2023.05.30 19:19 landalezjr Capital One travel portal consistently has incorrect United Airlines fare prices

I recently signed up for the Venture X card and have discovered that when searching for flights on their travel portal the fare prices for United Airlines are consistently anywhere $5-50 higher than booking directly with United. I checked flights with Delta and American as well and see no such issues with their fares.
I even called the Capital One Travel line to see if they were seeing the same prices and they confirmed the same incorrect fares. She even confirmed that most of their 24 hour price matches on flights were with United so clearly they know this is an issue.
I know Capital One's travel portal is powered by Hopper so the issues lie with them but have others found these issues as well?
This of course wouldn't have been an issue previously due to their 24 hour price match policy but now that they have downgraded this from a refund to a credit of the difference I feel like this sort of kills the card for me. I have used Chase's portal for years and never had issues like this so when searching for direct flights so I am kind of at a loss to understand.

I'm considering getting a capital one venture card. I'm curious if anyone has experience transferring rewards into American Airlines miles via British Airways (Avios)? How easy was it? Or is there a better way?

2023.05.30 17:20 helpmeloseweightgirl Fly delta and drive 2+ hrs or fly united to closer airport?

I recently started traveling a lot for work and got silver medallion status with delta. I usually fly into LGA/JFK, but I'm going to some new locations soon. One of these locations is near the Wilkes Barre Scranton Airport (~20 min). However Delta doesn't fly into this airport.
Would you book a different airline (United) and fly into the close airport? Or would you fly somewhere else (Newark, Philadelphia) and drive 2-3 hours?
Random side note: anyone else notice Delta flights are getting more expensive? With past travel usually Delta, United, and American were close in price (+/-$100) but now Delta is $300 more expensive. It's making it hard to book work travel with them... might have to switch to United.

Working on a Black Monday Murders art theme for Hitbox I’m having done!
As an enormous fan of the comic book series (hopefully to be finished soon!) I’ve done an arrangement of some of the artwork for an upcoming Hitbox I’m having made.
The button patterns were a surprising amount of fun, and it’s my first time working with Pixel Maps in Photoshop!

2023.05.30 08:35 vanelalegs Will AA price match a partner airline with the same exact itinerary?

I am looking at booking a ticket that is offered by both Qantas and AA. The itinerary is exactly the same because they are partner airlines. The international segments are on Qantas and the domestic are on American, so same flight numbers and everything. AA is selling the ticket for $500 more than Qantas. Does anyone have experience with this? I can just buy it with Qantas and pay $500 less for the same flight and AA will receive even less money for it I assume, or they could price match it and Qantas could receive less.
Thanks for any advice.

2023.05.30 07:23 Curiousaim 737 MAX 8, MCE worth it for 25$ flying 3 hours?

Doing a 3 hour flight from austin to vegas. Never flown with american airlines.
I would be flying with my gf, and am debating on spending 25$ per seat to get us MCE if it makes a noticeable difference in comfort.
She doesn't drink alcohol, and I'd probably only have 1-2 drinks.

2023.05.30 06:09 z399 24 things I’ve learned before turning 24 in 24 hours. (And in less than 24 words, any advice to me?)

  1. having a good support system (both financially and mentally) is a true privilege
  2. being gay is not always harder so much as it is different (depending on where you live)
  3. some friends may have different morals but their principles are more important
  4. as someone with an ethnically ambiguous appearance (but still white passing) some will be interested but some will also tokenize or fetishize you. you may also not be not white enough to fit into some spaces and overanalyzing it won’t make you any “whiter”.
  5. being gay in a straight world also applys to number 4
  6. homophobia isn’t black and white. sometimes people may not understand or at best tolerate us. this doesn’t mean their evil, just uneducated.
  7. you can not be someone’s type but still be attractive
  8. there’s a big difference between being kind and nice
  9. people who are less intelligent, less kind and more attractive will get ahead of you whether you like it or not
  10. most people gay men do coke but stay far way from Tina gays
  11. staying away from drugs is one of the best things you can do as a gay men
  12. you can go to college and still be a dumbass
  13. everyone gossips
  14. anyone who is super political is super fucking annoying.
  15. circuit music is shit
  16. traveling to 25 countries I can say without a doubt that American is not the best but also not the worst country
  17. getting muscular will give you attention from people who wouldn’t even say “hi” before your transformation
  18. my favorite countries are France, Japan and Turkey. all of them had a unique gay scene.
  19. American Airlines is worse than Spirit
  20. your friends, family and significant other aren’t perfect and neither are you.
  21. many people are insensitive.
  22. there is no such thing as safe sex, only safer sex. I have always used a condom and contracted Type 1 Herpes (genitally).
  23. avoid people with a “main character syndrome complex”
  24. I have been out since I was 11 and for everyone who told me I was too young to know I can definitely say I’m still into men.

