American Airlines visiting travel agents with direct-connect contract push

14 May 2011

American Airlines employees have been visiting travel agents in several states over the last few weeks carrying several documents — nondisclosure agreements about their discussions and direct-connect licensing contracts.

The airline apparently is making a big push now to get travel agents to sign the direct-connect contracts because of a looming big day on the calendar, June 1.

By late January, after Sabre had biased American Airlines’ displays and hiked the airline’s GDS fees, and American had filed suit against Sabre and Travelport, Sabre and American agreed to put the legal battle on hold and to put the displays and fees back to normal while the two sides attempted to negotiate a new agreement.
