Business Travel Coalition brings out blog

The Business Travel Coalition (BTC) will be publishing a blog throughout
  the upcoming National Business Travel Association (NBTA) International
  Convention & Exposition in Chicago. The focus of the blog will be
  strictly on airline distribution system reform announcements, educational
  sessions and informal debates.

  The moment of truth has arrived for travel industry distribution as the
  first market-driven business model(s) emerge after 20 years of U.S. DOT regulation.

New, long-term airline-GDS agreements are virtually all in
  place, but if and how corporate travel managers will help shape these
  agreements into beneficial industry business models remains uncertain
  amidst great risk. Some of these agreements are shrouded in secrecy and
  could be toxic for corporate managed travel programs, as they become
  clearer. The Air Canada Tango action could represent just the tip of the
  iceberg with regard to content fragmentation, extra complexity-driven
  costs and corporate travel program credibility.

  BTC will update its blog several times during the Convention beginning
  Sunday, July 16 and concluding Wednesday, July 19.
