I agree with previous posters in that this is nothing but a large ad for the Amadeus group. I think it should be totally removed and some of the information put in a page for [[Amadeus CRS]], similar to [[Galileo CRS]] and Worldspan etc. I've tried to trim it down a bit, but even the title does not match what the article would become.

I think this page was written by a company representative and is biased. For example, these statements look subjective:

Amadeus tagline, "Your technology partner", reflects the approach they take towards their customers. They focus on building and maintaining mutually beneficial long-term relationships.

Amadeus' greatest strength is its ability to form successful mutually-beneficial partnerships with its customers. By working effectively with those immersed in the business of travel and tourism, the company has been able to design winning solutions for travel booking and travel management.

I definitely agree. I'm tagging this page until it's solved. Oskilian 06:45, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
No doubt about it. In fact, at one point they even use the word "Our" when describing the company. Someone needs to clean this up. Shame on you Amadeus. 69.237.180.158 17:34, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

The page has been updated according to the above comments. User:cgondar 15:40, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

No, it hasn't. It's still blatently advertising copy - and it's badly written and edited. This page is a disgrace, and does nothing but tarnish Amadeus's (note the use of the apostrophe, which is something the writer doesn't) reputation.


This article reads directly like an advert, it'll either need a complete rewrite or deleted altogether. Rayward 15:43, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Replaced ad tag 22May08

I've put the ad tag back in, as it is nothing but an advertisment for Amadeus. The last edits were from a user on behalf of Amadeus. (At least they're honest). But not sure we even need an article on this, as the CRS page should cover most of the information on this page. Seriously trim and make NPOV - or delete article completly.--Dmol (talk) 21:17, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Suggest moving to page for CRS. (Central Reservation System)

I agree with previous posters in that this is nothing but a large ad for the Amadeus group. I think it should be totally removed and some of the information put in a page for Amadeus CRS, similar to Galileo CRS and Worldspan etc. I've tried to trim it down a bit, but even the title does not match what the article would become. Suggestions please.--Dmol 19:48, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

The reason the name of the article is called Amadeus IT Group is because the group in question is called Amadeus IT Group, thank you for not calling it CRS... You really don't need to impose your ignorance to everybody, you might want to rename the Mc Donalds article "fat farm" as it might look more objective

Removed ad tag.

I have trimmed this article down considerably, and I think it is enough to justify removing the advertisement tag. Most of the info had been pure promotional spam, and much of it has now been moved to the new page for Amadeus CRS where it belongs.--Dmol 14:07, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

moving

I moved the essential parts from the CRS to Amadeus CRS which should end up similar to Sabre CRS. This page Amadeus IT Group should look like Sabre Holdings, the holding company. Mion 02:16, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Ad information removed. Left here as basis for rewrite.

Today, through Amadeus, 90,274 travel agency locations and 29,663 airline sales offices around the world are able to make bookings with:

  • 490 airlines.
  • 77,000 hotel properties, 248 hotel chains
  • 22 car rental companies, serving over 36,000 locations
  • 106 rail providers
  • 200 tour operators
  • 82 insurance providers in 50 countries
  • Other travel provider groups (ferry, cruise)

Amadeus has subscribers in 217 markets (i.e. countries) worldwide; covering these different markets by delivering localized solutions for marketing, customer services and support through a network of over 65 Amadeus Commercial Organizations(ACOs). --Dmol (talk) 20:57, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I do not understand, these are only facts, not an ad. Wikipedia is an encyclopaedia, so I do not see why figures should not be part of it. With the exception of "over 65" which is nonsense, I see no ad there. Can you clarify? Vincent Lextrait (talk) 05:13, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
I think there was a reasonable amount of time to debate the issue. As no reason was supplied, I restore the article to its original version, removing the "over" word from the original language. Vincent Lextrait (talk) 18:49, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Please insert here any comment on possible remaining tracks of advertisement tone in the article. In the absence of substantiated comment for, say, one month, I propose to remove the tag. Vincent Lextrait (talk) 18:57, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

In the absence of comment supporting the idea that the tone is commercial, I remove the tag. Vincent Lextrait (talk) 09:50, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

I believe the article is still full of PR puff and justifies the advert tag. For example:

"Throughout the 1990's, Amadeus continued developing innovative and user-friendly products" - who says so?

"The company has come a long way since its launch in 1987 and its track record of strong growth speaks for itself."

"Today, Amadeus is not only the world’s leading travel distributor, but it is also living its mission to be the leading provider of IT solutions that enable success in the travel and tourism industry."

"Throughout the organisation, and in all the markets in which Amadeus operates around the world, the corporate values of Partnership, Team Spirit, Excellence and Leadership are identified by employees and embedded in business and management processes."

"this contract is widely referred to in the industry as the deal of the century"

"Amadeus is making further progress in the creation of a world-class IT services division"

"Seeking to provide its customers with the highest levels of product and service quality"

There are far too many adjectives. Rewriting the history to use past tense would help. I bet the person who wrote this article copied and pasted from the company's web site.

Paul Foxworthy (talk) 05:15, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Actually, if you look well at the history, it is not "still" full of PR, but "again" full of PR. At the time I removed the ad flag, the language you refer to was not there (yet). I agree it needs to be fixed. Vincent Lextrait (talk) 16:56, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Within a week of you removing the tag, the article more than tripled in size. This article needs serious trimming, starting with those copious lists that are not encyclopedic. The tag should not be removed after a set time, but only removed when the article is back to what it should be.--Dmol (talk) 21:38, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
That is exactly what happened, I fixed the article, it was back to what it should be, then I set an additional one month delay, and as it had remained okay, I removed the tag. I do not understand what you find wrong with this. Vincent Lextrait (talk) 05:58, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

I can see significant changes from an anonymous IP address. Maybe we need to be more vigilant and revert some changes. Paul Foxworthy (talk) 05:00, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

         I am the one who originally modified the article, basing myself on some Amadeus documentation. I am sorry I left in some PR in there by mistake, all the examples above have been legitimately removed. BUT it is no reason for cutting down the whole history chapter!!! It was full of facts, just because you don't have time to work on the article doesn't mean you need to tear down hours of work?!? Thank you for restoring ALL the facts that were in there instead of just spitting on people's compositions...  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.30.139.131 (talk) 16:25, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
