Subject: IATAN is bad for small business!


I have had the misfortune of dealing with IATAN in the past.
I worked as computer programmer for a small tour operator. We
subscribed to the IATAN travel agent list which gave us an updated
list of travel agents that we used to retrieve address information for
travel agents calling on phone.
Then IATAN dropped the bomb. They significantly increased the price of
the list (the LAN version currently costs $5,000), which is out of
the reach of most small businesses.
Do they own the list of travel agents? NO, but they have a monopoly,
and they are going to milk it for everthing they can get!
PLEASE, DO NOT give IATAN control over .travel domains.
They have demonstrated in the past that they will overcharge the
consumer when given the chance!
