Airline Alliances out of Orlando Mostly and some PBI

Airline Alliances out of Orlando Mostly and some PBI

  1. Anonymous

    I have been a delta loyalist for years… even with the constant devaluations was curious if i was making the right move with staying them for this year.
    I fly about 6 times personal. and upcoming gig I will be traveling 2x a month to canada.. so I should be able to hit the highest tier with any airline regardless of what I choose… just want to make sure im making the right decision before the delta amex fee comes up in a few weeks.

    [USER=1537]@relidtm[/USER] — Welcome! I guess it depends on what benefits you’re enjoying with Delta, or what perks you’d like to leverage going forward. Have you thought about that at all?

    Also, what other travel do you have planned? I’d guesstimate 24 trips from Orlando to Toronto at about 50k flown miles, which would be mid-tier status on most airlines, so that’s a consideration too.

    sorry probably should have been more info …
    I was delta Platinum before a few years ago for another job since then my job in between required no travel and this one I will be definitely traveling at minimum to these 2 locations… (once a month)I saw united goes non-stop through star alliance air Canada so if i do code share I can probably still get those elite miles… I figure with these 2 trips I will get about 100k a year.
    I am going to Vancouver and Toronto once a month for the next 12 months for sure… I also usually do one trip to brazil a year as well as one to san diego.. the rest is random what my wife wants to do … also Ive been visiting this site for a while just made an account 🙂 and thanks for contributing such good things 🙂

    And as far as delta perks they seem to be dwindling from what I read… I’ve been gold as I have had many roll over mqm.. but at the same time, I haven’t noticed that many upgrades .. I think in the 6 flights I had domestic last year I got 2.

    [USER=1537]@relidtm[/USER], in the end it comes down to what you want. The general consensus is that DL runs a very solid operation with a FF flyer program that is very hard to stomach. The other thing to consider is that at 100k miles you will not be able to crack the top level of their program which needs 125k to be Diamond. AA is probably at the next level operationally with a FF program that is attractive but is soon to devalue. UA is probably last operationally but has a very nice FF program even though some of the mileage costs are high and has access to the largest alliance. Also in your case, you would benefit from direct flights. You’ll have to pick what is most important to you from those factors and go with a program. Good luck!

    Yeah I agree completely I have the delta platinum card now because they tend to have a lot of direct flights when I go with them or alaska… I can do the 50k spend a year to get the bonus mqm.. guess ill stay with it… there is nothing that is direct to vancover so for one flight that could change in a few months (happens all the time) guess ill stay with delta.
