In 2017, Caterpillar, whose revenue was $45.5
billion in 2017, improved the discounts and reporting it receives from its
airline partners. The company has a single global policy but last year reduced
the number of regional exceptions in its air policy. This year, it plans to
clarify its premium class policy and decide whether to remove premium economy.
Caterpillar's U.S.-booked air spend rose $8.5 million in 2017, and the
manufacturer projects a similar increase, $8.6 million, this year. Of the
company's 2017 U.S.-booked air spend, 56 percent was for international travel.
Three-fourths of Caterpillar's 2017 U.S.-booked airline tickets went through approved
online tools, and 70 percent of those required no agent assistance. The company's
card program is individual bill/central pay.
