A Forced Landing For Twa


In Business This Week

A FORCED LANDING FOR TWA

THE WEAKEST BUCKLED FIRST. On May 9, financially strapped TWA said it was backing off the $50 cap on travel agent commissions imposed by the industry last February. Under an agreement with the American Society of Travel Agents, TWA will resume paying 10% commissions on all domestic tickets.
