American Airlines Leaves Orbitz

Fort Worth-based American Airlines has pulled its schedules and fares from Internet travel site Orbitz, the airline said Tuesday evening, after the two firms failed to reach an agreement on terms of those listings. American said, effective immediately, it will discontinue displaying and selling fares through Orbitz. American has been looking to pull its fares from Orbitz, and is instead looking to drive customers to its own web site, as well as travel agency partners who use its own, fare pricing system.
