In recent years I travelled mainly with Star and reached Star Gold (LH Senator). I would like to try more airlines in future and so I think about joining another frequent flyer prog (non-Star). But which one???
My travel for the new FF prog will be mainly on long distances and C-class. Nevertheless it should also be possible to get miles for other classes (from all participating partner airlines).
I will use the miles for upgrades (additional upgrade vouchers for reaching mile limits would be great, too) and maybe hotel stays.
My aim is also to reach status. Because I will use the FF prog mainly for leisure travel it would be a benefit if status could be reached soon or status would be valid for a longer period.

I'd say AAdvantage if you are looking at oneworld carriers. AAdvantage gives you a lot of opportunities to earn mileage. You can earn a lot of non-flight miles through AOL AAdvantage and they have a lot of partners. Pretty darn good customer service too.
