Hi All, I've been lurking for the past 6 months and in the process have earned many frequent flyer miles from all of the tips and credit card bonuses suggested here. Thank you to everyone who has posted and I finally joined so that hopefully I can contribute. My interest in miles started because I recently moved overseas for the next couple of years with my wife and 2 kids (RUH) and will be flying quite a bit. Being able to take my family on trips to other places in the area would be a big plus. I'm torn on which miles to focus on based out of RUH. I'm leaning towards AA miles since Etihad flys out of RUH to AUH and onward but United miles look to be good for travel to Europe. Since we'll fly back to the States twice a year we can go on either BA/AA or Lufthansa/United and I'd like to maximize our mileage/status by focusing on one airline. What say you frequent flyers AA or United?
