Picture this: You sign into a travel metasearch site, where it may know your zip code, gender, e-mail address and preferred alliances, and after conducting a flight query, an airline may return offers for free Wi-Fi, reduced rates for premium seats and bag fees, or perhaps an upgrade, all personalized for you.

Airlines have done a bunch to make personalized offers to their own loyalty program members through email marketing and some pledge to do likewise through direct-connects, but now they are pushing to take what they term “traveler authentication” to metasearch sites, where perhaps they can attract new customers and more efficient bookings.
