Allegis again?

OK Hands up those who remember the name Allegis?

Well it seems that a small part of it must live on in people's memories. United and Westin are cooperating on the PS service (premium 757 transcon). Nice pillows and blankies an an Oasis of Calm in the red carpet clubs.

It was a cool idea... too bad it didn't work.

I do remember Allegis quite well. I also remember airlines all over the world deciding that they had to own a hotel chain or a car rental company.

It was the ancillary revenue movement of the 80s.

What's that line about history repeating itself?
