The Washington Post recently listed the best of travel on the Web, from A to Z and our very own WebFlyer was the best “F” for frequent flyers:
“Frequent-flier expert, Randy Petersen runs several sites devoted to the topic. Best overall is WebFlyer — http://www.webflyer.com — which offers extensive details on most loyalty programs. The site also reviews and ranks the programs and posts the latest frequent-flier news, such as United’s recent decision to set a stricter expiration policy.”
Honorable mentions included our http://www.flyertalk.com and http://www.insideflyer.com Web sites as well as http://www.frequentflier.com and http://www.milemaven.com. The Washington Post reported that for the first time ever, Internet bookings this year will account for more than half of all U.S. travel bookings, according to a recent report from independent travel research firm PhoCusWright. Last year, U.S. online travel bookings totaled about $85 billion. It’s predicted by 2011, $128 billion in travel will be sold online in the United States, according to findings by Jupiter Research.
