The "Vendor Centric" travel distribution model is compelling! If for no other reason than the "Golden Rule" ("He with the Gold, Makes the Rules")! Quite a few Vendors believe that this model is possible with the Internet. However, the Internet, as it now exists, has a number of flaws. Foremost among them is: "Without some intermediary, comparison shopping (from Web site to Web site) is so cumbersome as to be virtually impossible!" In addition, where would the PNR "live", and what would it "point/reference" to? And, what of the "Corporate Reports"?
