Go with bmi, as a Dutch resident you can join (not all countries can). The thresholds for Gold and Silver are woefully low, yet you still get Star Gold (38k miles compared to LH's 100k miles) and Star Silver (16k miles).
Award redemption are very generous, VS Upper Class award seat to the US west coast is just 100k miles and you can combine cash and miles on all Star Alliance partners, for example SQ First LHR-SIN-LHR is just 80k miles + £540 cash!
I've got both LH Miles & More and bmi Diamond Club and am now putting more and more of my *A miles into bmi.

Quoting Sabena332 (reply 3): Prestige: 18,000 Status miles or 30 Status flights;
I'm pretty sure this has been increased to 25,000 Status miles. Gold is still at 35,000 miles. I really hope they do not increase the latter, as I have been Gold for 4-5 years now and I never managed to reach 50,000 miles.
Yes, I like Aeroplan very much. It's what I use for all personal travel.
