“We are grateful that the readers of Business Traveler have once again selected United Mileage Plus best frequent flyer program for the seventh consecutive year,” said Robert Sahadevan, Senior Vice President, Mileage Plus, UAL Loyalty Services, Inc.  “We continually strengthen our program and add new partners each year,  and this honor offers further validation of the value of our program to our 40 million enrolled members.”
