AerClub continues to lurch from bad to worse

It’s a fucking joke. Unless it’s last minute, my work related travel is booked through our admin team. They have my Aer Club number and it appears on my tickets, however I never seem to get any tier credits or Avios points for flights booked this way. When I log in and book personal travel directly on the website the tier credits and Avios appear on my account relatively quickly. I couldn’t be arsed manually requesting for the points to be added to my account. A clusterfuck.

Just get a lackey to manually request them for you. Simple

A hairy enough commute earlier to the Grand Duchy for week long planning for 2’18. The propeller powered Lux Air plane had a few hairy moments taking off and landing but what took the biscuit was our company affiliated Mercedes taxi having a blow out on the motorway to Lux city in the pissings of rain without a spare tyre in the boot. Not cool. A good 45 mins of small talk before his colleague arrived to ferry me onwards. Tomorrow is a new day

Do you believe in the nonsense that was spouted?

Those multi nationals inflict some shit on employees.

Waste of money. Why didn’t you have a video conference?


#1535

they don’t have proper broadband in oireland

GO paid for it. There was a workshop element to it so wouldn’t work over Skype. Good networking chance too.


#1537

Oh, how I loathe you expense report.


#1538

Is it a purpose built expenses application you’re using or a dirty spreadsheet solution?

A pain either way I suppose


#1539

Ye not on expensify? It’s the biz.


#1540

Would you not get your PA to do it for you?


#1541

Are you sure he isn’t the PA doing it for a superior?


#1542

Started using Concur recently. Its the tits.


#1543

I’d charitably describe it as a bespoke expenses solution.
