I'm a points whore and find United to be the most valuable and preferable for the kind of trips I try to do. generally speaking that's points tickets in business class on international partner airlines, Thai gets me to some more places I want to go; and I quite enjoy Turkish.

Used to fly AA. Got fed up with their service so now delta. I DO have to take flights with layovers to a few places now which blows but not as bad as giving more business to AA

Southwest - amazing customer service and can't beat the companion pass!!

We have a 2 months old baby now, and during his paternity leave, he smoked several times a day and napped w. Baby. Continued-

Also, whether you’ll need to be intubated or not depends only on your immune response and there’s no medication to help.
