Any recommendation for a service / utility that you can import itineraries to and it will monitor and send you notifications for any schedule changes made by the airline anytime (like ticket booked 10 months in advance, and schedule change happened 2 months later)?

Trip-it pro only starts 3 days in advance of travel. Tripcase starts 24 in advance of travel. Airline email alerts are unreliable.

Need something better then GDS queues (as bookings are done in many different systems, some of which are shared with other agencies).

eliteitinerary.com? TripCase?

Eliteitinerary sends schedule change notifications? Tripcase only starts notifications 24h before travel.

They all do. The question is, how far in advance of travel does it start?

What's the earliest in advance of travel have you seen CMT alerts?

In Sabre, is there a way to long sell more then 3 flight segments at once?

Pasting anything more then 3 lines, drops everything after the 3rd.

Answer is no. Found in the documentation:

Note: The maximum number of flights you can sell in one entry is three.

Does anyone know how the segment incentives in Amadeus work? Does it have to be specified in my contract anything about it in order to get it.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Yes,you would know if you have it. Its supposed to be in the contract.
When you open the account, they usually give you a 12 month contract without any benefits, (unless you prove them that you have lots of segments) once they renew your contract, they will look in to your segments and give you the monthly price and incentives according to the amount of segments you delivered

I am an independent agent of 27 years. I work from home and issue tickets through a host agency. I have Sabre Red, but over the years I've worked on Apollo, WorldSpan, and Amadeus as well. I have 2 clients that have some specific needs and due to the primary carriers they fly on one would  be better served by WorldSpan and the other by Amadeus due to special functions both GDSs have relevant to DL in the case of WorldSpan and with LH/BA/AF/KL in the case of Amadeus. I have looked into getting stand-alone contracts with both, but WorldSpan said I need to be affiliated with a TravelPort agency (my host agency is not) and after supplying Amadeus with my booking numbers from Sabre (I have my own PCC which is bridged to the host agency), they came back with a contract I was not really excited about. Amadeus in particular was aggressive in wanting me to move over more bookings/segments to them than I am wiling to do. I am not giving up Sabre. I just need to supplement what I already have. Does anyone have either WorldSpan or Amadeus and would be willing to create a sine-in to allow me access? Of course, I can supply my professional credentials, verification of Sabre PCC, etc.. and I would expect that access to self-ticketing would not be permitted. I currently pay $45/mo for SabreRed. PM me if you have questions or solutions.. Thanks!

Commissions? Agent incentive? Segment credit? Master PNR?

What does DL have relevant to WorldSpan? 1P is the most backwards system, the most costly, and that's the reason you can hardly find agents that use it except old timers. DL does not integrate with 1P as AA does with Sabre or any Altea Airline with 1A. - no reason IME to get WorldSpan

Amadeus shares the same the PNR with all Altea carriers, and it can be a pro & a con as both can see what is going on.

Commissions? I can get with some other programs.
What is segment credit?
