I think Leno's writers would have a tough time making this stuff up. Even one of the "most influential people in travel" does not even seem to know what his own company--"the largest seller of travel in the world by 2010" is doing. Dear Kim---#1, probably not the best idea to put your CONFIDENTIAL commission percentage out there on Facebook for all the world to see. And #2, when you answer a question, sometimes it makes sense to be correct about it. But now that the truth is out, maybe you can explain to your "Facebook Family" why the percentage went down 12.5%. Maybe Ann Sedgwick can come on and maybe explain how YTB had their commission reduced in a "banner year". I am sure your "Facebook Family" would like to know!
PS--YTB does not pay commission, Carnival pays commission. YTB splits it!
