Best domestic airline to accrue miles on
Having just used all my accrued miles on a trip with the help of PointsPros, I am now back at basically mileage 0. We were faithful United people because that was where we have miles but our loyalty is up in the air now. Do you have a preferred domestic airline to earn miles on so that we can pick where start stockpiling again? As additional info, we use our miles for business class, mostly to Europe, and prefer to redeem for parter airlines within alliances rather than the U.S. carrier. I also have a paid business class Delta roundtrip to Johannesburg, so that gives me a jump there but with the value of Delta miles maybe that’s not a good idea to make my primary airline. Maybe the answer is to start earning parter airline miles directly when flying the U.S. carrier. Or maybe the answer is it doesn’t really matter what you fly domestically and I should just focus on having cards that transfer points the right places.
Looking forward to your thoughts!

In general, we typically recommend that unless you’re flying upwards of 50k miles a year domestically, you’re better off being loyalty agnostic, and instead leverage your spending with the right credit cards: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/12/04/miles-and-points-for-infrequent-flyers/[/URL]
