Amadeus, which distributes airfares to travel agents, has come out in support of Expedia’s decision to file a complaint against Google with the European Commission. “It is critical to ensure that Google Flight Search does not mislead consumers into believing that Google offers comprehensive and neutral results,” Amadeus said in a statement.

“In fact they (the results) may be biased, favouring Google’s own services even if they are of a lower quality and an even higher price than other services offered by independent travel distributors.

“It also leads to consumers potentially missing out on the best price available in the market, and limits fair competition between airlines.”
