If you’re looking for American Airlines business class, first class or international tickets, don’t look to Expedia. Effective immediately, those fares will no longer be available through the popular online broker. Domestic coach tickets; however, will still be available for purchase. If you’ve already bought your tickets, they will still be valid for travel. In the Press Release, American suggests customers purchase tickets through “a number of outlets,” including their website, www.aa.com.
Most people who purchase tickets from online brokers aren’t loyal to a specific airline, but if you REALLY want American tickets and you REALLY want to use a broker, they still seem to be available through Orbitz and Travelocity. If you’re concerned about your Thank You Points, Expedia still has an extensive list of airline partners.
