1. Do the airlines still give commissions on flights? If not, what is the benefit of an $2300 ARC #? —Anonymous

2. Hello! I have a quick question about workflows. If you have a travel services agreement, is it better to have clients sign that before or after you send quotes/proposals? I don't want to scare clients away before they see options, but I also don't want to waste my time! —Kristin R.
