American Airlines no-go on Expedia

Expedia, the online travel booking organisation, has stopped selling American Airlines seat tickets on its website following a disagreement over terms.  The Dallas-based oneworld member claims that the travel retailer is too expensive.  Last month it broke its partnership with travel comparison site Orbitz Worldwide. 

With American now in partnership with British Airways and Iberia, both of whom are heavily endorsed by Expedia, and whose offerings feature around the top of any route listing, a real question mark hangs over its relationship with not only Expedia but also the Global Distribution Systems (GDS) such as Sabre and Travelport.  Sabre, says that it will drop American before its contract ends next September. www.aa.com www.expedia.com
