American Airlines, Orbitz settle legal dispute April 1, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — American Airlines says it has settled lawsuits with Orbitz over the online travel agency's display of information about American flights and fares.
The companies announced their settlement Monday. They did not disclose terms, and they declined to comment beyond a brief press release.
American has been fighting with Orbitz Worldwide Inc. and other companies that distribute information to travel agents. American says it can better tailor offers to customers if it provides flight and price information directly to travel agents.
The settlement with Orbitz faces review by the federal judge overseeing the bankruptcy reorganization of American and its parent, AMR Corp.
