Oh, tariff-ic!


Sabre said it will charge airlines a mildly prohibitive $70,000 fee each time they want to make electronic tickets available through the CRS in a new country. This is what I enjoy seeing in the travel industry: efforts to discourage technological advancement. Next thing you know, air travel is convenient, printing costs are down, trees are saved -- stop the madness!

Travel agent Ron Monks says he is in the process of forming a corporation whose goal is to take over TWA and make it a REAL agent-friendly airline. One day, everybody's crowing about how agents need to be less reliant on airlines. The next day, agents are trying to acquire airlines. When it comes to confusing relationships, this industry beats anything on "Melrose Place."
