Whilst Sabrerushed to the defence of GDS rival Travelport on Tuesday evening after the row with American Airlines escalated further, Amadeus is keeping quiet.
In stark contrast to Sabre, which issued a statement with hours of the court ruling, fellow GDS Amadeus took two days to respond to queries about its position or viewpoint over the Travelport-AA fight.
Although the judge's decision earlier this week is only one element of the wider court battle between Travelport and American Airlines (lifting an injunction imposed by Travelport in November 2010 to stop AA removing its fares from Orbitz, the online travel agency of which Travelport owns 48%), ramifications are being felt across the industry.
Travelport is at loggerheads with American Airlines, claiming the carrier breached its long-term distribution agreement with the GDS.
So, while Sabre said it opposed the airline's "efforts to impose a costly and unproven system on travel agents and travelers" and that it agreed with others that America's actions would "make it much harder and more costly for agents and consumers to easily comparison shop among airlines", Amadeus - for the moment - is steering clear:
"We are aware that American Airlines has discontinued selling tickets through Orbitz. As per our normal policy, we do not comment on commerical arrangements between other companies."
Amadeus, similar to Travelport, will face talks to renew its full content distribution agreement with American Airlines next year. Its existing contract expires in the last quarter of 2011.
