Do You Have One FF Account, Or Multiples?

Hey all a couple of months ago I was listening to Mike and Mike in the Morning when an interesting topic came up. Mike Goelic said he had about 20 different brackets while Mike Greenberg only had one. I guess the idea behind it is loyalty, so are you loyal to one airline and it's FF plan and believe that's how it should be? Or are you on multiple plans and believe that loyalty to one airline is not as popular today and explain you reasoning?

Me, I am a loyal B6 customer, anywhere they fly I fly too. I use them for college and pleasure and when on other airlines with the family do not enjoy the fact that I have to fly without my BlueChips. My reasoning is that while B6 has limited international destinations it allows me to go to alot of places from home which is JFK, and travel to most cities in America. You can't beat that and that I really do enjoy most of their service. While at JAX AA, or DL is more reasonable to travel on especially because of their respected MIA and ATL hubs are close, I still think its unfair to change loyalties because of the fact I already enrolled in B6's TrueBlue account and have X number of points.

What's you take on it everyone?

Flying you to your destination; your girlfriend to her dreams.

Quoting CRGsFuture (Thread starter):

That would be the Gothic spelling I guess.....actually spelled "Golic"!

OnePass is my 1 and only FF account with CO. Maybe other programs offer more in certain areas and less in others but OnePass keeps getting recognition and I am quite happy with it and the perks.

I'm a member of six different FFP programs.

I'm currently only active in one. All my points I'm accruing flying *A metal are being shunted to my Air Canada Aeroplan account.

I might return to active status with my Midwest Miles account at some point as well, as I enjoy flying them.

If I come back to flying SkyTeam metal, I'll definitely be using my CO OnePass account to accrue the miles on.

Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

I'm AS only, but with their points partnerships on various airlines, I can accrue or spend points quite easily anywhere in the world. They're pretty generous with their benefits, and I reached MVP level pretty easily - just 12 months after signing up. I reached MVP Gold status earlier this year.

As a United States flier, it makes sense for me to consolidate miles into one account for each alliance. Therefore I have a NW account for my skyteam miles (where most of my flying goes to... can't beat skyteam in the USA), US for star, and AA for Oneworld

Two: AA & LH.

While I didn't choose either of them, they happen to serve the destinations I need. Though lately, I have used my LH account when flying US.

I have found myself flying DL on occasion now, but haven't signed up yet.

For me it's not about loyalty, but about which airline(s) get(s) me to where I need to go.

NW for skyteam, once DL and CO joined I dropped them, DL and CO were not as good as Worldperks, and since my flying is mostly out of a NW station only I get more from NW with worldperks.

UA for star alliance, have the most miles with UA thanks to a business, but have not flown UA in over a year.

SkyMiles for SkyTeam
MileagePlus for Star
AAdvantage for oneworld

I personally would also look at which one has the better credit cards also. The offerings from American Express for SkyMiles are top notch.

QF, UA and Asia Miles. They were all free so i just signed up. I don't really fly enough to get any points and now Air NZ has gone budget on giving out FF points so I might end up flying Oneworld more in the future.

It's all about the destination AND the journey.

I hold multiple FF accounts. It seems a simpler process of ticketing & boarding airlines particularly on Int'l trips when the airline already has your profile. Though I must admit I hate all the junk mail that comes with these even though I supposedly opt 'Out' of the promotionals.

I try to fly mostly with Star Alliance carriers, since I have UA Mileage Plus. UA is not important for me anymore, since I moved to New Zealand. In most cases, a single carrier (even Air NZ) is not helping me, and thus I am very grateful for Star Alliance - they get me almost everywhere. Sometimes it is not my choice (if somebody else pays for my flights), or other carriers are significantly cheaper, or have much better connections. Thus I also have QF for OneWorld, and DL for SkyTeam. But again, most of the times I am happy with Star...

I don't really see the point in having more than one card per alliance, so I have;

SkyTeam - Flying Blue (very loyal).
Star Alliance - BMI Diamond Club.
One World - Iberia Plus.

I don't have much on the latter two, but have nearly got myself up to Gold level so far this year on Flying Blue.
