Depends what you prefer more. I’d say that Delta > United, EWR > LGA, but also how much you value your time!! Cause that’ll add up to like 45 minutes a week.

Overall the ride home is gonna suck. Might as well earn more points while doing it. Typically I’ve also found that I always work after landing so it doesn’t really matter to me if I’m working in the car or working at home 🙃

Star Alliance > Sky Team, so if you’re looking to burn those miles somewhere cool greater chance with United and EWR.

Are United miles still more valuable than sky miles with the mileagePlus devaluation?

Yup

Do you really think that you’ll make it to LGA in 20mins? Are you in the parking lot now?

I used to call my Uber at LGA as soon as my wheels touched the runway. On some days, I’d still wait 15 min for it

Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
