Airlines vs. GDS vs. Online Travel Agencies

Have you ever wondered:

  • why some airlines can be found on online travel sites, while others can’t?
  • why some airlines provide their cheapest fares only on their own websites?
  • why all airlines are marketing their own website on every occasion they can?
  • why airlines mention GDS costs among their biggest expenditures?

Check out this video from by Farelogix, that is a great summary of the current battle between airlines, online travel agencies and GDSs.

    Hi, just completed my B.E. and now I am interested in going for GDS online training and that too in airlines. So, basically I am confused about certain things as which I came across that there are cetain different GDS like amadeus, Galileo, Sabre and some others. I found out that above are the one in demand and so just came across this online training and was wondering as this online training will help me to prepare of I have to go for any other Manual training. Kindly provide some light on this too! would really be thankful for your comments.