2023.05.30 05:47 mjn9457 Comprehensive Guide To Ticketing in Japan

Comprehensive Guide To Ticketing in Japan
(I apologize in advance for the visible links, I did not figure out how to hyperlink until after I posted and it will not let me edit them! ^^)
Hello everyone! I’ve noticed an uptick in the number of posts on the subreddit asking how to ticket in Japan, as Seventeen is having an increasing number of events and concerts here. I thought I’d make a comprehensive post about what you need to know about ticketing in Japan! This guide will cover concerts, fanmeetings, the Seventeen museum, the Seventeen Cafe, and pop-up shops. I will also tell you how to sign up for the memberships in Japan. Many of these use the same type of ticketing system. Here is the official Seventeen Japan site that every event is posted on, and they also have a Seventeen Japan Twitter that announces events and posts links when it is time to ticket.
I’ll start with these, because this is the most frequent post I see on this subreddit! In Japan, ticketing is done through a lottery system. Seventeen uses Lawson Ticket (ローチケット)and has for the past few years. There are multiple rounds of lottery, starting with the fanclub, then CaratMobile, then general sales. Both the fanclub and Carat Mobile have multiple draws, as you can see here on the most recent fanmeeting ticketing page.
The options, under ticketing, are as follows:
Fanclub Premium Seat/regular seat lottery
Carat Mobile Premium Seat/regular seat lottery
Second fanclub lottery (Regular seats + annotated seats)
Second Carat Mobile lottery (Regular seats + annotated seats)
Lawson L-encore card holders (Regular seats + annotated seats)
General Ticketing (Not lottery, first come first serve)
Annotated seats are regular seats, but they may have some stage equipment or something like that in the way, so your view could possibly be obstructed.
You can also pay a monthly fee to become a Lawson premium member. This ups your chances of winning, though I don't know for sure how much it actually helps! If anyone wants to do this or needs help with it I can make a different post for it, I ran out of photo space on this post (Reddit limits to 20 pictures per post)!
Lawson Ticket
When doing fanclub or carat mobile ticketing, Lawson will ask for your membership number before you can apply to anything. If you are not a member of the fanclub or mobile, you will not be able to apply for these lottery tickets :( In the past there have been general lotteries, but there was not one for this fanmeeting. For Be The Sun, there was a lottery for general Lawson members that anyone could apply for.
To do any lottery ticketing, you will have to sign up for a Lawson Ticket account. It will ask for a phone number when you sign up. This is where you sign up . When you click this, it will ask for an email address, password, and to accept the terms of service. It looks like this.
Once you click the box at the bottom, the blue button will light up, and then you can press next (the button on the right). It will then send you an email, and once you confirm it you can keep going.
This is what the email will look like, make sure to check different mailboxes in case it goes to spam.
Click the link, and it will now ask for your password again. After that, we’re on to account information. If you do not have an address in Japan, use the address you are currently staying at, or have a friend lend you theirs. They will not send the tickets to the address, so you don’t have to worry about that. Just get something in there! The page looks like this, and I put in English what you need to put in! PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS IS ALL RIGHT!!! If you are selected for tickets, you may get your name checked at the gate on the day of the concert, and if your name doesn’t match up they could refuse you entry. They check every name for premium seats, so if you are applying for those please be extra careful! For your katakana name just look up a Japanese katakana chart and try to match your english name as best as possible, it doesn’t really matter because your name will be printed in both English and Katakana on the ticket.
Don’t forget your last name goes first, then your first name!
For this tutorial I used one of my family’s American phone numbers and it took it with no questions, so just put your real phone number in and it should be fine!
After this page, you have finished signing up!
Now that we have our account, we can apply for tickets. Back to the Seventeen Japan page screenshotted earlier in the post, there will be open links when it is time to apply for tickets. The boxes with red lettering under tickets will turn into links when it is time to ticket, and there should also be an active link in the description box when you push the arrow on the side for more information.
For when the tickets are open, Lawson has a guide for you, here is the link. Because you’ll come straight from the Seventeen website it’ll dump you straight on the ticketing page, so you can ignore the first step!
After you apply to the lottery, you will receive confirmation emails for your entries. They look like this.
