Several popular online travel companies are joining forces to oppose Google Inc.'s proposed $700 million purchase of ITA Software Inc., the leading provider of flight data, saying the deal would give it too much sway over the travel sector. Expedia Inc., Kayak.com, Sabre Holdings and Farelogix Inc.—which operate half-a-dozen leading online travel sites—are forming a coalition called FairSearch.org to persuade the Justice Department to block Google's latest deal.

Wow.  That would be a scary deal if it were allowed to go through.  I'm all for free enterprise but when you have a juggernaut like Google running around buying up the "engines" that run major travel sites then that's just too much power in one place.
