united. better codeshare partners, better status, better upgrades.

Upgrades...period. 😬

Currently fly into Chicago and my flights are like 80/20 Southwest/United. I had a corporate offer to immediately get A-list for Southwest and being seated in the first 5 rows without fail is amazing. But if you're playing the points and miles game for the Long haul United is undoubtedly better.

I’m Chicago based and fly both of these airlines exclusively. I’d probably recommend United, but mainly because you can probably find a status challenge to get you started quicker. Having Economy Plus is super handy. I don’t get upgraded much at all as a Gold member because so many folks travel even more than that. Southwests points are ‘worth more’, but Companion Pass is the real perk and not that worthwhile for consultants/single people

like

Depends. How much and how far is a lot? And, do you like exotic vacations? If so, and you can accumulate enough, United seems the obvious choice.

like

If you are going to travel domestically for personal travel and have a companion to take with you southwest companion pass is the best out there.

like

Companion pass is sort of useless for consultants though, given that we can often flex places and it only applies if you're flying with the companion
