Booking flight on Turkish Airlines to Odessa

Jump to last reply

Book on the airline site or on Orbitz?

I do most of my flying on Delta and only very infrequently wind up booking through anything but their familiar website. For an upcoming trip I need to fly from Istanbul to Odessa and Delta just doesn't go there. I've found a flight on Turkish Airlines that I can book either through their site or on Orbitz. Need guidance on which approach is smarter. Neither site will let me choose seats yet for a May flight. The Turkish Air site says I can't do that until Feb. 13 and the Orbitz site just says not available for seat selection yet. which approach will make it easier for me to select seats when it comes time? Which will be best in case there wind up being any issues with the flight, etc? Price is almost identical so no issues there.

I guess this question is a lot like the one that so frequently gets asked about whether it is better to book a hotel directly through the hotel's website or through a booking site like Booking.com.

So, are there any advantages to booking direct vs. through Orbitz? Any downsides? Please share your insights and experiences. Thanks.
