Might be better to post in the where to credit thread. I would say that if you are flying Aeroflot consistently their redemptions are much better than delta. It's 35k to upgrade rt Svo-jfk which is fantastic given the fares they offer. There are some other good deals in their redemptions. But be aware they have no credit card  partners and there really is no way to transfer points into your account other than flying. In addition some reward redemptions need to be booked on the phone.
I agree , but for USA based , ill do Delta, at least you can book on line, and with no expiry dates .
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

My daughter's flying Aeroflot to Israel and needs extra baggage. Can I use my sky miles to pay for extra baggage? If yes, how many points?

my relative is short 1300 miles to receive platinum status for the next year. Is there anything he can do to attain the status short of a mile run?

TIA

If Im traveling with a friend on Delta, does he get a free bag if traveling with me (I have cc)? Do i have to book his ticket or will he only get it if hes on same reservation?

You have very little time. Milage run is a good option, but if you can't, you can open a card that offers MQMs. I don't know how quickly you can get the spend done and have them post, it may be too late, but that's a good place to start looking
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Too late for that, your best option is a mileage run.

Figured. Well, if you have the DL Plat and are close to 25k spend that's an option too, but unlikely that's the case.

Still need spend to post, statement to close and a few days after that.
