AA and Kayak Don't Mix?

What's happened? It looks like AA flights don't show (well their prices don't show) on Kayak, but they show on Orbitz. Does this mean that we're back to having to use multiple search engines?

Yeah, AA got pissy because Kayak was sending users to non-AA sites to purchase AA fares, so they pulled their flights from the search engine about two weeks ago. If you search google, I'm sure you can find an article on it.

Interesting. I thought that I've noticed this for longer than two weeks.

You are right - it was more like a month. I only saw the article two weeks ago

Thanks. AA's flights still show on Orbitz.

I guess most people are not like me. I usually book my round-trip tickets directly on AA to avoid paying a $5-$10 booking fee, but I use Kayak or Orbitz to compare prices.

Try this site - it still has AA and is a good search engine:

There are others as well with AA, like :

Good luck
