Depends on how you want to use your miles. Southeast Asia - United, South America - AA. I assume based on your questions you’re from ORD?

I’m from dc but need to fly to ORD

ua has better options for redemptions if you willing to fly out of Iad. If you prefer to stick with dca then I would go with AA.

They did, but with the switch to awards tied to revenue and then death of the award chart after November a la Delta they no longer do. AA wins for now based on award redemptions but unfortunately AA likely to shit on its customers soon with a similar move.

If Chicago consider SWA from MDW

Avoid Southwest if you have any desire to travel internationally
