Delta Business Elite vs. United Business First: seeking your advice.
Hi Lucky – I have been following your blog for about a year and I really like your blog a lot!
I will be traveling to US in November from Singapore. As I will be entering USA via New York but leaving via San Francisco (as I am unable to get a confirmed ticket on SQ25 using suites saver award), I will need to travel from the east coast to the west coast.
As this will be my first time taking a domestic US airline, I would appreciate some advice from you. I am looking to travel from Boston to San Francisco but from the ITA matrix, only United has a direct flight. The next best option is Delta flying via LAX (I intend to travel in First as this is an anniversary trip). Unfortunately Delta Business Elite/United Business First only operates from JFK. I would like to seek your advice in terms of comfort and services, which would be a better choice?
Alternatively should I just try to redeem a United Business First using 20k KF miles from JFK (meaning making an extra trip down from Boston on a separate ticket and connect to the JFK-SFO flight)?
@ Lee — I guess it depends how long you’re looking at traveling for and which cities you plan on visiting. If you don’t plan on visiting NYC anyway I’d probably avoid going through JFK just to connect. On other routes you’d just get the “standard” domestic first class experience, which isn’t especially exciting, but isn’t horrible either.
Enjoy your trip!
