14-Dec-2009 11:51 AM

Japan Airlines, as part of its corporate restructuring efforts, reportedly plans to reduce the sales commissions to travel agencies for domestic air tickets by more than 50% (The Yomiuri Shimbun, 12-Dec-2009). JAL currently pays sales commissions to travel agencies on domestic tickets at rates of 5-7%, with this to be reportedly reduced to 0-2.5%. Both JAL and ANA have previously abolished the ticket sales commission system for international services.
