence, I sometimes wonder as to who has borne all this extra cost so far. Is it the Equity Partners or the Client 🤔 In case Partners, than I really think that even though current hot market might have boon for the most but absolutely nightmare for the Partners group. Contd. below.
