Corporate travel buyers voted Delta Airlines their favourite airline this year, nabbing the top spot from former titleholder Continental, which is completing a merger with United, according to Business Travel News.Delta came in first in five of 10 categories, including flexibility in negotiating transient pricing and complaint/problem resolution.

It beat out United/Continental by 2/10 of a point.

American Airlines, which came in second place in last year’s survey, dropped to fourth place.
