Travolution@ITBPhoCusWright - Too darn nice

Day Two of the PhoCusWright conference is the same Day One - a move to give delegates that need to hold meetings elsewhere in ITB the opportunity to come and go as they please.

Carl Michel (Holidaybreak), Laurie Myers (Octopus Travel) and Damon Tassone ( are on stage talking about online travel agencies and tour operators.

A question comes up on the big screen message board

"Which of the following OTAs is nithe most precarious position as a business? Opodo or Ebookers?"
"Defintely not Ebookers, because of the [re-design] developments," says Myers.

"I'm ex-Opodo, so I won't comment," adds Michel.

Tassone sits quietly. The debate moves on...

What a shame...
