Airlines to launch new site… agents mad.

from the get-a-new-job dept

27 Airlines have announced plans to launch a joint site that would offer discount airline tickets. Of course travel agents are mad, as you can see below… (give me a break).

    “This joint site is a clear attempt on the part of the airlines to lure consumers 
    onto the Web with lower prices and drive all their competitors out of business, 
    resulting in complete and total domination of the public airways,” said Joe Galloway, 
    president and chief executive of the Alexandria, Va.-based travel agents group
