Here at UPGRD.com we get emails from readers and from time to time we publish them (edited by blogger for brevity and privacy). This one is from reader VC:
I am a graduate student who has been doing some frequent budget travel to maintain a long distance relationship and have some future international travel plans for work. I would like to know what airline loyalty advice you can give me?I’ve got 70k Delta because my home base was/will be Atlanta, about 30k United and a little Southwest and 3k in American Airlines. I had a taste of first class on an international flight and it was great! I want to maximize these travel-for-work perks and get back to first class and I’m not sure which direction to go in.
