Hi all. Need a bit of advice...

I have flights booked with EY and UA this year. I currently have archived miles with UA which I could pay to update (about 12k miles) and as a result am a Mileage Plus member. My question is this...

Am I better off leaving these miles and joining another Star program such as NZ where I can earn miles on the EY flights? Do any Star program's offer status miles for EY flights or is it just destination miles??

Thanks in advance?

Next Flights: EI DUB-LHR A320, BA LHR-SFO B744, UA SFO-LAS A320, BA LAS-LHR B744, EI LHR-DUB A320

Along with NZ, you can also join Asiana or TAP, where you will get miles on EY. I think you can get status miles, but I am not sure.

Membership in Air New Zealand's frequent flier program isn't free (forgot the cost) unless you have a flown business class ticket.

You do not earn status miles on the programs of Asiana, ANA or Air New Zealand when flying Etihad, only award miles.

I don't know of any other Star carrier where you can earn award, let alone status, miles on Etihad.
