Consumers are very interested in finding the best airline frequent flyer program. Most are willing to switch to another airline for the slightest discount. About 10 percent of flights are paid for with points or miles. So, consumers receive value in committing to an airline. They just need to find the right one.

  3. Alaska Airlines - Mileage Plan
  4. Southwest Airlines - Rapid Rewards
  5. JetBlue Airways - TrueBlue
