I have a marriott rewards card for hotels. We stay in enough Marriotts to make it worth while. I also have that same card tied to Delta restaurants for which then gives me both airline and hotel miles on one transaction. I've been here 2 years in February and have earned just over 240k Delta miles. I have miles on AA and UA but living in the southeast I use Delta more often when vacationing. when you start commuting you're able to send in your mileage rewards numbers for all the Airlines and it will automatically show up on your reservation. Typically I can look at my reservation on my Delta App before I even Hangup the phone with the travel office. I then pick my seats on my own.

240K is a lot! What do you mean by Delta restaurants? Marriott rewards card seems like a good option then. I've been looking into the chase sapphire card and the barclaycard arrival plus as well. With all your delta miles, do you get access to the delta sky club?

YMMV. I fly almost exclusively on Delta and barely made Silver status last year. A 1-hour flight to/from CVG every month doesn't mean a whole lot. Depends on your aircraft/base. While anybody can be assigned anything, I always ride company airplanes on the long DHs to/from Asia. Maybe I'll have a few short DHs around Asia during my pattern. JFK 767 guys have some trips where they'll commercial you from home to Bahrain and back at the end, so that could add up. I'd say in general the 747 guys DH on commercial carriers a lot more than we do.

Whatever man, I enjoyed a 13 hour DOH-JFK ride recently on Qatar, complete with a glass (or three) of a 40 year old Tawny Port.

True that it varies depending on home vs base and which airplane. I'm in my 5th year here and live in Montana while being based in JFK. I've made platinum on Delta for two years now and have just under 400K miles. That's after using 60K last July to purchase a years membership in the Sky Club. If the cards fall your way on the variables it works pretty well!

I know pilots keep their mileage when they deadhead on AA, Delta, etc so is there any good options as far as credit cards go to maximize those miles? American and US airways are offering 50,000 bonus miles to new members right now. I'm thinking about applying for both and having those miles merge whenever they merge the credit card points.
Atlas does offer stand by tickets on the following careers. Delta, united, American/usairways Jetblue and one more I can remember the name. It is under myidtravel.com. Not sure what they call the actual rate(id90, zed, whatever). Here are some examples of prices. For the islands you are looking at around 250$ for europe around 400-450$. That is leaving from Charlotte. Its pretty much the same prices as buddy passes. 60% of pilots at Atlas do not know this, the company does not advertise it.

I don't see United listed as an option, AA appears to be employee only (not family). Southwest and Scenic are also options.

Who do I email in the company to get on that website? I can't find anything on the disaster called Globalnet.
