Delta Cuts Travel Agent Commissions

402497 04: Manager and travel consultant Kim Sherwan speaks with a client on the phone while seated at her desk in front of a world map March 18, 2002 at First-Maine Travel Agency in Des Plaines, IL. Delta Air Lines became the first carrier to stop paying travel agent commissions on individual tickets sold in the U.S. and Canada, a bold step that could save it hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Delta will continue to pay commissions to large agencies that can deliver significant business to it as well as for tickets purchased outside the U.S. and Canada. Other major carriers are expected to follow Delta as they did in 1995 when Delta was the first to cut the standard 10% commission on domestic tickets. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)
