I only really fly Delta so it wasn't an issue. I grabbed the Gold one for the signup bonus, free bags and priority boarding. Travel 2 round trips and you justify the card alone just for the bags. I upgraded to the Platinum for after I was offered a certain number of MQM miles but, it's not worth the extra $50 a year unless you really need the free companion ticket. Having the regular Amex Platinum, I don't see a need for the Reserve one.
If you fly other airlines, I don't know what cards are better than others with those. There was a pretty good offer for the British Airways card a while back and you could use those to book on American.
