American Airlines removed its flights from the Orbitz online website because of a dispute between the two companies over fees. American states it will honor all existing tickets purchased prior to the removal.
I noticed the lack of flights to the Dominican Republic yesterday and wondered what was wrong. American had previously published some fair rates for the DR on Orbitz. Now I see what was wrong. Those travelers, such as myself, who used Orbitz to purchase multi-airline tickets that included an American flight, may find prices a little higher for one-airline tickets purchased via the American airlines website. Hopefully, the two travel providers will clear this problem up soon.