It will tell you on the email when they will announce the winners. These results came out on March 24th at 11 am. You can see your results on My Page on the Lawson ticket website at that time, but usually the servers are so crowded you will never be able to log in. Other than that, and what I usually do, is wait for the emails. You will get an email telling you if you have gotten the tickets or not.
A losing email is on the left, and a winning one is on the right. As you can see by the time stamps, the winning one comes in a few minutes later. Since Seventeen started using Lawson ticketing, it has been my experience that the winning emails always come late. If you get two fail emails together and are waiting for a few minutes on a third, it most likely means you've won!!! :D
The word signaling you've won is 当選. It is in the second line of the email towards the end of the sentence. In the losing email, the third line ends with できませんでした which means you failed.
Since I chose to pay at the convenience store, I had to go pay at a Lawson using the Loppi machine (instructions here . To pick up tickets, you need the phone number you used, as well as the number under the artist name (I blanked mine out). The first date in March in this email told me when I needed to pay by (March 28th at 11:00 pm) and the second date in May is when I could go pick up my tickets (from May 12th at 1pm to to March 27th at 11pm). When you go to pay, the cashier will give you a slip of paper that shows you paid. Make sure to hang onto this!! I always hold onto my receipt too just in case. When you go to get your tickets, you just give the cashier that paper, and they print the tickets out for you. As you can see, the pickup date ran all the way until the day before the last day of the fanmeeting, so if you aren’t in Japan until right at the date then that is okay! Just make sure to pick them up at any Lawson before your time runs out! You won’t know your seats until you pick up your tickets.
General ticketing is not a lottery. You will need to get onto the fastest wifi you can and fight everybody tooth and nail for these tickets. I have tried general ticketing for 5-6 years, and I have never been successful. Lol… But I will cheer all you general sales people on!! You got this!! Make sure to follow the steps above for an account well before the date, as you will get tripped up and miss your ticketing chance if you don’t pre-register. Also be sure to have your debit/credit card entered, as I have heard of much more success from those who pay by card rather than convenience store pay.
Before I get into fanclub and carat mobile, I want to let you know that if you do not have an address or phone number in Japan, getting into these is basically impossible. The fanclub sends you mail, so you can’t just put any address in. Carat Mobile is only available on phones, and you have to have a Japanese phone number to actually have an account. I’m sorry :(
The Fanclub does its sign ups through Lawson, and you pay a year’s sum when you sign up. Go to the Seventeen Japan website and click the button on the top left of this picture!
Scroll down to the white box at the bottom, and make sure the little box above it is checked to agree to Lawson terms.
You’ll go on to Lawson, where you come to this page.
The button on the left takes you to the application, and the button on the right takes you to what’s included in the membership. Click the left button!
On the new page, scroll to the bottom and agree to terms, then click the blue button on the right and login to your Lawson account.
The next page will ask for your details. Because you already signed up for an account it should be automatically filled in. Just make sure everything is right, as again they will be checking your name for premium or VIP seats. You also get a Carat ID card in the mail when you sign up for the fanclub, so make sure everything is spelled correctly! Don’t forget that your last name goes first, then your first name!
When you press next, it will take you to a page that asks your bias and your favorite unit. Members are listed in fanchant order, the units are 1. Vocal 2. Hip Hop 3. Performance. Choose and press next! :)
On the next page, it will confirm that all of your information is correct. Please triple check that everything is correct!!
Next it will ask for a payment method. Credit card is on the left.
Put in your card details, and you’re finished! You’ll get an email with your fanclub member number and a link, press the link and it will prompt you to set your password. Here’s what the email looks like.
You are now signed up!! Your ID card and pin will be in the mail within two months :)
Within the past two years the fanclub has introduced ticket trading, where if someone cannot go to the concert but has tickets, they can put them up for sale. The Seventeen Japan Twitter usually posts when this becomes available, and you can only access it if you are a fanclub member. Tickets are available for face value + handling fees. I have not done this before, so I have no advice or guidance for this part! I am sorry! I assume it will be mostly the same as the other ticketing in this post though, so hopefully if you choose this route you can use something from here to help.
