I have been using Kayak.com to find the cheapest tickets, hotels, and rental cars for a few years now (no I am not getting paid to say this). Looks like American Airlines didn’t like the fact that Kayak was pushing customers to other travel sites like Orbitz and Expedia instead of their direct site. Took Kayak to court and Kayak dropped all American Airlines listings.
Ah. The beauty of business sometimes. While all the bickering goes on, it just becomes more difficult for us, the customer to find the best deal and save a little money.
