Quick update on recent post on CWT France moving their GDS contract from Amadeus to Sabre. An industry insider from Europe sent me a few info pieces to add to the rumours around this migration. Story is that the migration has been in the works since as early as late 2006 - under the secret project name "Project Score". There have been commercials issues for the delay from then until know but (as is often the case) there are some technology issues. Looks like there was/is some work to be done between Sabre and SNCF that has been problematic. This all conjecture and innuedo but adds to a great story.
Any Amadeus or Sabre officials out there wish to comment?
