Hotel is sold out, girl in front of me "I'm a gold member so I think I need to be upgraded" bish I'm platinum and I wasn't upgraded. Go to your room. 😡 #newbs
Do you have to inform a boss if you are working out of state? Planning on renting a place in Miami for the winter. No client travel, no problem right?
Those feelings of anger when you show up for your flight and the TSA Pre-✔️ line is longer and takes longer than regular security. 😡🤦🏼♀️
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!)
Need advice bc I am tired and not thinking straight. Connecting from BOS in JFK to ORD (I am NYC-based). ORD is pushing our flight back bc of confusion there. Do I go home now and fly tomorrow or wait
I feel selfish but I’m sick of financial goalposts moving. I make a good salary and hoped to travel in my 30s, but with COVID and inflation I feel like it is being taken away from me. Together my SO & I make ~$175k/year & honestly now it STILL isn’t enough. We are putting away 20%+ in savings/retirement & our retirement calculator said we still aren’t saving enough. A few years ago we would have been upper-middle class… now I feel like we are just more afloat than others but we are not thriving.
Hi, mum is flying alone from India to US on Monday. I booked her flight with emirates a while ago. She wants me to check if we can request for a wheelchair. Is it possible to add wheelchair now?
I recently purchased a flight with United for an upcoming trip but have to now cancel due to family health issues. If I receive the credit for the ticket, will it need to be used all at once, even if a future flight is cheaper? Or will I get the full credit amount to use on as many flights in the future within a given timeframe?
How can I get out of the contract from my realtor? I think we locked for 6months. She needs to travel out of country and she is handing it over to some one else from her brokerage. We are not comfortable with that. Before going to her, I would love to be informed about my options.
Seat screen and power outlet not functioning on a JFK-SJU Flight. First class! Should I be asking for points or not make a big deal out of it?
After a hellacious week that involved travel to multiple cities, running through DFW to (unsuccessfully) catch a connecting flight, and getting to see someone get arrested for DUI after side swiping my Uber, I caught a break today! Direct flight home was very delayed, so I was able to catch that instead of having a connection.
Do tickets purchased solely with skymiles receive MQMs and MQDs in 2021 on Delta? I saw Delta made an exception this year for award travel but was unclear on terminology used. When I go to purchase it says the estimated MQMs is zero if I pay with skymiles. Anyone with experience able to confirm?
Seattle Delta sky club FTW.
EY 🐠 - what kind of “tools” do you have for time and expenses? What company credit card? How is the reimbursement process on expenses- does the company pay the credit card directly?
What do I do if I just can’t take it anymore? Senior associate in corporate at a V10. I know my health is deteriorating (I lost 7! pounds this week) and every day is just too much.
Has anyone been downgraded on a purchased business class flight (using miles)? Flew Air Can and they switched the plane the day of and thus had less biz class seats. Is this normal? What comp is fair?
Applying for GSAP next year! I got performing above peers for client service and on par for firm initiative. Wondering if that will be okay from a screening standpoint for eligibility?

I’ve heard that IB’s are hiring a lot right now - I have an undergrad degree in Finance, but have worked on non-finance consulting projects over the last 4/5 years. I’m realizing I want to go a different way and IB, hard as it may be at this point, is a really essential experience for Finance.

I feel silly asking this question but does anyone have tips on finding motivation to study for the GMAT? After working til 8pm then eating dinner I just can't find motivation to open up my gmat books. Weekends I just sit on my phone looking for any distraction, and then when I finally start studying and get stumped by a question I call it quits. I procrastinate hard and just can't seem to get it together to prep. Any tips?
Do you think the tech industry cares if you have a MBA or should you focus on improving your skills?

Can’t contain my excitement! 🚀
Cheers to all the other HODLers 🍻

With this sort of nonsense, do you see why I might be just a bit skeptical of our government’s ability to control healthcare costs? And yes, both Republicans and Democrats are guilty here.
Some guy on my plane just passed 3million miles on American. If that ever happens to me 😵🔫
Whats the expectations around referring to someone as Significant Other (SO) vs a boyfriend? When I read significant I think of very long term partnership, marriage or engagement, but often posts use that to refer to people they are dating or short term bf, nothing ‘significant’
