In today's issue of Travel Weekly, I read that IATA took accreditation from 4 host travel agencies. The article referred to these host agencies being in the MLM industry. Has anyone heard which agenciesthe article is referring to? The article did not mention any specific names.

I would love to know which 4 got stripped of their credentials especially in light of all the card mill controversy going on now. About a year ago I read were there were groups being formed to shut down the cardmill MLM type agencies.

If anyone gets the list please post here.

Thanks!

Terri

Wonder why the news would be posted that 4 host agencies had their IATA numbers stripped and than notgive the names of the host agencies, rather strange.

I am with Joystar and they are fine.
But I am concentrating more on GRN right now.

its part of the scare tactic to get rid of us, and to scare people away from companies like ours. Right now certain individuals are riding high, busting their coat buttons because they are angry over the money they ahve lost over the years to online travelbooking. Our companies are the scapegoats. they have won a few skirmishes but the war "ain't" over
