Isn’t Houston a united hub? That’s a no brainer for me

Believe it or not American might provide the best value for your money and upgrades. See if they have a status match.

BCG 1 - not true. Through Accenture, you can get a status match on American. Look on the Smart Travelers site. I got them to match my Delta status.

I'm a Houstonian who traveled to NY for a year. I am partial to southwest but it's not as useful for your leisure trips if you live in New York. Do United. Their terminal in Newark is a lot nicer and Star Alliance is by far the best airline alliance. There's even some flights where they use the wide body jets between the two hubs.

Thanks for the input everyone! I was leaning towards United given Houston isna hub, but I usually hear Delta is "better", so I was considering that as an option as well

But Delta Skypesos are worthless. I’ll take some abuse and good redemption value.

Hi there!
I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly.
Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team.
I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation.
What are your thoughts?
