"We spent years gathering feedback from our customers, airport agents and flight attendants, incorporating it into everything from seat design to dining options to amenities, and fine-tuned each element of our business class to make sure that we offer an experience that not only meets our customers' needs, but goes above and beyond," saidMark Krolick, vice president, marketing at United. "This recognition is a testament to all of our employees who work so diligently to ensure that we provide customers with the absolute best in international business travel. Thank you to the International Flight Services Association for this distinction."
