If LGA, delta.

Delta beats United in pretty much every way, the only thing would depend on from where and to where you are flying. Into JFK, Delta. Into EWR, United. LGA, doesn’t really matter. I’d probably still go with Delta either way!

Delta is good but if you aren’t flying with them long term the miles you get aren’t that valuable. Redemptions are high for delta, United flights are less miles plus you can take advantage of the excursionist perk

Can I throw in American for LGA or JFK? Really depends on where you’re coming from

United has better rewards for points

United is shit for earning but decent for redeeming. That said unless you’re using EWR I’d avoid United.

Delta has challenges often, whereas United only has matching “challenges"

Delta is great from NY. Especially with cross over rewards with SPG. Not sure how those will work though after August

American!

I’m currently American Exec Plat and moving to NYC, any NYC exec plats think it’s worth staying loyal?
