American moves to firm up deal with HP

American hopes sometime in the near future to firm a key MOU it signed with Hewlett- Packard in August 2009 for the development of a new passenger service system.

“As we sit here today, we have not signed a definitive agreement. We have been engaged in very detailed and comprehensive and good conversations with HP. We just haven’t pushed it over the finish line yet, but we’re still heavily engaged and expect to do it sometime in the near future.”

The deal to develop the new system dubbed Jetstream was a coup for HP. American opted not to award the business to its long-time partner and former subsidiary Sabre, and denied Amadeus a potential key win in the USA.

Here is a story outlining the deal.
