Worth it to spend 40mins in the car vs 20 to fly your airline of choice with top tier? Or switch airlines and status match to the closer airline/airport? (1K on UA at EWR 40min vs Delta at LGA 20min)

Depends what you prefer more. I’d say that Delta > United, EWR > LGA, but also how much you value your time!! Cause that’ll add up to like 45 minutes a week.

Overall the ride home is gonna suck. Might as well earn more points while doing it.

Typically I’ve also found that I always work after landing so it doesn’t really matter to me if I’m working in the car or working at home 🙃

Star Alliance > Sky Team, so if you’re looking to burn those miles somewhere cool greater chance with United and EWR.

Are United miles still more valuable than sky miles with the mileagePlus devaluation?

Yup

Do you really think that you’ll make it to LGA in 20mins? Are you in the parking lot now?

I used to call my Uber at LGA as soon as my wheels touched the runway. On some days, I’d still wait 15 min for it

Cons:

*Leadership that outwardly promote diversity and inclusion but internally only promote their favorites
*Manager(s) that manage from a place of ego vs. emotional intelligence
*Manager(s) allowed to gossip, lie and speak ill of female employees, both past and present
