What’s the fastest way to get status with United right now? Any promotions? Haven’t traveled during Covid and lost my status, but will likely start flying soon. That is (a big) if Omicron doesn’t get out of control of course.

-United MileagePlus credit card gets you group 2 boarding ($95 annual fee, but if you fly twice or more it pays for itself in baggage alone)
-If you know someone with high status on United ask to be their companion, (their direct family such as spouse should not be companion as they will get the status of holder as long as they book the flight) being companion will give you Gold Status (group 1 boarding)

Hi everyone! Can anyone tell me what you make as a typical banquet/events manager for salary or per hour? I’ve worked for Marriott/Bonvoy at the Ritz and for the Curio Collection with Hilton as a bartender/server/banquets captain. Now I’m working for a privately owned hotel and as a manager role in Banquets/Events. Because of pandemic times, what is everyone else making?
