Expedia Claim "Unfair Playing Field!"

Expedia who almost tripled their second quarter profits to $114.3 despite hits associated with the Iceland volcanic eruption have claimed that the Google travel threat could create an "unfair playing field" if it started to favour its search results over those of third party travel companies.

Now is this the same Expedia that owns and operates TripAdvisor, creates controversial terms and conditions for hotels distributing product through its third party distribution channels and squeezes more and more commission out of accommodation providers during a time of hardship?

An unfair playing field eh... try being a thirty bedroom hotel in the west of Scotland
