France's Synhorcat hoteliers union says it has filed a lawsuit against U.S.-based Expedia, alleging the online booking site, along with its sites TripAdvisor.com and Hotels.com, were taking part in unfair commercial practices. Hoteliers allege information about hotels on TripAdvisor does not include links directly to the hotels, but customers are instead automatically directed to Expedia, and if the hotel does not have an agreement with the company, the site indicates the hotel is full.
