Are you loyal to an airline, despite living at another airline's hub? Why?

So, I live in Boston, which is a Jetblue and Delta Hub. However, I am a United flyer, despite United only flying to its 7 hubs Even AA flies to 17, not counting Eagle. That's also fewer destinations...

United Logan Gates?

Given how familiar I've gotten with United's bit of Terminal B being Gates 21-28, I was more than a little discombobulated when I deplaned and found myself at B31. I'd rather thought I'd gotten into...

This basically guarantees that I'll never earn status again, as 90% of my flying is economy TPAC, bc that's what the company pays for. That, at 15k or so PQM a trip, has always been good enough at...

alternatively, I'm sure a lot of us would also happily take a rollover facility; even if it is just the 10 points that cannot be spent independently.

I get that; I'm not asking about the new Points plus thing. I'm asking about using the actual MP RDM miles + copay upgrade, and whether or not the policy that currently applies to that (which is that...

What Credit Card do you guys use for non-chain stay?

So... I have the usual suspect hotel cards, Marriott and Hilton Amexs, as I don't credit enough spend to other chains to justify holding, say, an IHG card.

However.... When outside of the major...

Just as another data point: 2 year Red card holder (average monthly spend of $350), no downgrade, no AF waiver. Card cancelled. I may apply for a Citi mileup just to keep miles alive and not expiring.

I doubt that, because a) Avianca Brazil is a separate entity not in this discussion, and b) United owns 8% of Azul. Clearly, to UA, Avianca has more value as a going concern, hence it's extension of...

I paid 599, compared to a pre-check-in offer of 1209. I decided it was worth it for a near 15 hr flight. And I guess I'll wait until the gate tomorrow to see how the operational upgrades shake out.

Mexico blitz (land transport CJS / Cd. Juarez to USA border)

So this is a slightly odd one. I need to do a Mexico/texas blitz (my first) in a couple of weeks; Monterey, El Paso, Tijuana. In that order. Looking at flights, it makes far more sense for me to fly...
