ORBITZ / AMERICAN AIRLINES round trip ticket SCAM BEWARE!!
ORBITZ / AMERICAN AIRLINES round trip ticket SCAM BEWARE!! I purchased a round trip ticket from DBQ to ELP then ELP back to DBQ for $400. Shortly after purchasing the ticket plans changed and I needed an earlier departure time from DBQ to ELP. I called both Orbitz and American Airlines about changing the first flight to an earlier time. It cost more to change the "roundtrip ticket" flight to an earlier time than the total cost of the roundtrip ticket! I could buy a one-way ticket from DBQ to ELP (on the earlier flight I wanted) for $200 or pay ORBITZ/ AMERICAN AIRLINES another $450 to change the round trip ticket. I purchased the $200 one-way ticket.
This morning when arriving at the airport for the return flight (part of the original round trip ticket) I find that the ticket had been canceled. Why? Because the first ticket flying to ELP had not been used??? After speaking to both Orbitz and American Airlines, my only choice for flying back to DBQ today…. Buy a new ticket. Although I had booked and paid for a ticket already!!
So if you buy a roundtrip ticket from ORBITZ/AMERICAN AIRLINES and you want to change a portion of the flight. They will charge you significantly more than the original ticket to change the flight. However if you do not use all flights on the original ticket they will cancel the rest of the flight making them unusable. Therefore the "smart" choice is to book a "whole" new ticket instead of using the existing ticket. This allows them to "resale" the original seat, basically charging twice for one seat!
Total cost to fly from DBQ to ELP $1200! Wow what a SCAM.
