On a much lighter topic than other posts: how many of you travel with 2 pairs of shoes? I always do in the summer (ballerinas mainly), now transitioning to an adorable pair of stacked heel booties and wondering if I’m setting myself up for foot pain. (After 6 years of this you’d think I’d know - but I always struggle in winter!)
Does Centurion Lounge access justify the Amex Platinum fee? 80% of foreseeable travel will be through IAH, DFW, and LAS.
I have the Amex Bonvoy card ($95 annual fee) and am thinking of canceling it. Not really sure if it's worth keeping it considering how little the Marriott points are worth.
One downside I see is that I have had this card since '97 (my first card) and I read that credit score considers average age of cards so am concerned that might take a hit. Thoughts on canceling?
Secondly, what are the best cashback cards nowadays if I don't want to pay an annual fee?
Anyone have experience flying with pets on Delta? If they’re small do they have to remain in kennel the whole flight?
I flew for the first time at the weekend and felt comfortable doing it even though I was so nervous before. I flew delta because I knew they’d leave the middle seat blocked and picked a flight which was empty. It was an a321 and maybe had 50 people on it! Super impressed.
Avis at Lax sucks a fat one! Been waiting for the shuttle for 20 minutes to take me to the airport.
Any recommendations for travel backpacks? I’ll be spending ~1.5 months around Europe and SE Asia, so looking for something durable with good support!

People who work in consulting.. how do you manage to travel to your home country? I’m in a project right now that ends in a month. It’s so hard to get a drop box appointment or a visa interview appointment for stamping and of course cannot travel in the middle of a project. It’s challenging to plan around this. Would love some insights into how y’all plan around visa appointments, projects and utilization.
