The Freddie Awards—named after Sir Freddie Laker in honor of his accomplishments in marketing travel during the 1970s—have evolved into a popular method for frequent travelers to voice their opinions about frequent travel programs. Randy Petersen, editor and publisher of InsideFlyer magazine and creator of the Freddie Awards, calls them the frequent traveler’s answer to the Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Awards.
