Subject: IATA Application for .travel TLD


The audacity of the airlines' attempts to broaden their scope by controlling the entire travel industry worldwide never ceases to amaze me.  Their concentration should be on continually improving their product and in earning income on that product.  Instead, they choose to control entities outside of their realm and attempt to earn money from those entities.

Allowing the airlines in the form of IATA to have control over who would have the right to be able to use the TLD of .travel and to determine the cost would be neglegent toward both the non-airline entities in the travel industry and for consumers.  I respectfully ask that you consider the ramifications of accepting their agreement and reject their proposal.
