Found interesting CRS source

Surfing the web, I found:
http://www.nexionnet.com/benefits/prices.htm

For $39 per month, and all startup fees waved, get access to all 4 GDS's.

I have no connection with this firm, I was searching for a GDS tool and stumbled on this.

This is one of the better places I've seen that provide access to the GDS/routing rules. It's been mentioned before here, but it only lets you access it yourself... you can't take it and make automated tools to query their system from a webpage or script. But if you're just looking to make some simple queries here and there and don't mind paying the monthly fee, then it is a pretty good source.

I wasn't sure if it had been mentioned before and did not find it in my search.

I had a long layover so I tried to search for new and unknown tools that might be available. I wonder if there are any foreign language boards or communities like Flyertalk elsewhere in the world that might have something we don't. Does anyone know?

Anyone use this service? Can you pull up reservation records as well, or is it just availability?

btw, there's a 1-year commitment to have the startup fee waived.

You should see their application process

I've seen fewer questions on a mortgage application.

If someone actually goes through w/ this, please post your experiences here. I would be interested in doing this, although the $39 seems steep. Anyone want to split a membership, say, four ways

Would it be possible to reserve your own tickets with this as well?

I'm kicking the idea around again. Heck, I waste $40/month on worse things, for sure.

(Sorry for reviving the old thread)

I started to join but backed out, way to complicated. Credit checks, contracts, copies of documents, like $2000 hold on credit card....

Not worth it, IMHO.

Really??? From talking to them they made it sound straightforward and nothing of the sorts.

That just sounds like a PITA.

Excuse my ignorance, but what does PITA stand for?

So is anyone going to do this because I would be interested in splitting this (if it's possible)...
