With American Airlines battling Orbitz and Expedia over the airline’s insistence that they access the airline`s flights through direct-connects, what kind of traction is the fledgling AA Direct Connect getting?

It’s a difficult question to answer because American isn’t providing client names and specifics as some companies understandably fear that signing up will put a target on their backs.
