Sell! Sell! Good agent.

British Airways has started paying commission rates that fluctuate based on an agency's performance. "Underperforming" agencies will receive an inferiority complex and the monetary equivalent of a spanking; more supportive firms will get a higher rate and a gold star for every agent's forehead, and those that sell BA through the roof will get the highest rate, plus the bonus vegetable peeler absolutely free!

The Travel Company, which seems to buy a company each time its president, Joe Vittoria, blinks, claims Cruise Outlets of the Carolinas among its most recent acquisitions. With Cruise Outlets, a distributor that claims to make 60% of its sales over the Internet, the Travel Company stands to boost its Web presence substantially. Anyone wanna take bets on how long it takes before Bill Gates starts calling Joe "your highness"?
