I've got no status with AA or DL, but I can get entry level status with one of them with one last booking this year. Anyone have a suggestion about which airline has a better status program? I fly them both quite a bit and have had mixed results, so I'm not sure if I prefer one of these airlines over the other. AA has a better FF program, but DL has better service. For my last booking, AA is $90 more expensive than DL but neither schedule/route is really any better than the other, so if I choose AA I'd be paying an unnecessary $90 just to obtain elite status.
