    Is there a better airline than US Airways for complimentary upgrades?

    I made silver with USA in November of 2012. Since then I have flown 17 segments with USA. I have been upgraded 12 times and have been seated in the exit row 5 times (free of charge). My home airport is MSY and I fly mostly up and down the east coast.

    My question to everybody here is; For someone like me who is the lowest elite level, is there an airline that I could fly and get the same amount of upgrades? What is everyone elses experiences with your airline.

    US or DL are likely to be best for comp upgrades at the bottom tier. And US is probably slightly better than DL.

    No one really knows what the new AA program is going to look like after the AA/US merger happens so that's subject to change.

    AA makes you use stickers and UA is comp'd but less common.
