Varig has an excellent FFP.I am member since 1995.It is the biggest program in Southamerica.
You need less miles for a free ticket from S.A to Europe than LH.It is not difficult to earn miles and redeem, just a phone call,no time in advance(just one day).
But not everything is perfect.The in flight service it is not as good as ten year ago.

They are all more or less the same. I would definitely recommend accumulating miles on whoever you fly the most, as some elite benifits, like upgrades, aren't available alliance-wide.

US has a pretty good program, I fly US a lot, the program is good, lots of opportunities to earn bonus miles and you get companion upgrades at any level.

UA gives you an economy plus seat, but anyone silver or gold in star gets this. UA also lets preferred members redeem miles for hotels, which I'm not sure anyone else does.

I'm not too familiar with the programs outside the US, but I'd guess they're all pretty similar, the award levels are the same except for some short-haul off-season routes.

Depends on your travel plans....BD was very good if only for perilously low Silver & Gold thresholds (16k and 38k miles) and the part miles, part cash programme. You can also get 20,000 miles for free just by getting the bmi Mastercard and since it is MBNA issued you only need a pulse to get approved.

I've now redeemed all but 12k miles in BD and am creditting *A flying to Lufthansa, a good FFP for premium travel.
