I'm working up my MR points for travel to Europe through the 7-day cert and the 120,000 miles. I'm a member of the Sky Miles, AAdvantage, and the Mileage Plus programs but no elevated status in any of them. So my question is which one is the best to have the 120,000 miles applied to? It looks like, when I notionally booked travel, that United and Delta were about the same, 120,000 miles round trip for two tickets and anywhere from $250-$350 in additional taxes/fees. However, AA could be booked for 80,000 miles (2 round-trip tickets) with less than $150 in taxes/fees.
Obviously everyone has their favorites but what are some of your recent experiences in travel? Which airline would you choose for international travel and why?
Thanks in advance for the suggestions and recommendations.
