    ATLANTA, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- When a traveler learns of a fantastic
 fare for an upcoming trip but can't find an available flight at that fare,
 there's a problem. Customers can quickly lose faith when their travel agent or
 online reservations service can't deliver a flight for an advertised low fare,
 even if available flights that match the fare are few and far between.
 Worldspan has the solution.

     Worldspan today introduced Worldspan Power Flight Search(SM), a
 revolutionary new global fares search engine designed to find and display the
 lowest fare for the traveler's destination then intuitively "zero in" on
 available outbound and return flights and dates for the desired fare.
     Now available to Worldspan travel agency subscribers and electronic
 commerce customers worldwide, Power Flight Search provides a comprehensive
 search of all lowest available fares for a given itinerary-domestic or
 international-including eligible negotiated fares.  This time-saving new
 search engine searches multiple days to confirm the lowest fare and offers up
 to 10 round-trip options matching that fare.
     Power Flight Search is the next generation of Worldspan Power Products,
 the Company's state-of-the-art productivity tools designed to find the very
 best travel values available.  The new search tool is offered at no extra
 charge to current Power Products users, both travel agencies and e-commerce
 partners.  Other Power Products include:
 
     *  Power Pricing(R), a time-saving tool that, with a single keystroke,
        finds the lowest fare for a confirmed itinerary, domestic or
        international.  At the same time, Power Pricing searches fares, rules
        and availability to determine whether alternate carriers or routes in
        the Worldspan global database provide lower-priced options.
 
     *  Power Shopper(R), a powerful enhancement to Power Pricing that searches
        for low fares and available seats at the same time, without first
        booking an itinerary.  The agent utilizes a user-friendly script with
        point-and-click technology, with no special format knowledge required.
        Power Shopper displays multiple available trips and provides an option
        for automatic confirmation.
 
     Power Flight Search builds on these proven fares and pricing tools,
 searching for available flights that meet the requirements of a selected fare.
 Incorporating a calendar-based search capability, the new tool searches up to
 three days ahead of the specified outbound and return dates to meet fare
 criteria.  In addition, Power Flight Search takes advantage of Worldspan's
 first-to-market ability to search all fares, including eligible private and
 negotiated fares filed through Airline Tariff Publishing Company (ATPCO).
     Worldspan provides global electronic distribution of travel information,
 Internet products and connectivity, and electronic commerce capabilities for
 travel agencies, travel service providers and corporations worldwide.  The
 company's three lines of business are travel supplier services, e-commerce,
 and global distribution systems for the worldwide travel industry.  The
 Worldspan reservations system provides nearly 21,000 travel agencies and other
 users worldwide with travel data and booking capabilities for hundreds of the
