It is getting extremely difficult to purchase American Airlines tickets, except on the airline website. Beginning Saturday, Jan.1, 2011, Expedia dropped all American Airline fares from its online travel site.
Again, as I have stated in two previous posts, the overall effect is travelers may notice higher prices on the online agency sites, such as Expedia and Orbitz, because they can no longer offer as many multi-airline fares. Multi-airline fares are tickets where the traveler takes various airlines to complete their trip. These tickets are often cheaper than flying one airline the entire way.
