Before I look, let me guess - Delta and US at the bottom, Southwest at the top.

EDIT: Quelle surprise! Though I wasn't really planning on racking up many with my new Emirates status, interesting to see them at the bottom. I suspect they have enough demand and iirc, the Middle East airlines were late to/not that interested in the FF game.

I do have quite a bit of (negative) experience with US, though Delta and SW are by reputation only.

Is it still guessing if you've experienced the programs first hand?

I don't think so

UA better than AA? No way.

It's not really clear how they weight long-haul vs short-haul... Some of those carriers at the top are domestic/shorthaul route heavy.
