Long time United flyer. Moving down to Raleigh. American or Delta? I like to use my miles for international trips. Also any challengers I can do, or thoughts on getting status fast?

It depends. Do you prefer connecting through CLT or ATL?

like

RDU has terrible connectivity. You can fly to ATL, CLT, LGA, DCA, LHR, or CDG. Obviously some hyperbole, but it is seriously a bad airport for connectivity Source - lived in the triangle area for two years

American is usually case by case.. ive seen some people get it some who didnt... they usually have paid status challenges but not sure if its worth it... with AA it’s usually best to call them from what ive heard

For miles redemption go with AA. For customer service go with Delta

So much incorrect information on here jfc. I lived in the Triangle and was a DL Diamond, both until just recently. Internationally, AA to LHR and DL to CDG. Moreover, RDU is a “regional/focus” city for Delta and has a surprising amount of non-hub non stops (CUN, FLL, PHL, IND, CMH, BDL, BOS, BNA, etc) and tons of hub connectivity (even to smaller ones SLC, SEA, LAX). AA and DL both have lounges. I’m now United and would not recommend it as an RDU-based flyer.

Status match is probably ur best bet

@BCG probably neither. If I had to connect I might as well just stay with United right? @A1 does American have status match? I thought Delta did but wasn’t sure on American

^ agreed. Initially declined my match when I emailed, then I called and got it. Very cumbersome compared to the other status matches

If with PwC you can get instant silver status with delta. Check Spark.

Flew United to RDU from IAH for 10 months. Honestly, since you really can only get to hub cities you are better off selecting an airline for each new project

Delta for sure

Was just in Raleigh, the intl options I saw (LHR and CDG) were American.

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though.
