For a brief shining moment travel agents—and a few veteran reporters— had hope that there had been a turnaround in relations between Delta Air Lines and travel agents. Alas, the hope evaporated quickly. A spokesman for Delta offered Travel Agent the following comment on reports of Delta offering a 10 percent commission:
“Delta Air Lines is offering a limited term promotional campaign on selected routes with targeted accounts that have an existing relationship with the company. This specific promotion targets flights originating in the New York area to Delta's Latin America region only.”
That is it. At least until the next time Delta needs to spark sales.
