AAdvantage or BA Executive Club?

AAdvantage or BA Executive Club?

  1. Bashley

    Hello,
    I’m a British expat living in the U.S. pondering whether to stay loyal to the Exec Club or focus more on AAdvantage membership.
    I have 1,700 lifetime tier points (mostly irrelevant), utilize the BA Chase card on all transatlantic bookings, but my status has flip-flopped as I only fly for leisure and do not take business trips. Currently a Bronze member (Ruby).
    As a U.S. resident, would I be better off focusing on membership with American for domestic and international flights, applying miles to AAdvantage as opposed to Avios? BA have made tremendous cutbacks of late and I’m wondering whether the perks of applying all miles to American would be best at this stage.
    Thanks!

    [USER=1497]@Bashley[/USER]–both programs have their pros and cons but I think overall to me it comes down to BA being easier to obtain status with and AA offering a better frequent flier program overall. You really have to see what fits best in your overall plans and what you value more.
