    $AMZN - Why is there no Amazon Travel - MetaSearch to buy hotels or airfare ? ( It has all the ingredients needed to easily scale business ?

      : good point...maybe because others like priceline and expedia buy inventory at wholesale to resell and amzn might not want to hold inventory/

      : They could definitely create a site to complete MetaSearch Alone - Remember Kayak was a multi-billion dollar business with no Inventory ?
