If you want to travel internationally outside of Mexico/Caribbean/Canada, and get upgrades do United. Otherwise Southwest has really cheap awards, (your points go much farther) and qualifying for companion pass lets you book free companion tickets whenever you book a paid or award fare (essentially 2 for 1 tickets)

United u might get pulled off and win millions in a lawsuit. So Id say united

Depends. Do you have an SO? Do you want redemptions outside of North America? Do you care about upgrades?

That's like asking, "Weight lifting or cardio, in terms of physical fitness results?"

Southwest by far

I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate. There was a lady at the sink completely topless boobs all out all over the place and I think she was trying to take a half sponge bath in the sink, like taking wet paper towels and wiping her arm pits. Also no mask on. This is weird, right?
