Well, most instruments are made to A440, which is the standard in the US. A442 allows makers to make a flute that can tune more comfortably in groups which may play as high as A444.

You should tune to A440. If you tune to A442 your octave will be A884 vs your group at A880. Playing A440 in tune on your modern A442 flute should be easier than A440 on a traditional scale flute at A440.
