I am here to get some advise and recommendations from you. Due to family reasons I now will have to travel to CCU (Kolkata) twice a year for several years into the future from the US. All this while, I have not had any airline loyalty even though I fly that route at least once a year. I usually take Emirates, Singapore, or Qatar. I used to take BA, but they stopped flying into CCU. I prefer a one-stop flight. Being that it is CCU, I do not have too many options. In fact I do not have any European connection options. My only one stop options are Emirates or Qatar. I realize that I will have to be flexible be open to two-stop options.
Can you suggest some routings and loyalty programs that will be beneficial to me in the long run? I fly from IAH in the US.
Thank you for your time!
