Frequent flyer help sought.

I have just returned from New Zealand having made the return journey from Heathrow on Thai ( really good airline!). It seems a shame not to join a FF scheme as presumably I will have amassed quite a few miles. I am a leisure traveller.
Until some years ago when all the schemes seemed to reorganise and streamline their awards I was a member of quite a number and understood the perks and advantages. However since using Air France miles for a flight from EDI to PHL when the "taxes" turned out to be almost as much as a ticket on the open market, I have run them down. I still have about 80000 on Delta which don't seem to have an expiry date and otherwise hold Avios in the UK.
Thrown into the mix is that I have a return flight booked from MAN to PHL 27th -31st March on US Airways
Can someone help me with these queries?
1.Which scheme can I join to give me the most flexibility and hopefully no expiry date for these two airlines? I see that on the 30th March US Airways will leave Star Alliance and join One World. That suggests to me that out of Thai and US Airways it would be better to join Thai? (but I could also join any of the other partners of Thai) .
2. I have a flight from MAN to KTM booked in November on Etihad. Is it possible that there is a scheme which will accomodate all three airlines in the same account?
3. Just by way of information my holidays by and large take place in Europe when I fly on budget airlines- which ever ones suit the particular circumstances.
Many thanks
