The claims made by American Express Travel Services in Patent Application us20120254261 are so generic that most of them are already widely implemented by a large number of travel companies.
The prior art exists for nearly all the claims, so I am not sure how narrowly the US Patent Office might grant a portion of this application, or whether it will be rejected in its entirety.
A method comprising:
Collecting, by a computer based system for creating a digital travel record, at least one of transaction account data particular to a transaction account, global distribution system data particular to a transaction account holder, and passenger name record data particular to a transaction account holder;
Modifying, by the computer based system, the collected data for integration with a service oriented architecture framework; and
Delivering, by the computer based system, the modified data as a module for use by an application.
