Delta

AA has better point value and alliance. Delta has better service. I optimize for leisure time, so I'd go AA.

DELTA

AA has better point value by a decent margin, so if you're looking to build point value, AA. That being said Delta typically has better service, and beyond that you should optimize for the most convenient routes

Yesterday I purchased an overseas flight from United but it’s operated by Lufthansa. Today I looked and Lufthansa has one seat left for my itinerary. The flight is in December and I will likely want to bid on an upgrade. Should I cancel and rebook with Lufthansa to increase my odds of my upgrade being accepted? And am I even able to bid on an upgrade via United? I have about 10 hours to make this decision since I can cancel without penalty within 24 hours of purchasing. Thx!

Is it worth staying at aloft for double points? Or does double aloft points = normal Westin or W points?

Curious for people’s thoughts on where I should be focused:

30yo, all figures combined for 2ppl:

-$325k household income

-$150k student debt (mix of mba and undergrad)
-$30k misc debt (car, credit card, personal loans)

-$35k in 401k savings
-$2.5k in HSA savings
-$1.5k investment account
-$8k cash savings

Didn’t do so strongly in our 20s (worked at nonprofits, spent outside our means), but want to spend our 30s getting financially secure. Where should we start? Pay down debt? Start saving?

My current bag is an older version of this Sherpani tote. I like the look but it’s too small.
