And that left Amadeus

Another day, another GDS signs with British Airways to renew its content distribution deal.

Looking forward to an early Easter egg is Worldspan, which became the third GDS to end what appears to have been reasonably fraught negotitations in recent months between all four leading players and the UK's flag carrier.

So just Amadeus remains without a deal, with Galileo [which, it must be remembered, could be merging with Worldspan in a few months anyway, subject to regulatory approval in the US] and Sabre Travel Network already enjoying their new relationship with BA.

So another signing before the crucial magical April 10 deadline looks a likely bet. Although there could yet be another twist to what has been a pretty captivating process so far.
