Subject: IATA is  N O T  a good selection


It is interesting to read the various posts and how one could become confused.  Readers could take opinions express, regardless if they are inaccurate, as fact.  For example the notes that IATA is unbiased and independent.  That statement alone is the farthest from the truth that there is.

IATA is OWNED by and OPERATED by airlines.  Plain and simple.  The .air TLD is for them.  The TLD .travel should be for other travel organinzations, such as travel agencies, tour operators, destinations, and other SUPPLIERS.  IATA has proposed outrageous fees, and can never be trusted to operate fairly.  They dont now in their normal operations, why would anyone believe they would change their ways for this TLD?

ICANN should definitely deny this application.  There are many other organizations that are better suited, independent, and can be depended upon to be unbiased.
