Readers of Global Traveler voted United's MileagePlus loyalty program the Best Overall Frequent-Flyer Program in the world for 2015, marking the twelfth consecutive year that MileagePlus has received the award. Global Traveler readers who participated in the 2015 GT Tested Reader Survey bestowed United with the honor, affirming MileagePlus' position as the industry's leading loyalty program.
Global Traveler readers also selected United as the Best Trans-Pacific Airline and, for the second straight year, named MileagePlus the Best Frequent-Flyer Bonus Program. Thomas F. O'Toole, United's senior vice president, chief marketing officer and president of MileagePlus, accepted the honors at the annual Global Traveler awards dinner in Beverly Hills, California, earlier this month.
"The 2015 Global Traveler awards, voted on by savvy travelers worldwide, recognize our ongoing commitment to advancing United's service to our customers," said O'Toole. "We are particularly gratified that readers voted MileagePlus as the Best Overall Frequent-Flyer Program in the world for the twelfth consecutive year, which attests to our continued development of the industry's top loyalty program."
