KLM - L
Delta N

Best place to credit?

Bump

Seems AF, Alaska and Delta will all be the same  -
Can anyone confirm? Also, are there any better options?

Airline: VS
From: LHR
To: EWR
Fare Class booked in: O
One way

Thanks in advance

ETA: Apparently, other than VS (which gives 100%), no other airline gives more than 50%.

I figure I should go with Virgin, although it may still be worth it to just go with Delta, since I already have an account with them.

go with VS. they can have awards to london for as low as 13k and can be topped off VERY easily

Thanks.
They tell me I never had an account with them so I'll open a new one. With all US mileage programs awarding points by price paid, I'm happy to move onto foreign mileage programs.

Airline: AA
From:LGA-CLT-LAX
Fare Class booked in:N
The flight cost like $230 so it looks like my best bet would be one of Cathay (etihad?) Or finnair?
I don't currently have an account with any other than AA.
Thanks

Chase transfers instantly to United. You have 24 hours to change or cancel without a fee.
There are ways around the $75 close-in booking fee.

When booking a round trip only one leg will get that close in fee? Correct? And when booking 2 tickets will I be able to do the trick to waive both close in fees! ? Thanks

What does this mean? 

However unless you have a United Club card or have elite status you’ll get hit with a $75 expedite/close-in fee:

I thought it doesn't help to have the cc to waive the fee? (or is the club card referring to something else then the cc? )

there are 2 united cc's the explorer cc which costs $95 a year and the united club cc which costs $450 a year only the latter waives the close-in fee
