Try for some more background: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/Forum5/HTML/000084.html

You really have to analyze your travel patterns. As Celestar as found out, if you don't live in Canada, AC doesn't give you a lot of great promos (at least this year) that they give their Canadian members. There may still be advantages to AC over UA but check the Star Alliance comparison chart carefully. If you fly a lot of full fare or busines or first class tickets then Lufthansa's Miles and More is a very attractive program. Some of the benefits of going with a non UA program may include free worldwide Red Carpet lounge access with AC's Aeroplan (when you become Star Alliance Gold and providing you are flying Star Alliance).
