If you have status with an airline but see another flight $100 cheaper, would you take it? Have delta status, but have been in this situation multiple times - and it’s usually Delta vs. United / Southwest type situations (not vs. Spirit / Frontier or even worse, American)

Will your status get you $100 in value at the preferred airline? If not, be wise with your money and take the cheaper or more convenient flight

I usually suck it up and take my preferred airline unless something is significantly cheaper like a spirit flight for 70 bucks round trip

For untied yes, for southwest, probably not.

I nearly always fly delta. Tickets may be more expensive but you do get perks like lounge access and free upgrade. Unless the price difference is ridiculous, I would stick with one airline.

Is American that bad? With the gold match for EY I’ve been upgraded to first twice

Unfortunately you had to have “earned” the gold status from American. It doesn’t work for the delta match if you were handed a gold status for free, I already tried

Yea I typically do because I get upgraded or economy plus with United - then that also helps me to next years status and keeps all my award miles with one brand as well
