To stem their losses, the airlines have dramatically cut their commissions to travel agencies (like FLYR). This has historically been the travel agencies' primary source of income. The alternate source of income is a "pay for service" arrangement by the individual customer or corporate account. FLYR's competitors are the internet travel and airline sites offering "free" travel bookings usually at steep discounts vs. FLYR's "pay for service" arrangement at full fares PLUS THEIR FEE. Which would you prefer?
