Currently Platinum on Delta flying 3,000 miles a week but headed to b-school in the fall with an American hub. Worth switching to AA for the next few months or should I keep racking up Delta skymiles?

AA doesn't status match they sell you a status challenge for gold or platinum only

I’m thinking you want the miles and not the status... I would get the AA miles. I’m sure those will come in handy at B school.

Stick with a Delta and aim to hit Platinum again before you leave. That way you’ll have Platinum stays nearly through end of school. Best benefit is the free cancellation of award tickets.

But wouldn’t the flights out of the AA hub be cheaper on Delta than AA? I’m out of a delta hub and all flights on delta are expensive but flights on any other airline are extremely cheap. Yes you’d have a stop, but cost is different

Specifically said yellow. Hotel calls me a private lux SUV and the driver got out of the car to handshake the man who called and said hi (honestly money couldve been passed). I then get hit with a $180 ride. Marriott website says taxi should be $65. Should I complain or let it go?
