Two companies that certainly deserve to
be on the Power List are not ranked because they chose not to cooperate in this
year’s survey, although they always have
done so in the past, and it was difficult to
estimate their sales volumes. STA Travel,
No. 12 in 2008, had been in the rarefied
billion-dollar category in recent years but
last year announced extensive closings of
retail stores as well as layoffs. Based on
those cuts, Travel Weekly believes sales
were in the area of $850 million.
In the case of Rich Worldwide Travel,
No. 37 in 2008, executives said financial
managers were “too busy” to deal with
the work needed to come up with a sales
figure. Based on sales of other companies who are of a similar size to Rich,
their sales were probably in the $220
million range. — Harvey Chipkin
