Tread lightly

Microsoft recently sold its 1 millionth air ticket through its various travel technologies, including its on-line agency, Expedia. I'd crack a joke here, but I'm afraid it might crash my copy of Word or Windows 95 or something.

According to Travel Industry Association figures, two of every five U.S. adults attended or participated in an organized sporting event while on a trip of 50 miles or more during the past five years. The TIA poll failed to note, however, that the remaining three of those five U.S. adults were really, really annoyed that the other two didn't want to do more sightseeing.

American Airlines and American Eagle are offering "relief" fares from the U.S. to many Caribbean destinations that were hit by Hurricane Georges. Upon learning of the fares, some hopeful but na´ve agents were disappointed to learn that "relief" didn't also include higher commissions.
