The accolades and acclaim continue to come for United Airlines, recently awarded Favorite Frequent-Flyer Program by trazeetravel.com for the fourth consecutive year, and Best Reward Program of any airline in the Americas by FlyerTalk.
These awards come on the heels of United Airlines’ 15th consecutive win as Best Overall Frequent-Flyer Program in Global Traveler’s GT Tested Reader Survey awards.
The Trazees are awarded by the readers of trazeetravel.com, a web publication from FXExpress Publications, Inc., aimed at travelers aged 25–40. More than 15,000 reader votes were collected December 2018–March 2019, and the results decreed United Airlines Favorite Frequent-Flyer Program for the fourth time. The United Explorer Card from Chase was awarded Favorite Credit Card.
“This honor is particularly meaningful because this comes directly from our millennial customers,” said Luc Bondar, president of MileagePlus and vice president of loyalty, United Airlines. “We deliver the possibilities of award travel to all members, including our adventurous millennial travelers, and we are proud to offer more award destinations than any other U.S. carrier.”
Never one to rest on its laurels, United continually enhances its MileagePlus program, offering new ways to earn and redeem miles and increasing benefits. In June 2018, United and Chase launched the enhanced United Explorer Card to offer two miles per $1 spent on hotel accommodations and restaurant purchases and 25 percent back on in-flight WiFi, food and drinks.
In addition to offering more ways to earn miles than any other U.S. carrier, the MileagePlus program also allows for greater opportunities to use miles, starting as low as 1,000 miles for e-gift cards. The airline recently enhanced its industry-leading MileagePlusX app as well, enabling more ways for members to earn and use miles while shopping or dining.
FlyerTalk is an online community of frequent travelers who participate in an annual survey to determine the best travel programs and benefits. In addition to the Best Reward Program nod, the community also named the complimentary Economy Plus upgrades MileagePlus members enjoy as the most Outstanding Benefit of any airline program in the Americas.
United offers the most award destination of any U.S. carrier between United and Star Alliance flights, which serve more than 1,300 destinations in more than 190 countries. MileagePlus members earn miles on United, United Express and Star Alliance partner flights, and by purchasing products or services from partners around the globe.
Another perk? Members can use miles to access unique opportunities across the entire travel journey, including air, hotel, car rental and one-of-a-kind experiences money can’t buy through MileagePlus Exclusives.
In 2018’s GT Tested Reader Survey awards, United MileagePlus continued its trend of making several award-winning appearances. Scooping up its 15th win (dominating the category for the survey’s entire lifespan) as Best Overall Frequent-Flyer Program, United won Best Frequent-Flyer Bonus Program for the sixth consecutive year, while its co-branded credit cards earned Best Overall Credit Card, seven years running, and Best Credit Card Rewards Program, also for the seventh time, for the United MileagePlus Club Card from Chase, and Best Frequent-Flyer Affinity Credit Card Redemptions for the sixth time for the United Explorer Card from Chase.

Though air travel slowed as airports temporarily closed and borders shuttered to stifle the spread of coronavirus, the airline industry — led by oneworld alliance member airlines — enacted enhanced protective measures to reduce risk and protect passengers.
I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
