DOJ seeking more info on Google-ITA deal

The search giant is experiencing a delay in acquiring ITA, which provides software for plane fare comparison sites such as Orbitz.

Google's proposed acquisition of flight information software company ITA isn't going to close quite as quickly as the search giant had hoped. Seems the Department of Justice isn't yet comfortable signing off on it and has sent Google a second request for information. That's going to hold things up for a while, though the company says it's "confident that the DOJ will conclude that online travel will remain competitive after this acquisition closes."
