Systemwide upgrades on AA: They have to be on flights that say "American Airlines" when you buy them/can't be used for a partner like British Airways, right? Looking at a Europe trip, want to clarify
Can fellow fish share any good promotions going on at Marriott/Spg and delta, AA and united ? Seems like am not getting enough points for my weekend trips
I see tons of posts on here about how travel will not got back to normal and I completely disagree. Leading workshops in person with a white board, easily answering questions from different departments with little coordination (since your onsite don’t always need to plan a meeting), observing workflows in person to understand current state can not and is not getting replaced by zoom. I would say the effective rate is at 80/90% but the cost of travel is well worth the extra 10-20%.
PSA - those who are so close to Marriott lifetime platinum elite should work on getting the status by end of year. If you do this you will be grandfathered into lifetime platinum premier
If you are doing a full day of travel for a client meeting, what do you bill? A full day rate?
I’m frequently upgraded to first class on delta (platinum status).... do I get access the the sky lounge if I’m upgraded?
AA concierge key vs UA Global Services. Which is better? Anyone have both? Does Delta have something similar (invitation only status above top tier)?
Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....
Anyone (or knows someone) that lives in Dallas and flies with United or Delta? Is it somewhat convenient or not at all? I dislike AA and am thinking of switching

At the beginning of the month I accepted a job offer that was ok but not ideal (salary was on target and a good title, sign on bonus but not really the work I want to do or the direction in which I want to take my career). Pretty much the day after I accepted another company with a bigger brand name approached me. I told them I was talking/negotiating but haven't accepted yet. I want to tell them the truth but want to keep the door open. What do I say/do? I fear I won't like my new job...

This might be a dumb question but when folks say max out 401k contributions, do they mean the full 19.5k per year? I usually do the 5% to get my company match.
2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?

Being the only expert around? Hey everyone, I’m looking to head in-house in the next 12 months, but I work in a specialized area with v few openings. I just noticed a job posting for a senior counsel role at a startup. This would be my first in-house role so I was wondering if anyone could speak to their experience as the only expert/specialist in their area at a company? Recognize it’s a massive growth opportunity but also scared of the big jump in responsibility/no safety net.
