    Once again, SkyMiles is getting the recognition that it deserves. Congratulations to Slippery Jeff and crew.

    Hmmm OneWorld sweeps the airline rewards categories…

    While I always respect a consensus, I personally disagree with Hilton! but that is me.

    Hilton? Really & while I kind of agree that the AA System wide upgrades are better then UA’s on the surface, I’d still rather have my UA system wides which I can use on a lay flat seat to UA’s far superior (own metal) intl route network then AA’s hand full of lay flats that “right now” only fly to to London & Brazil

    i hate aa.com. even though they call themselves one world and says they have many partner airlines. You can’t see those partner airlines when booking international award flight. It always shows only 3 airlines including AA itself. So redeeming AA miles for international award flight is pain in the A** and almost impossible. You have to waste 20 mins on phone with an agent who will tell you there is no partner flights.

    I love united.com for booking award flight domestic or international.

    AA has a few gems in their partner redemption, but the list is FAR shorter than the UA / Star one.

    My vote was 5 for 6. Not a Club Carlson member.

    I was completely unaware of Club Carlson and the Carlson brand until last year when my wife stayed at one in Tahiti, just outside Papeete. I’m quite surprised that they could garner this much support. Now wish I had known about the 50K points for each stay promo.
