Multi-city pricing and strategy

Jump to last reply

I am planning a route as follows; want to stay on US Air (or American I suppose):

--Tampa to Paris on July 23 (via Charlotte)
(will take train July 29 from Paris – Amsterdam)

--Amsterdam to Tampa on Aug 13 (via Philadelphia).

Since the return flight on Aug 13 would go through PHL, we are considering staying a few days there, and returning PHL to TPA on Aug 16.

Here’s the question: On Orbitz, the 3 legs with the stop in PHL come to $1540 on US Air and others. However, on US Air’s site, the price is >$1700 for 3 legs, but $1540 if we skip the stay in PHL. Kayak is at the $1700 level for 3 legs.

Is this typical? I realize I can call US Air, but appreciate any insight or input before I do so. Thanks in advance!
