FF Program Recommendation for 2016?
Any recommendations for a FF program for 2016? Currently have no status (used to be elite on AA, UA, DL). Flew ~ 50k in 2015 mainly NYC – SEA and NYC – PDX. 2016 will fly ~100-125k mainly NYC- SEA / NYC – PDX, 2-3x NYC – Asia and 1-2x NYC – Europe. Normally fly economy. Have a platinum exec card for AA so lounge access.
Main focus is on legroom (I’m 6’3″), lounges, skipping long security lines, and direct flights. Thinking Alaska, UA/Star Alliance (Asiana?/Aegean?) or sticking w AA through the coming devaluation. Thanks
Tough choices… DL for the operational efficiency, AA for the international benefits like SWUs and miles, AS for overall mileage earning and usage. Are you leaning in a particular direction? What do you see yourself flying the most for your domestic legs?
