That was in the days when airlines paid commissions to most travel agencies (about 10 years ago) on paid tickets. Airlines still pay travel agent commissions for many international flights/airlines/routes and the good travel agents won't even charge you a service fee for those. But having the airline pay the travel agent and having the passenger pay the travel agent are two different things
