Martin B. Deutsch created
Frequent Flyer magazine in 1980 and was editor-in-chief and publisher for 15 years. He also wrote a column called "Up Front" for
Frequent Flyer during those years. In a career that has spanned seven decades, he has published and edited dozens of other travel magazines, including
Travel Management Daily and
Travel Age. For many years, he also wrote columns for
Travel Agent magazines. After Joe Brancatelli created JoeSentMe.com in 2001, he called on Deutsch, his former boss at
Frequent Flyer, to create its noncommercial format. He is based in New York.
