Wilmington, Del. — Executives with American Airlines thought about buying a piece of Farelogix a few years back when they got wind that the tech developer, a key partner, might be for sale. No deal occurred after Farelogix owners floated a “buy it now” price of $500 million. Sabre in November 2018 announced an agreement to buy Farelogix for $360 million.
A United Airlines official said his company also considered investing in both 2015 and 2017. A third airline also was approached, he said.
