Galileo Responds to AA Booking Fees, Launches Program

Galileo International announced the launch of a program that would protect agents from booking fees, as well as ensure full content from participating airlines. The program, called Galileo Content Continuity Program, is in response to American Airlines' decision to charge agents using certain GDSs, Galileo included, a $3.50 per-segment booking fee.

Carriers participating in the program include American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Northwest Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways.
