The Beat Announces 2022 Readers' Choice Winners

Readers of The Beat chose Delta Air Lines as the Most Admired Airline and also Supplier of the Year in its annual Readers' Choice awards. The airline has landed those two honors for 11 consecutive years.

Subscribers for the sixth straight year picked BCD Travel as Most Admired Travel Management Company. Amadeus for the fourth year in a row was chosen as Most Admired Travel Technology Company.

Meanwhile, Marriott International took top honors in the lodging category for a second consecutive year.

Other repeat winners include American Express as Most Admired Payment Company, which the payment company has dominated in each of the 15 years The Beat has fielded the annual poll. National Car Rental, meanwhile, for the seventh consecutive year drove home with the Most Admired Car Rental Brand award.

The Beat presented its Readers' Choice awards Wednesday at its 15th annual The Beat Live in New York City.

The awards were based on a poll fielded in September that asked subscribers to write in the company in each of six supplier segments that they "most admire for its policies, management style and service for business clients." Respondents who voted for their own companies were disqualified.
