Distribution, GDSs and low cost carriers – a view from the sharp end
Small emerging suppliers don't have time and money to embrace distribution. And many distributors fail to provide ideal solutions.
NB: This is a viewpoint from Bill Maloney, founder of FeeZing.
Having worked a long time for a global distribution system, I had heard every complaint suppliers have had about the cost of distribution.
But I also saw the power that distribution could bring. Later when I went to work for a new low cost carrier, I assumed I could bridge the gap. Despite good intentions from many companies, it wasn’t so easy.
