Travelport, AA reach content agreement

By Kate Rice
Travelport and American Airlines have signed a new content agreement and agreed to drop their court battles.

Travelport will sell American's new Main Cabin Extra seating, which gives customers more leg room and puts them at the front of the plane, by using American's XML-based direct connect.

Dan Westbrook, vice president and general manager of global distribution sales and services for Travelport, said that the new agreement means American can merchandise its full line of products through Travelport.

He said the agreement provides "consumers and travelers a transparent marketplace."

The terms of settling the litigation between the two companies must be approved by the court presiding over the restructuring of American's parent company, AMR Corp.
