A few nice Travel Agencies images I found:
Iran Air Display III, Homa Hotel, Mashhad, Iran

The only thing better than one photo of a 747 travel agency model is two, three or more photos.
As you can see, I have a thing about this type of model aircraft.
When you taxi at the international airport in Tehran and in a few other cities, you quickly realize that Iran Air has a fairly large fleet of 747s (along with some dodgy Soviet-era transports and Airbuses).
It makes you wonder whether the parts and labor required to maintain a civilian 747 fleet are somehow exempt from U.S. and international economic sanctions against Iran. Or has Iran found a work-around in some gray market, or perhaps cannibalized some of its 747s for parts to keep the rest of the fleet in the air. It may even be possible Iran’s civilian air transports fall outside the sanctions. Wouldn’t that be kind?

Question by abbya11111: How do online travel sites compete with physical travel agencies?
Does anyone have any good websites on how online travel sites (travelocity, orbitz, cheaptickets) compete with physical travel agencies?
Answer by roseamis
The answer to that question is very simple. Brick and mortar – physical – travel agencies typically have to charge higher prices for vacations to cover their operating expenses and to pay their travel agents. Online travel sites have access to all of the same travel providers that brick and mortar agencies use. Because of lower overhead, the prices that are charged are lower resulting in better prices for the traveller.
The most common and more successful travel portals are Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz. Simply speaking, these sites have replaced the travel agent. What they are
actually doing is purchasing “travel” at wholesale from a consolidator, marking the price up, then selling to you.
Without the need for a traditional business location, and with the sales of paid advertising on their websites, allows them to pass on greater savings than the “brick and mortar”
agents or the smaller offline and online travel agencies who simply cannot compete.
What is a travel consolidator?
At any given time, the travel industry, that being airlines, hotels, resorts, cruises, timeshares and so on, is operating at a 30-40% vacancy rate. Rather than let this “inventory” of rooms and seats sit idle, travel and tour providers offer
their “vacancies” to what are known as “consolidators” or “wholesale” travel distributors. These “consolidators’ then make this discounted inventory available to insider travel
agents and portals such as Expedia, who then offer “marked up” deals.
Hope this answer helps.

Nevada Senator Harry Reid today discussed the letters he has received in response his letter to federal agencies regarding travel discrimination against cities known as resort destinations. Reid’s letter followed correspondence with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who made it clear that there is no room in the Obama administration for a federal travel policy that prohibits travel to any particular U.S. city.

I am experiencing that one of travel agency in Australia put in me financial trouble and do not care and keep ignoring my requests. Some people say that they will not care of it because I am in overseas right now. The fault was made by the employee of the agency and misled to cancel a tickets.
If you purchased a ticket by credit card, get in touch with the credit card company. If you need immediate help, go to your embassy – though they won’t provide financial help.
If you are looking to become a travel agent, or want a job in the travel industry, you need to hear about this!
