Arbiter Dismisses New York Agency's Complaint

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Travel agent arbiter William McGee threw out a complaint against the Airlines Reporting Corp. by J&R Travel World of New York on the grounds that the firm failed to prosecute its grievances.

According to the decision, J&R Travel lost ARC accreditation last October for failing to replace its canceled bond.

Last December, the firm filed its complaint, alleging that its bond was canceled because ARC mistakenly placed it in default.

Meanwhile, ARC presented evidence that the firm had $32,991 in dishonored sales drafts and $23,051 in unpaid debit memos.

McGee said he asked the firm to respond by Jan. 20, but "no reply was forthcoming."

Separately, McGee revoked the ARC accreditation of the following firms:

* A Travel Shoppe Inc. of Athens, Ga.

McGee said the agency failed to keep the office open, advise ARC of a location change and pay in full for settlement shortages.

* International Cruise & Travel Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz.

McGee said the agency failed to keep the office open, advise ARC of a location change and file sales reports.

* Resource One Inc. (doing business as Resource One Travel) of Beverly Hills, Calif.

McGee said the agency failed to keep the office open and advise ARC of a location change.

* U Go Travel of Tamaqua, Pa.

McGee said the agency's phones were disconnected and it closed without notifying ARC.
