Hey everyone, My current project in LA is drawing to a close; next up looks like a number of months in Montgomery, AL. Looking at flight schedules, it just looks really hard to get from DCA to MGM on US. Even taking first flight out on a weekday, I wouldn't get to MGM until almost 11:30am; likewise, the last US departure is at 3:06pm. The first is probably too late to arrive on any given weekday, and the latter is too early to depart. I hate to do this, because US has been pretty good to me, but I'm thinking of flying Delta for a while on this project...I can take the first flight DCA-ATL, get to ATL by a little after 7am, and then drive the couple hours to Montgomery--with the time change, I should be able to be there by 9am on any given day. I could also take a connection in ATL (but it's only 36 minutes which can be hairy there) and land in MGM a little after 8, then rent a car there. If I did start flying DL, do you guys think it's worth burning a status match on it? By the time I'm done with my LA project at the end of April, I'll be close to requalifying to Platinum on US...I figure DL would probably match me to Gold...but I'm just not sure what I think about doing that. Any thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks!
