Global Distribution System Companies Delaying the Display of Airline Fees?

Global distribution system, or GDS, companies — which provide computerized reservations systems to travel agencies both on the Internet and in traditional “brick-and-mortar” storefronts — have allegedly been accused by Farelogix chief executive officer James Davidson of refusing to incorporate personalized passenger options such as ancillary airline fees in their products because it would “represent a threat to the current GDS commercial model”, according to an article in Travel Weekly.

Representatives of global distribution system companies vehemently deny the accusation, which was filed with the United States Department of Transportation.
