SkyTeam - Universal CO, DL & NW booking engine
Aug 24, 07, 6:37 am
SkycorpDirect.com is a ST-sponsored portal to book CO, DL and NW flights w/o a fee. Just $5 for others.
Might need a corporate contract to join. I haven't tried to register.
Full EQPs/EQMs for CO flights.

The registration page looks like it requires a corporate tax ID number and lots of other details, but I just left most of those blank and it seemed to accept my registration. We'll see if I get info in the e-mail about how to login or not...

I left most of the corporate stuff blank (no tax ID number, etc.). They e-mailed me to ask whether my company had a corporate travel policy. Once I answered that, they sent me details on creating an account.
The site is a rebranded Amadeus corporate travel site. It looks quite functional and seems to be finding the same fares as the airlines' sites. For a small business that needs to manage business travel and wants to focus on SkyTeam carriers, it could be a very good solution. But for my purposes, the individual airline websites seem more useful.
