FORT WORTH, Texas -- AMR Corp.'s plans for an industrywide travel reservations network appeared to be collapsing yesterday amid reports that the computer system was mired in technical difficulties.
Former AMR officials who remain close to the $125 million venture, known as Intrico, said Marriott Corp. withdrew its support for the deal yesterday.
Marriott's departure would make AMR the only remaining member of the consortium, which once included four companies.
Late Friday, the two other partners, Hilton Hotels Corp. and Budget Rent-A-Car, said they were dropping out of the deal. The two companies balked following announcements that the Confirm reservation system, scheduled to begin service tomorrow, was 18 months behind schedule.
