Expedia dumps American Airlines listings

NEW YORK | Sun Jan 2, 2011 3:50pm EST

(Reuters) - Online travel agency Expedia Inc has dropped tickets for American Airlines from its listings, charging that the airline's new commercial strategy is "anti-consumer" and "anti-choice."

The move, made over the weekend, is the latest development in a feud between the airline and agencies such as Expedia and Orbitz.

American removed its listings and other features from Orbitz last month, saying it needed to cut distribution costs. It also contended the model used by online travel agencies prevents it from offering the lowest possible fares.