Carat Mobile
Now for Carat Mobile. Carat Mobile is a better option for those who cannot or do not want to pay the larger fanclub fee all at once. The monthly fee is 550 yen, or about $3.92 usd. Carat Mobile is only available on your phone, so scan the qr code from the website here and continue to sign up on your phone.
Once you scan the QR code, click the three bars in the top right of the screen. Then, click the button under "Gallery" to go to make a new account.
Once you are here, it will ask for an email address and for you to accept the terms of service. Check your email for a sign up email. The email looks like this. The link will expire in 24 hours, so make sure to complete registration right away!
It will ask for these things, in order:
Password (choose yours)
Password confirmation
Last name
First name
Last name (Katakana)
First name (Katakana)
Birthday (YY/MM/DD)
Phone number
Address (Zip code > Prefecture > Street number + Apartment building name + Apartment number)
Once you finish putting these in, push confirm (bottom button) and it will take you to a payment site. Press credit card, put your silly numbers in, your name, agree to the terms of service, and press the very bottom button. It will take you to the finishing page, where it will give you your member number. The number will be seven numbers starting with an M.
You are now a Carat Mobile member! Congrats! It will bill you monthly.
Unofficial ticketing
If you lose all the lotteries or cannot access Carat Mobile or the Japanese Fanclub, you can go the unofficial way: Twitter or proxy sites! These tickets are much riskier, as Japanese venues randomly check names on tickets. If you are checked and the name doesn’t match your ID, the staff will turn you away and you will not be able to enter the venue.
If you want to look for tickets on twitter, here is your format. I’ll use the Love Fanmeeting as the example. Type this into the twitter search bar.
SEVENTEEN 2023 JAPAN FANMEETING 'LOVE' セブチ ペンミ ファンミ チケット
求 (want)▶︎5/28 東京ドーム 1枚 (date you want + how many, this one says tokyo dome 1 ticket)
譲 (will give) ▶︎定価+手数料 (list price + handling fee)
Or switch it around, but it should give you the same result! I.e.
求 (want)▶︎ 定価+手数料 (list price + handling fee)
譲 (will give) ▶︎ 5/28 東京ドーム 1枚 (tokyo dome 1 ticket)
Listings look like this.
Once again, Premium Seats/VIP seats will ALWAYS check your name. DO NOT BUY THESE SECOND HAND!!
People make burner accounts just for selling, like this one is.
They are asking for list price and handling fee, but some people ask for you to name a price. These tickets will be very expensive, as it is competitive and these people usually have many people asking for tickets.
When you’re looking for tickets, make sure that the characters are in the correct place.
What the person in the tweet is looking for is under this kanji: 求
What the person in the tweet is in possession of is under this kanji: 譲
When buying tickets from twitter, the people will usually meet you at the venue with the tickets. They should take them out and show you to prove they are real. You then hand them the money. This is probably the safest way to go if you’re doing unofficial sales, as other sites may make you pay in advance. If they are a scammer, your money is lost :( Unlike other countries, there are no official resale sites. Be careful, and godspeed!
Seventeen Cafe
Now for all the other smaller events you can go to!! The Seventeen Museum and Cafe happen once a year. Each time it happens, there is a new webpage for it.
I’ll use the most recent cafe, 2022 Winter Camping, to show how to get tickets. Here is the link to see! First, you’ll have to make an account with the company that runs the cafes.
At the top right of the page, press the left button. The first page is terms and services, accept these. It will ask you for your email, and will then take you to this page.
Make sure to remember last name, first name! To make sure foreigners can also access this, I made a new account with an overseas phone number, and it worked! :) It will take you to the info confirmation page next, where you just make sure everything is right. There are two buttons, a black one on the left and a white one on the right. Even if the colors change, their positions should stay the same. Click the one on the right.
And you’re finished! Now you can make a reservation. Weekends and Friday evenings fill up very fast, so if you can’t go on weekdays get to reservations right when they start! The Seventeen Japan Twitter will announce when they start.
Hover over the reservation tab and pick the store you want to go to. They are usually in English, just make sure you pick the right one!!
Scroll to the bottom of the page and it will show you the available dates.
