American Airlines still discussion with Orbitz about listings

American Airlines is talking to Orbitz and Expedia about recommence the listing of its flights with the online travel agencies.

An American Airlines official said Tuesday there are no instant plans to restore listings on Orbitz. Expedia declined to mention on whether it was discussing listing American flights again.

American pulled its flight listings from Orbitz when the two companies couldn't concur on a new agreement.

Expedia made American flights harder for consumers to discover, then dropped them totally over the weekend.

"We still want to remain relationships with all our present travel agencies," said Cory Garner, American's director of distribution strategy, "and we are open to distributing our fares (and) schedules in an efficient manner as mostly as possible, as well as through Orbitz and Expedia."
