uyhyswwoc2d
you know the restaurant just when you clear main security?
rroyaiawg2d
literally where you have to make a left/right decision or you’ll walk into it
lnjovzhzde2d
ohh yeah
wlaeewpjtp2d
never eaten there though
affkdwlvm2d
they’re a priority pass lounge
akvclxtyfm2d
oh man
pjevnyoue2d
so it’s free booze and free food
hhcvucxfzh2d
that’s good to know
mqbarlrnz2d
up to the $ limit
cogxiskxgx2d
I do have a CSR
eqathpbgi2d
and for a while the little PDX shops were _also_ priority pass even though they’re just those little gift shops
caksdjywp2d
so you could get a ‘visit’ of $28 each
ufsftxyyf2d
and unlimited guests
nbtgqoulg2d
I made out _real_ well there
styljihvlz2d
too bad that’s not the case anymore 😅
mjdypnqqp2d
still $90 of product
siqhnfbph2d
and they have 3 locations in PDX
bwfngucoq2d
or at the time they did
lmegyyyif2d
and each location is its own visit
ltswbyzgr2d
so credit each time
psbzfqlmu2d
i think they closed the loophole
xnoaqngnu2d
but it was so fun for a while man
tsutjhnqk2d
who knew $42 of bee pollen chocolate would taste better when it’s free
lucvutyuy2d
also do you not have your PP? Now’s a great time to get it
hzkalyktwx2d
oh I have one, but I haven’t gone out of PDX much since I’ve had it. I usually go through SFO or SEA.
bmyprnpclv2d
I hate SEA with a passion
olbfpxoyjt2d
the airport, not the city
iykgqdrmvd2d
lol #1 Portland product ever
uicliobrq2d
the lines are long if you don’t have clear/precheck/global entry
yalzaxxdg2d
and it’s kind of confusingly laid out
ikdbdrdtz2d
I used to do a lot of work in redmond so I’ve flown in and out of there more than i can count
eiyuwwctpp2d
yeah Seattle is what pushed me to finally break down and get my Nexus card which includes PreCheck
htbaynxus2d
do you have clear? I recommend it… or I guess anymore all lines will be short
sjkztzsth2d
man, clear’s gonna have a bad year potentially
bwzvhyxsow2d
nope, just Nexus/GE/Pre
eegnidacsd2d
Is clear worth it on top of those?
aadqfidjy2d
up until now, absolutely
nlriqfnel2d
true story I flew out of MCO last year, and the _with precheck_ line was 90 minutes long
ntlqcpeoz2d
with clear, I got through in 2 minutes flat
wiokrtikt2d
that stat is from the monitors in MCO
fkcvljhask2d
wow that’s insane
ektqrcvhv2d
when I’ve gone through DFW, same thing.. 15 minutes with pre… just a second with clear
eayfxevwjf2d
I thought Seattle was bad with my 30min precheck lines
qaqomwaojr2d
might have to look into this depending on how travel lines are post-covid
ncpblzjoa2d
clear at SEA is maybe 120 seconds
rygtlvasi2d
yeah they’ll either be so short you don’t need it.. or even worse because of social distancing making the lines move slower
mzhbxnqms2d
I have a massive ego that needs tending, so I also like the “I’m here!” of showing up and being walked to the front of the precheck line and being next in line by a nice uniformed agent who declares I’m a VIP
jblsjajzfi2d
😂 feels good man
kcfkqojzz2d
LOL
zeqjkmhsw2d
but seriously.. I did clear on the way back through PHX and they accommodated my respirator no questions asked
yxpllfmhre2d
wow, I could have used that with all my trips departing from SEA the last few years
rshrwbocp2d
you can get it for $99 through the simple expedient of clicking the link on the delta website
nmleyspmn2d
otherwise it’s $189 for the same damn thing
inbqcydqr2d
lol
jepzafwnt2d
but i expect they’ll have a killer lifetime deal
zlqrawbjwo2d
ohh good tip, assuming they exist after the world stops falling apart 😅
dfexjdjcx2d
Lets just say when this is all over, upgrades are gonna clear real easy for everyone on your primary airline alliance
snjlomdoi2d
CX only flew 500 people one day last week. Their flight load was sub 10%
qtbcdwlvc2d
my neighbor works for AA and they’ve been sending flights out of Boise with a flight load of 4 people total.
bvpvpnehf2d
i.e the pilots and the cabin crew.
djjbscgapf2d
that’s how my flight to PDX from Denver was on my way back here, was insane
mtjidpsura2d
barely anyone on the flight
fetqtmyem2d
yep
ffmhfohlq2d
I wore full PPE on the way to avoid any issues.
syqbmzdhz2d
The FA’s were mostly asking where they could buy some
idcdcbyvo2d
sad state of affairs
lkvnknauvh2d
yeah it was sad to see they didn’t even have masks available to use
criruwese2d
AA pilots are getting a sweet deal
nqknmdlgn2d
FA’s and ground station staff.. not so much
aahkklindd2d
what kind of deal are the pilots getting?
ifvbyxjff2d
so you get 3 choices
buwajnqjp2d
• Voluntary Extended Leave of Absence — pilots can take an unpaid leave of absence that can last up to 12 months; pilots will still accrue length of service and receive benefits, but won’t accrue sick leave or vacation time
• Voluntary Short-Term Leave of Absence — pilots can take advantage of one month, three month, or six month options, during which they’ll be paid for 55 hours per month of flying; pilots will still accrue sick leave, vacation time, and seniority
• Voluntary Permanent Leave of Absence — pilots who are 62 or older can choose to essentially retire early, and they’ll be paid for 50 hours of flying per month until the mandatory retirement age of 65
qrmmbsrhwf2d
oh wow, no joke
nngfdixfot2d
especially the last one. retire early and we’ll still pay you for 3 more years
gjcenoosk2d
the “55 hours” payment is around $17k/mo
ybyldmcsut2d
damn
pmgleshyg2d
that’s for 777/787 pilots
lwiuhixyj2d
obviously regionals make a lot less
mvbfzomufh2d
it’s too bad they don’t have a similar deal available to the other employees
rbyyewahzz2d
or at least something
mzrufhsnn2d
the FA’s were basically told they could get deal #1
mszprjndr2d
or take PTO
ixubfqeba2d
until they exhaust it
vnwkopqdg2d
same for ground staff
twkploruls2d
uff, and FA’s/ground staff aren’t making $17k a month and likely won’t be able to float for 12 months
prpqipgfy2d
yah
scvqpthuw2d
and the senior folks are gonna have a bad time
aewdrhlef2d
auctioning off their shifts is less likely to happen i think
szlquxaab2d
so they’ll have to actually fly their routes
pypjntszbc2d
I didn’t even know that was a thing with FA’s
iskuptrbjp2d
auctioning off shifts
fokkkhngh2d
so basically, when you’re senior enough.. you get magical abilities
msodmudba2d
the big one is to just bid for long hauls
biykdtnsj2d
like.. if you are an AC FA and you bid the YYZ>EZE (with a stop in SCL) you’re gonnna end up with a 3 day paid break in EZE on the airlines dime because of how the schedules work out
dboqmspwl2d
equally, you can just give up those primo shifts and be ‘part time’ and play with your hours
yooaazdar2d
who doesn’t want a 3 day paid vacation in london, tokyo, south am, etc?
hyvpjbndy2d
hilarously, apple used to consider the bidding app (smartpref) as a video game in terms of category
emcckqwcs2d
which, in a way, it is
lduwgplkm2d
you gamble for routes
payfvtmwnu2d
ohh que interesante, that’s not a bad gig when times are good
