As a hotel industry customer service trainer and conference speaker, I am on the road nearly every week. Being based in a large metropolitan area such as Ft. Lauderdale / Miami, FL, it is not logical to stay loyal to one airline; I find it better to fly on whichever one has non-stops. Although I am a Platinum level flyer on both Delta and American, I also frequently fly all the major airlines including United, Southwest, Jetblue, and even some of the low-cost ones such as Spirit and Frontier. I’m sure I fly at least 200,000 miles every year and have for more than 25 years.
