Premium Travelers Name Continental Airlines Top in Airport Lounges Global Traveler Readers have Chosen the Presidents Club as the Best Lounge Around

Global Traveler announces Continental Airlines as an award winner.

Morrisville, PA (PRWEB) January 21, 2007

Global Traveler is pleased to announce that Continental Airlines Presidents Club has won the GT Tested Award for Best Airport Lounges. Continental was awarded this honor by Global Traveler readers who participated in a survey that ran in the magazine from February 2006 to August 2006.

Continental Airlines' Presidents Club will be recognized at an awards luncheon on January 23, 2007 at the Jumeirah Essex House in New York City. Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO of Global Traveler, will honor the winners at the gala ceremony, accompanied by Cynthia Nixon, star of Sex and the City. Nixon will speak to attendees on behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

"The awards luncheon is a celebration of the accomplishments of all our award winners," Gallagher said. "Our readers have recognized them as the cream of the crop; however, this luncheon also reminds all of us that it's time to give back. By benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we have the opportunity to help and celebrate personal good fortune by helping those hindered by misfortune. However, I do want to congratulate all of our winners for their achievements in the world of travel and the work they do that puts them a step ahead of the competition."

"We're proud of the accolade from the readers of Global Traveler, as they recognize the high quality amenities and accommodations we offer our global customers in 27 worldwide clubs. Last year, we set the record for visits in the Presidents Club and we expanded several clubs to accommodate the increase in visits and the demand for new memberships," said Kevin McKenna, managing director for Brand Marketing at Continental Airlines.

About the Survey

Global Traveler conducted the third annual survey of its readers from February 1, 2006 to August 31, 2006, with open-ended questions for the best in 42 categories of business and luxury travel. A total of 13,653 completed questionnaires were received. The questionnaires were made available as a six-page insert in subscriber copies of the magazine and online at the Global Traveler website www. globaltravelerusa. com/readersurvey (http://www. globaltravelerusa. com/readersurvey). Only those questionnaires where more than 50 percent of the questions were completed were counted; those answering fewer than 50 percent of the questions were discarded. Responses also were screened for duplication. Members of the travel industry and employees of FXExpress Publications were not allowed to participate.

Survey respondents spent a mean number of 61 nights last year on international business trips and 76 nights on domestic business trips. They took an average of 18 international flights and 21 domestic flights per person during that period. Of all respondents, 76 percent were male and 24 percent were female; average age was 45.
