QFFs switching to AAdvantage.

Seen a few comments regarding qffs switching points over to AAdvantage miles. Can someone please point me in the direction of some answers as to why that might be attractive?

It's horses for courses.

Let's start by detailing your travel patterns. Aadvantage might not be the best option for everyone.

If you mainly travel on Qantas then stick to Qantas FF. I personally can't be bothered having multiple accounts and QF FF has served me perfectly well so I just stick to them. As TheRealBabushka alluded to... It comes down to your travel patterns and who you fly. I like having my points in one place.

I recently sat down and calculated that the flying I've done this year to retain Platinum on QFF wouldn't have even earned me AAdvantage Gold status (oneworld Ruby). This is mostly due to QFF's favouritism towards frequent flyers booking into premium cabins as opposed to a more arduous butt-in-seat miles requirement for AAdvantage.
