Hi friends! Need some ideas on how to maximize my points / miles. I want to take a trip to Portugal or Italy. I am considering flying from EWR since it’s a United hub. United: 123,000 miles, Premier 1k AA: 54k, Exec Platinum CSR: 52,500 currently Marriott: 72,000 - but I have 22 suite night upgrades

United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.

I live near Newark (EWR) a United hub and only have a CSR which is a United transfer partner. I travel a few times a year for work internationally (I get to put expenses on my CSR). I’m wondering if I should try to book only Star Alliance airlines so I can have the United Points and Chase Points to transfer or if I should fly SkyTeam and get the Delta points as Delta’s points program is rated higher at the TPG Awards. Also open to other ideas.
