Looks like putting up a brave front to me

Travelport relies on diversity to compete

after having overpaid for acquisitions to the tune of about $ 1.2 billion they sure face giant hangover and maybe this is the strategy to go but the jury is definitely still out. They are a typical intermediary albeit one with long supplier relationships, especially Gulliver’s, but still a company in the middle with suppliers gaining the upper hand.

It will be interesting to follow their progress, especially abroad and in the direction of selling complex travel which is where the margins are for the OTAs.