I can’t click on any because it is over, but when you click on the date it will show you the available times. Pick your time, how many people you want ( I think it’s up to two), and finish the registration. It will send you an email. This is what the email looks like! If you chose to pay at the convenience store, it will also have the number you need to input into the machine to pay at the store. You usually get random goods when you go as well, so it will tell you that too.
On the day of your reservation, show up about 5-10 minutes early. Other Carats will start lining up then too. The staff will go down the line and confirm your tickets. Go to “my page” on the website and click the first button.
It will come up with a QR code that the staff will scan. When it has gone through, the webpage will change, so it can’t just be a screenshot! You have to show the actual webpage. When you enter the cafe or when you sit down you will get to randomly draw your benefits! For this cafe it was a random plastic card and a card case.
Study the menu and things beforehand, as when you line up the staff will give you a clipboard where you pick what you want to eat and drink. Each of the members have a meal, and there are also drinks with coasters. You pick which member you want on the coaster when you check which drink you want on the paper. The staff will also give you small cards with numbers on them when you sit down. They will call each number up to 4 at a time to go to the merch area and purchase what you want. This is your one time to grab merch, you can’t go back up so choose wisely and quickly!! If you’re very brave, you can try to trade with other carats at the cafe for your bias. You can usually see whose bias is whose because of the photocards and merch each person brings. I love going to the cafes, it’s so fun to see other carats and enjoy the cafe with them :) They play music videos and a video that the sebongies shot for the cafe, they tell you to have fun and talk about the theme of the cafe. You have an hour and a half to sit! If you have the chance to, please go!! Have fun! :)
Seventeen Museum
Getting tickets for the Museum is a lot like the cafe. If you want weekend/Friday night tickets, get reservations early!
Museum tickets are on Lawson ticket. Log in before we start to streamline the process!
The museums are announced on the Seventen Japan Twitter! This was the page for the 2022 museum.
This is where you went for tickets. The top links are for those who want to go in the earlier month (September) and below was for those who missed ticketing for September or could go in the later months (October and November). If you don’t want to do it online, you can also buy tickets when you get to the museum, but they may turn you away if the time slot is filled.
Once you click a link, it will have you accept Lawson terms of service. Click the right button to continue. You will go through the same process as you would with concert tickets. Make sure you pick the right venue! They have merch for the museum, and this time there was a random draw when you enter for one bromide picture of a member (I pulled cheol hehe). Because it’s the same as the concert tickets, please refer to the concert ticket section if you need help there!
Pop up stores
When there is a comeback and before a concert, there are pop up stores. There are albums, concert merch, and other things, as well as a photo spot to take pictures. Same as the cafe and museum, get there very fast for weekend and Friday night spots. I’ll use the most recent Love popup for this example! These tickets were sold through weverse. The following picture is the button for making reservations!
Next page, push the big purple button to go on.
Though the buttons/colors will change for each pop-up shop, the words on the buttons shouldn't change, so for other events just make sure the kanji lines up!
It will take you to weverse login. After login, scroll to the bottom of the page, accept terms of service, and click the bottom button, it says the same as the button above, お申込むに進む .
The next page asks for your information!
Small Japanese lesson for furigana! In Japanese, there are multiple alphabets; hiragana (furigana), katakana, and kanji. Non-Japanese names will be in katakana, which is the way that foreign words are written in Japanese. Hiragana is the basic Japanese alphabet, and furigana is written above kanji to indicate its pronunciation. I feel like the easiest thing for those who do not know Japanese is to use a hiragana generator. Here's one I found with a quick google search.
Okay back to ticketing! After you confirm your details, this is the next page; selecting your tickets. Because the shop is finished, we can’t see the dates and times anymore, but I’ll tell you what’s up.
So pick your date and time and finish! You don’t have to pay to get in, but slots go so fast, so be quick with your picks! :)
And that's what I have! If I've missed something or anyone else wants to add anything please put it in the comments!! I made this to help you all participate in these events, and I hope you all get in to the things you want to go to. This took me about four hours, so I hope it helps at least one person lol! Let's keep loving and supporting Seventeen for a long time^^

