Time to commit to a loyalty program; which airline?

Jump to last reply

I'd appreciate some expert advice on airline loyalty programs.
My husband has recently changed jobs and his travel has increased exponentially so I've been given the job of researching the best program for him.

He's flying both domestically and internationally. He has FF numbers for lots of airlines and in the past has tended to pick and choose domestic flights based on shortest routes and convenient times. Tended to ignore miles except to use as upgrades for exit rows in coach but is now typically flying in business class overseas.

So, best airline/s program to choose? Majority of overseas flights are currently within Europe (over next 3 months London/ Denmark / Sweden/ Finland) and he already has status with Icelandair but maybe BA has better alliances?
Over the next 2-3 months he also has to book flights to China, Brazil, Australia plus lots of domestic travel. Home airport is Boston, Logan.

Our goal is to accumulate points that I can use to occasionally accompany him or to use for us to travel as a family.

We do not currently have an airline credit card. Time to get one?
We have a Hyatt card/ Chase and collect hotel points with Hyatt, SPG and Marriott.
