Orbitz-Do they often change departure/arrival times after you have booked a flight?

Jump to last reply

I booked a flight on Orbitz (first time) about two and a half weeks ago, to fly from Houston to Paris with a layover in Dallas on May 22 returning May 30. So far, they have sent me two notices that American Airlines (the carrier we are flying on) has changed our flight time. The first time was when we were leaving Houston, now leaving one hour later. The second time was for our layover in Dallas on our return trip, getting us into Houston about 45 minutes later than before. So far, that has been two schedule changes in 18 days!

Is this a common occurrence with Orbitz? I use Orbitz to surf for pricing, as it were, and when I found this deal, I quickly checked on the AA site to see if they were offering it also. They weren't, for some reason, so I booked with Orbitz directly.

So far, the changes don't really mess up any of our plans but we've got nine more weeks to go and I'm worried about running into a change that WILL affect our plans.

I guess my question is, does Orbitz get special pricing from the airlines for certain flights in order to fill the flights and then tweek the flight times to maximize occupancy? I've never encountered a flight change before when I've booked directly with the airline.