2023.05.30 05:38 Titan828 Looking for sources and or an accident report for a plane crash in Kano in 1973 which killed 176 people, making it Nigeria's worst plane crash, and at the time was the worst civilian plane crash

Hello all, ever since I can first remember I have always been fond of aviation and one passion I have is reading about plane crashes and near crashes to know what happened, why it happened and what changes were made to make the aviation industry safer.
Many years ago I happened to read the Wikipedia page about the Kano air disaster in 1973. I never thought much of it but recently I read through it and wanted to read the accident report which would give information about the background of the flight, the pilots' experience, how many people were onboard, what happened, and any recommendations made. It turns out that despite this being the worst civilian plane crash at the time with 176 fatalities, Nigeria's worst plane crash, and probably investigators from the United States (NTSB) assisted in the investigation because it was an American made plane, if an accident report was issued, it has likely been lost. I asked for any references on the aircrashinvestigation subreddit and got some additional sources but not really useful.

What happened

For anyone unfamiliar with the story, this is what I do know about the flight, some parts are just educated guesses. Early morning on January 22nd 1973, an Alia Royal Jordanian Airlines Boeing 707 was chartered by Nigeria Airways to fly 193 Muslim pilgrims from Jeddah, Saudia Arabia back home to Lagos as part of the Hajj. The 707 was just two years old at the time. There were 9 crew members onboard for a total of 202 people onboard. As far as I know there doesn't appear to be any information on what the flight number was. The Captain of the flight was 53 year old John Waterman, an American with over 22,000 hours total air time. He lived in Beirut, Lebanon with his wife and children and had been flying in the Middle East for 20 years . The remaining 8 crew members probably were the co-pilot and the flight engineer with 6 flight attendants. The airplane likely departed for Lagos at dawn and at some point during the flight the pilots received information that there was bad weather at Lagos and they had to divert to Kano, Nigeria.
According to a source I found, hot winds from the Sahara, called harmattan, a cool dry wind that blows from the northeast or east in the western Sahara, were present at Kano that morning. Large amounts of dust and sand are collected that the sky becomes hazy and visibility drastically reduces. Harmattan is the strongest from late November to mid-March. Just after 0900 local time (the plane would have been in the air for probably 4 hours by now), the pilots began their approach to Kano. On final approach they encountered the harmattan and had to go around for another attempt. On their second approach at 0930 local time, the plane touched down nose wheel first, instead of its main wheels first. The nose wheel struck a depression on the runway and collapsed. Then the right main gear collapsed, followed by the left gear: both collapses ruptured the fuel tanks. The plane then spun 180 degrees and slid off the runway. A fire then broke out which completely destroyed the airplane and only 26 people (23 passengers and 3 crew members) out of the 202 people onboard survived (One source in 1975 says that 33 people survived). Among the survivors was Captain Waterman. Since he survived the crash, it's quite likely that the co-pilot and the flight engineer also survived.
A short video of the remains of the aircraft taken later: 1973 Kano air disaster Alia Royal Jordanian Airlines Boeing 707 [JY-ADO] crash Aftermath Footage - YouTube
Two weeks after the crash the Jordanian authorities insisted that a depression in the runway was to blame while the Nigerians insisted that pilot error was the cause as Waterman had ignored orders from the tower not to land due to the strong winds.
In 1975, the Nigerian government tribunal who investigated the crash recommended that Captain Waterman be prosecuted for culpable homicide and be banned from ever flying into Nigeria again as he piloted the airplane in a reckless manner. The Nigerian government agreed with the tribunals findings. I was not able to find any information on whether Waterman was prosecuted or what happened to him afterwards. However, I have found no information on whether a depression in the runway was to blame or the nose wheel broke off because he landed the plane too hard and nose wheel first.
Getting back to my question, it looks like an investigation was conducted, but their findings were never put into an accident report and if they were they were never submitted to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
If anyone has more information about this crash or is able to find any additional sources I would love to read them.

I have an interview with American Airlines in Dallas at the end of June. What are some of the biggest tips? Also, do you fly back home the same day as the interview or do you have the option to fly back the next day?

2023.05.30 03:53 MattRoombaSucks Welp, we gave it a shot.... and are probably done, but let me show you something cool.

May mean absolutely nothing, but if there is a caveat, this is what a lot of champions have to go through to get to the top. The pain is there and will stick, however the experience is invaluable. Let's not get too down on our boys, they aren't done, we have a great opportunity to keep making deep runs and hopefully lift the Cup.

2023.05.30 03:50 AnimeFtwTv I Have Never Felt So Angry At My Job Until Today!

So at my job today doing my work like usual. Then I saw 2 college grad nobodies in operations vest coming in as new AMs....I was so angry...The reason is not me getting the AM as I think I should(due to me having a bachelors and a near 2 year tenure). But the fact I have 2 very reliable and hard working PAs that have a pretty solid Tenure I'd say 3 years but I am not 100% positive. The point is Amazon doesn't value the so called earning trust principal as it's stated among the 16. Amazon doesn't value loyalty and hard work....This is the most demotivating, insulting, and most unethical crap I have ever seen. This is a company I no longer want to work for and soon next month I will be flying to Dallas for my F2F interview with American Airlines. Shame on you Amazon...Shame on you for being unethical and not having morals towards those that sacrifice much for you.
