I am currently a Platinum United FF (Non USA) based in Australia having switched from Air NZ a couple of years ago and I am about to do some decent flying but am having negative feelings about the new United FF Qualifications due to the revenue component. So I am trying to find if there is a better FF (Star Alliance) scheme that would work based on the following already booked Trip.

SYD - BKK (Z) Thai

BKK - FRA (P) Lufthansa

FRA - SVQ (P) Lufthansa

SVQ - ZRH (P) Swiss

ZRH - AMS (P) Swiss

AMS - OSL (A) SAS

OSL - HEL (A) SAS

HEL - MUC (P) Lufthansa

MUC - KBP (P) Lufthansa

KBP - ZRH (P) Swiss

ZRH - WAW (F) LOT

WAW - ZAG (F) LOT

ZAG - WAW (F) LOT

WAW - MUC (P) Lufthansa

MUC - CLT (P) Lufthansa

RIC - ORD (P) United

ORD - MSP (P) United

MSP - IAH (D) United

IAH - GDL (D) United

GDL - IAH (P) United

IAH - LAX (P) United

LAX - SYD (P) United

I was looking at Asiana but they don't count the (P) class Lufthansa flights so that doesn't work well. Lufthansa seem to be very restrictive with their new system, and was considering SAS. But looking for guidance.

Regards & Thanks

Are you looking for status or miles for redemption? If status, consider Turkish Miles & Smile. It's also another one that's easy to attain star gold and valid for 24 months. If for redemption miles, it's hard to beat Krisflyer, and Lifemiles us also quite useful as well IMHO

Thanks for the reply, decided on going with Singapore. Theoretically I will earn just enough on this trip for Gold, and they ticked a couple of other boxes that helped. I was able to switch my not often used Velocity points across, and you can buy Kris Points if needed, so hopefully it pans out.
