travel-diaryIf you visit American Airlines website (AA.com), you’ll immediately see their notice that sites Expedia and Orbits are no long offering American Airlines fares. Tickets purchased via those two sites are still valid, but according to American, a commercial dispute with Expedia and the inability to reach “a mutually beneficial agreement with Orbitz” led to their severing of ties.

They reassure their site is the key place to find the most current information and rates. Or to compare flights and fares, they recommend visiting Kayak.com and Priceline.com.

Neither Expedia or Orbitz mention the dissolution on either of their sites.
