In the News: Tnooz article “Open Allies pressures DOT to reject IATA’s Resolution 787″
July 17th, 2013

From the Tnooz article:

“Not good enough!” That’s the cry of several airline distribution players, as they try to thwart the International Air Transport Association (IATA)‘s effort to fix its much-critiqued proposal for changing the industry’s messaging standards for airfare content.

Industry opponents are swinging what they hope are the knockout blows to IATA’s industry-changing proposal Resolution 787, which currently waits for approval from the US Department of Transportation (DOT). …

Will the DOT take it upon itself to accept IATA’s document with what are essentially a bunch of redlines, cross outs, and addendums scribbled on it. Or will it reject the proposal, requiring IATA to re-submit it?

A decision looms by autumn.
