Why US Airways’ Upgrade System is Better (And Why Pizza is Wrong)

Back in October, I decided I was ready to settle down with an airline. I didn’t really care which airline it was overall. I just wanted convenience, great status benefits, and an easy way of getting it. I originally had my eye on American Airlines for status. I flew them a few times already and they have many flights out of Washington-Reagan (DCA). But I began to waver when I saw US Airways Trial Preferred Program. For just $200, I could start with Silver Preferred Status and earn it with just 7,500 miles. I was already planning on flying more than that amount, so I had that in the bag.Pizza in Motion has my explanation as to why the US Airways upgrade process is better than American’s.  I am not arguing that the US Airways product is better.

Check out my reasons why on Ed’s post here.  Afterwards, he’s going to attempt wrote a rebuttal.
