Delta, American match United's cap


ATLANTA -- Delta and American matched United's cap on international commissions to U.S. travel agents, setting a maximum of $100 for roundtrip travel and $50 for one-way travel, effective immediately.

Delta, which pays over $1 billion a year in commissions worldwide, said it expects to save as much as $45 million as a result of the pay limit.

Delta's and American's moves, which were straight matches of United's new commission policy, dashed latent hope among some agents that one of the Big Three would go for a higher cap. It also further limits agents' options for alternative carriers.
