Priceline has long warned that Google’s and Bing’s “inroads into online travel” loom as potential threats and now it has added Kayak.com hotel bookings as a concern, too.

In a financial filing May 6, Priceline states:

Some meta-search sites, such as Kayak.com, which recently began offering its users the ability to purchase tickets directly on its website, may evolve into more traditional online travel sites with ticket-booking capability.
