2013 GlobeRunner Awards: Lufthansa Scores Top Rating

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

Frequent Business Traveler magazine recently announced the winners of its GlobeRunner Awards.  Airlines, hotels, and frequent flyer programs including Lufthansa, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, and American Express Membership Rewards were recognized. The winners were handpicked by readers.

Top Frequent Flyer Program

Lufthansa was at the top of the list coming in with two awards – Best Frequent Flyer Program and Best First Class lounge. The airline first introduced its Miles and More frequent flyer program in 1993.

Thirteen airlines are included in its European network, allowing members to earn miles while flying on Lufthansa, and its Miles and More partners including other members of the Star Alliance, which took the award for Best Airline Alliance.

According to the readers, American Express Membership Rewards gives members the best rate of return – also earning them a GlobeRunner Award.

Flying High

When it comes to flying in the US, the top honors went to American Airlines. Singapore Airlines got the top spot for the Asia and Pacific Rim region, with voters giving Transaero Airline a nod when traveling to Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Travelers can spend lots of time in airports, so it’s not surprising that they were included in the awards, with John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Singapore Changi Airport and Dubai International Airport all getting top spots in their regions.

Hilton Hotels & Resorts Racks Up Awards

Hilton Hotels & Resorts swept the awards, earning the Best Hotel Chain across the globe – America, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim. HHonors, their loyalty reward program, earned them the top spot in this category, while earning another GlobeRunner Award for best hotel restaurant.

Odds and Ends

Wondering which airline has best in best food and wine? This year it’s Emirates Airline.  Expedia is the best for booking travel, according to the magazine.  When it comes to car rentals, Hertz came out on top.

The readers of Frequent Business Traveler cast 110,000 votes online from January 9 through March 15 to pick the winners.
