Single not married... connect; spouse / kids, any route that allows me to spend more time with them.

Connecting flight. 1 hour isn’t bad

Connecting.

Direct. If the first flight is delayed then it’s all for naught

Took connections for years. Through CLT I’m assuming that’s AA so godspeed on your loyalty choice. I was with them for 3 years and then finally couldn’t take it, but that said, CLT actually became one of my favorite airports.

UA agents also have way more freedom than AA when it comes to bending rules for your sake. Delta is #1 in that regard, then UA, then AA far behind, IMO.

Connecting. Anything else is bad status management.

Single but 2-3 hours at home resting > points for me

Points.

I do the connection weekly. Granted the direct is on Spirit....

Direct. I value my time more than points.

I have the chance to convert 170,000 Marriott points to cash at their "going rate" of .8 cents to be $1360. Would you do it? My question effectively is, if I have time and location flexibility, is it likely I could find a sweet deal to get more than that amount of value from those points?
