    A number of years ago AZ would give easier status to people with non-Italian addresses, so I was able to reach Freccia Alata (at the time that was their top tier, but the program has changed) with 50k eqm's.

    It may depend on what type of fares you purchase. If you purchase the cheapest available, not all of them offer 100% elite and/or redeemable miles.

    Additional information would be helpful...
    Where are you based?
    Do you travel mostly domestic/international.
    Are you looking for free upgrades, lounge access, etc.?

    These really are the key questions. I know in OW, when I was BA Gold (OW Emerald) I got Admirals Club on domestic US tickets, since it was international for me (I was BA, not AA).

    If you fly mostly domestic in the US, I would recommend DL for the upgrades. But that's just my 2 cents.
