I would head over to flyertalk and their star alliance fourm. They have posts upon posts to help you determine which *A FFP is good for you.


Always wonderers if this "last and final boarding call" is in fact THE last and final boarding call.

All depends on what perks you value more and where (geographically) you are based.

If you want to attain elite status relatively quickly for example, TG's Royal Orchid program and SK's EuroBonus are two of the better programs.

If you fly First or Business frequently, then LH's Miles-and-More is quite generous (3x miles for F, 2x miles for J, etc.)....

Definitely United Mileage Plus. They require a reasonable amount of miles and EVEN Better they do Not impose Fuel Surcharges. With the exception of US Dividend Miles and SAS Europlus all the other *A airlines impose a crazy fuel surcharge to award reservations.

Quoting panamair (Reply 2):
TG's Royal Orchid program

Just to warn the OP: if you do a lot of intra-Europe flying, several economy fare buckets on European carriers do not earn miles with Royal Orchid Plus. This was one of the reasons why I abandoned ROP in favor of the (soon-to-be) Mileage Plus.

However, it's easy to earn status with TG if you do a lot of intercontinental flying: a single BKK-LAX-BKK, for example, would be enough to earn Silver.
