PPE has higher annual fees. $75 vs $45

The main benefit for PPE is if you paid for the ticket, you get additional points for the miles. (You do get 2 points for every dollar you spend at gas stations, supermarkets and drugstores, but there are much better cards for these categories)
If you are not paying for the tickets then this benefit is practically useless. If you are then get PPE. Otherwise SPG is the better card.

Based on the information above, I would suggest the Citi AMEX Platinum as the best card for at least the first 2 years.
