You obviously don't like OneWorld much...
What's there not to like? The two biggest mechutanim, one with YQ which could exceed revenue tickets, and the other with nothing to like AAbout it.

But then you have some brighter spots CX, QF, and QR. And while I haven't been on AB, I have sent my sons on it, and I don't think anything beats TXL for accessibility to a Minyan (or just getting into the city, though we don't know how much longer that might last).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Don't forget CX anti-BYOK policies and MH-well we won't go there...
Though you'll still choose to fly CX to YVR over other airlines. MH - where's there? ;)

I wish B6 and DL would fly in and out of Terminal 1 in FLL, which makes getting to the car rental center even more of a breeze).

When I go down to MB I rarely rent a car and I therefore prefer MIA of FLL. Uber is considerably cheaper and the ride is faster (allowing one to return later). While traffic can be bad leaving the beach on I-195/I-95 during rush hour, traffic is worse getting to FLL at that time. Last time I flew out of MIA I departed out of High E; I get how doing a 5K charity walk to get to your gate can be annoying. But for me its worth it when you sum everything up including lounge access. I actually take into account the uber cost from FLL when booking flights and even if it is $5 cheaper then MIA I still choose the latter.

When I rent a car I uber to Midbeach and rent from there.

Not from NYC. Very limited service out of LGA.

There's no way an airline can fly long distance without a hub being involved

Feel free to show me a single counter-example from an airline like AA or UA.
You need feed to make a route successful. No hub=no feed.
