So I've primarily stuck with Air Canada (Aeroplan) over many years. This has been able to offer some good privileges in their top tier Super Elite (100k) with upgrades, lounge access, concierge service etc. Last year I had a ton of work travel to NZ and AC don't serve there and via Oz was too inconvenient. So I joined ANZ for the year and quickly got their top tier and they are without doubt one of the best airlines you could wish to fly. Their service on the ground, air, baggage services etc were excellent. Also after the first couple of flights, I was upgraded every flight. Just excellent.
I do hold Delta and BA...both because of "awkward" routes that Star Alliance doesn't serve and I collected several thousand points. The only two airlines I've had terrible trouble getting points assigned were both non-aligned airlines (a theme?) : ElAl and Emirates. I eventually gave up and won't rush back to use either.
