Moving to London, frequent flyer program strategy

Moving to London, frequent flyer program strategy

  1. Anonymous

    Hi,

    I might be moving to London for 2 years (maybe longer) next year. I’m EP with AA right now. Should I keep my AA elite program or should I join another one like the BA executive program. If the latter, which program would you recommend?

    thanks,
    Ryan

    Where will most of your 2021 / 2022 travel be? Back to the US for work? For family? Will you be traveling intra-Europe? Who will be paying?

    If you are going to be flying intra-Europe, I’d join BA and shoot for elite status there. If the bulk of your trips are back to the US and on your own dime, I may keep AA EXP for the SWUs.

    And don’t forget that to keep any kind of AA status you’ll need at least 4 segments on AA metal.

    As the others have said – it largely depends on your flying plans for the next two years. There’s nothing wrong with sticking with AA as its OneWorld, so long as you remember what MidSouth says – you’ll need 4 segments on AA metal. That could be something as simple as 1 or 2 trips back to the US a year.
