American Airlines says it will no longer sell tickets on the
Orbitz travel website, effective immediately.
The announcement by the nation's third-largest airline came on
Tuesday after a judge in Chicago said he would not block American
from pulling its flight information off of Orbitz.
The airline said its tickets sold previously on Orbitz are still
valid. And American Airlines tickets can still be bought at the
airline's own website as well as other travel websites.
American is a unit of AMR Corp. Orbitz is run by Orbitz
Worldwide Inc. American also said it would not sell tickets through
the Orbitz for Business website.
