Northwest Stops Offering Tickets on Priceline

If you live in Detroit or Minneapolis, don’t expect to get a nonstop ticket the next time you bid on Priceline.  Northwest pulled its inventory from the name-your-own-price service after a disagreement about distribution terms.  Northwest has been the most aggressive carrier when it comes to distribution costs, having pulled its inventory from Expedia and Cheaptickets at one time or another over the past couple of years.  Northwest also introduced a fee for tickets sold through travel agencies earlier this year, which caused Sabre to stop listing the airline’s business class inventory.  That move nearly shut the airline down and, 1 day later, Northwest discontinued the fee.
