What's the Best Frequent Flyer Programme in Star Alliance?
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.
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.
